7. What's your favorite vacation spot? I really haven’t had a chance to take a vacation anywhere. I was always tied up with some type of sporting activity as a child.

9. Who inspires you the most? I never had a father figure so I think I would have to say that I’m most inspired by the couple of godfathers God sent my way in Terry Anthony, Evans Smith, LaShawn Troutman, and Anthony Gaines to name a few. My son also inspires me to be successful so that he will have a better life than I had.

Nothing, God made me this way for a reason and I’m content with myself.

16. Why did you choose UGA? UGA was something new and I had a really close relationship with my recruiter, Kirby Smart. He sold the program and not once did he lie to me about anything. Coach Richt was the guy I was looking for in a coach. He looks after his players like they’re his own sons. Coach Eason was a guy I heard about from multiple people that had played for him and I just wanted to play for him too.

  1. Wonderful blog, I really enjoyed reading it. Even though I already knew all the answers. Keep up the good work!!!! :-)

  2. So if Halle Berry ever visits Athens we can expect Joe and Tony to go at it pretty good. Lord help us if she is in the stands out in Stillwater!

  3. if you decide to come visit amelia island you will not be disappointed, its always a blast here.

  4. Keep em coming Jeff. The Q&A sessions are really interesting. Even though I live in Florida, I didn't know that much about the south Florida guys on the team. I'm happy that ya'll are hanging out together so ya'll don't get too homesick.

  5. Jeff-We all want to see more on the players, but how about a history and update on Hamilton Holmes? He was the first African-American male at UGA and was recruited away to Emory Medical School in his junior year. When I was at UGA, the first African-American football player came out for football under Dooley. He didn't make first team, but he received the largest trophy I have ever seen his sophomore year. The trophy was for the highest academic average of any freshman athlete the previous year(1968) and it was 6' tall. Sorry I forgot his name. He dropped off the team according to a story in The Red and Black and I quote approximately; "...because I wasn't good enough athletically" and he didn't want to take up space on the team for their sake. There are some great and inspiring stories from the UGA annals and I hope you find a few.
    A little history mixed in with the team blog would seem suitable, but you are onto what we desire most...we want to know about our Dawgs.

    Rah, Rah, Ree! Kick'um in the knee!
    Rah, Rah, Rass! Kick'um in the other knee!
    Go Dawgs!!

  6. Is is just me or are Halle Berry and Gabrielle Union on every player's list? Not that I fault them.

  8. Jeff,
    good luck with your blog and hope you can realize your dreams of being in the media. Hope you have a long career in the NFL first.
    go Dawgs!!!!
