ATHENS — Georgia football completed its second practice Saturday afternoon following the one-hour Fan Day festivities in the William Porter Payne indoor faculties.

The Bulldogs were outside for their workout, as Kirby Smart has maintained working out in the heat of day presents an opportunity to maximize conditioning while creating adversity for his team to conquer.

There’s a quiet undertone of focus and competition during the drills, the players’ side conversations at a minimum and the assistants’ instructions piping up loud and clear in each of the position groups.

Among the more interesting position battles to watch, Miami transfer Lawrence Cager continues to work with the first-team receivers, along with Tyler Simmons and Demetris Roberson.

On defense, senior Tae Crowder and junior Monty Rice were the inside linebackers and Azeez Ojulari was outside in the 3-3-5 alignment.

The secondary was as projected, for now, Eric Stokes and Tyson Campbell at cornerback, J.R. Reed and Richard LeCounte at safety, and Mark Webb currently No. 1 at Star.

The intensity in those position groups on Saturday was unmistakable.
