Since 1995 - Insightful commentary on the Georgia Bulldogs

Post Occasionally there is good news this time of year

Monday August 21, 2006

UGASports.com reported from the practice field this afternoon that Mark Richt has continued an unofficial tradition by rewarding a walk-on with an “extra” scholarship. NCAA rules limit the Dawgs to 85 scholarships, and they entered camp with 84 scholarship players this year.

Richt announced today that junior running back Jason Johnson has earned the remaining scholarship.

“Johnson has been honored with a scholarship and it was very well earned by him,” said Richt. “We know he can play tailback, he can play fullback, he can play special teams, and he is just a very productive guy. Johnson is a hard worker and it is kind of a joy to give that aid to him. He has done extremely well as a student and I am really happy for J.J.”
