ATHENS — Georgia football coach Kirby Smart and his Bulldogs took a break from the action at Butts-Mehre Heritage Hall to visit Camp Sunshine on Tuesday.
The team’s community service outing provided an opportunity to get a look at how some of the newcomers stack up physically and how other returning players are progressing.
It was an impressive looking group, and a dodge ball game and impromptu dunk session provided players an opportunity to show off their explosivity and quickness.
Freshman defensive back Tyrique Stevenson and tailback James Cook were particularly impressive, and it was clear defensive end Malik Herring has put his time in the weight room this offseason.
