Give Christian Conley credit: He never forgot where he came from.
The former UGA standout now plays for the NFL’s Jacksonville Jaguars. Despite being in the big leagues now, he hasn’t forgotten his Bulldog roots – and his feelings toward the archrivals from the south.
Conley signed autographs after a Jaguars practice, and after putting his name on a young fan wearing a Florida Gators t-shirt, Conley smiled and remarked, “the Gators suck.”
The crowd of autograph seekers got a good laugh.
How deep is Conley’s disdain for the Gators? “I’ll rep Miami and Florida State before them,” he told the crowd.
The 26-year-old Conley played the last three seasons with Kansas City Chiefs. He played for UGA from 2011 to 2014 under former Bulldogs coach Mark Richt.
