ATHENS — Mother’s Day Weekend doesn’t have any overlap with football season, but that doesn’t mean any time off for football moms.
Ali Daniels and Erika LeCounte, the mothers of Georgia quarterback JT Daniels and former UGA safety Richard LeConte, put in some overtime at the request of DawgNation on Friday night.
It was the first-ever Ingles Mother’s Day Special, and the moms were clutch!
The stories told explained how JT Daniels and Richard LeCounte overcame adversity to put themselves in their exciting and promising positions entering next season.
Daniels suffered a torn ACL injury at USC after a disappointing freshman season that Ali Daniels explained was probably the hardest season of JT’s life — even harder than last season.
Ali Daniels shared how she felt JT Daniels dealt with not playing, and her thoughts on how Kirby Smart managed him.
Erika LeCounte, meanwhile, revealed how UGA responded to her son’s frightening motorcycle crash, and the difference it has made in Richard’s life as he embarks on an NFL career in Cleveland.
