20 Bulldog players will accompany Mark Richt to Honduras in May on a five-day mission trip. “Defensive end Rod Battle, offensive linemen Chris Davis and Ben Jones, punter Brian Mimbs and running back Richard Samuel are among players expected to make the trip,” according to the ABH.
Thank goodness the trip passes the compliance smell test. “It’s not like they’re going on some plush trip,” Richt said in the understatement of the year.
In other good works news, Bulldog signee Christian Robinson spent his spring break doing mission work in Africa for the second straight year. You might remember that he received his UGA offer while he was on last year’s trip. UGASports.com has a great (free) feature with Robinson about his 2008 trip.
Then there’s this. Hopefully this guy can get CBS:
“The cool thing about being a Georgia player was that I found a Dawg’s fan while we were visiting a church there, and he started gong nuts when he found out I was a future Dawg. So Georgia is an international team.”
