LOOK: Former Georgia star David Andrews celebrates shirtless at Super Bowl parade
Around the Dawghouse will bring you daily updates from what people and publications are saying about Georgia, from inside and outside of Athens.
David Andrews is living his best life at Super Bowl parade
There was a time when David Andrews thought his final game was going to be the 2014 Belk Bowl. Now he’s a two-time Super Bowl champion for the New England Patriots. And it’s safe to say Andrews knows how to celebrate.
Andrews, the starting center for the Patriots and former Georgia football star, went shirtless at the New England Super Bowl parade in Boston on Tuesday.
And social media absolutely loved it.

Of course Andrews is used to celebrating, as he’s played in three consecutive Super Bowls with the Patriots. He’s won two of them, as the Patriots beat the Rams 13-3 on Sunday thanks to Andrews and former Georgia running back Sony Michel.
But if you think winning has gotten old or stale for Andrews, he’s here to tell you that’s not the case. The Ringer’s Kevin Clark captured a great exchange of Andrews explaining to a reporter why winning will always be special.
Does it ever get old?” a reporter asked. “No. No, no, no,” he said, his voice shaking with emotion. “That’s the wrong word to use,” Andrews said, somewhat taken aback by the question. He’d dreamed of winning a Super Bowl his entire life and has won two and played in three. “It is the most amazing feeling in the world,”
While the rest of the football world might be surprised at Andrews’ success, Georgia fans aren’t. Andrews, despite being a 3-star recruit, was a three-year starter and captain for the Bulldogs. He wasn’t drafted, but signed with the New England Patriots after the 2015 NFL Draft. He started his first game as a rookie at center, and has been a key cog for the Patriots in each of their three Super Bowl appearances.
Andrews also had a stellar game on Sunday. Andrews and the Patriots gave up just one pressure to NFL Defensive Player of the Year Aaron Donald. The Rams star led the NFL with 20.5 sacks this season. The Patriots also gave up just one sack in the playoffs, despite facing three of the best pass rushing teams in the league.
While not every Georgia fan likes the New England Patriots, just about all of them should love what Andrews has become in the NFL.
