Post Battle the latest Dawg All-American safety

Wednesday December 13, 2006

With the news that Tra Battle has been named third-team AP All-American, Georgia has now produced an All-American safety in each of the past four seasons (and hopefully defensive backfield recruits are paying attention). Battle contributed right out of the gate as a redshirt freshman when he started the 2003 season opener at Clemson. Everyone expected him to give way to some higher-regarded scholarship players, but Battle became a two-year starter and cemented his All-American status with a three-interception game at Auburn. Not bad for a walk-on. Congrats, Tra! Congratulations also to DE Quentin Moses for joining Battle on the third team.

  • Tra never was redshirted. Started his true freshman year. Shows you what heart and soul can do for you if you are willing to pay the price. Size and speed is not everthing. He has what I call Friday night and Saturday afternoon speed! Thanks for 4 great years Tra the folks in Forsyth are proud of you! Go MP Bulldogs and UGA Dawgs!
