Determining Georgia’s 2018 Most Valuable Assistant coach
This week, we’re going to use Good Day, UGA to hand out some awards for the 2018 season. Today, we’re going to hand out pick Georgia’s most valuable assistant coach. On Monday, we named outside linebacker D’Andre Walker the team’s most valuable defensive player.
Smith and fellow former Bulldog Leonard Floyd were also a big reason that Rams had their worst offensive output of the season. They scored just six points, making it the first time all-year Los Angeles was held under 20 points. Former Georgia running back Todd Gurley finished the game with just 28 rushing yards, which is the fewest he’s had in a game since his rookie season.
So for shutting down one of the league’s best offenses and bringing in his first career interception, Smith is our Top Dawg of the week.

Week 1: ReShad Jones DB, Miami Dolphins
Week 2: Shawn Williams DB, Cincinnati Bengals
Week 3: Matthew Stafford QB, Detroit Lions

Two possible future Bulldogs to watch on Tuesday
On Tuesday, the state championship games in Georgia get started at 10 a.m. as Clinch County takes on Irwin Country. Georgia linebacker commit Trezman Marshall will be looking to win his third championship in four seasons with Clinch County before taking his talents to Georgia.
Then at the 1 p.m. ET, 5-star wide receiver Jadon Haselwood will take the field for the final time for Cedar Grove High School, as it takes on Peach County. Haselwood will be looking to win his second state title. He was a one-time Georgia commit and is someone the Bulldogs are very much trying to add to the 2019 class. Haselwood is the No. 1 overall player in the state of Georgia and the No. 1 wide receiver prospect in the country.
