I asked Mike Bobo after Georgia’s football practice Thursday to name an offensive player who’s had a great spring.
Bobo, the offensive coordinator, didn’t hesitate to single out . . . left guard Cordy Glenn.
So it was no surprise that when Georgia announced its annual spring football awards this morning, Glenn was tabbed as the offense’s MVP.
“I’d say Cordy Glenn has had an outstanding spring,” Bobo said Thursday. “Just outstanding, the way he’s worked, the way he’s competed.
“He’s had the right mindset every day: ‘I’m coming out to try to get better.’ He’s got tremendous talent, but just to see the improvement in him, the knowledge of what we’re doing. . . .
“Early on, obviously as a freshman, he had to depend on a lot of guys next to him to help him out. Now he pretty much knows what we’re doing, and he’s able to execute and then use his God-given ability to dominate. And that’s what kind of player we think he can be.”
Mark Richt this morning announced the full list of annual spring football awards:
The Coffee County Hustle Award (given to the players showing the most desire during spring drills): tailback Washaun Ealey and defensive linemen Demarcus Dobbs and DeAngelo Tyson.
MVP (offense): Glenn.
MVP (defense): outside linebacker Justin Houston.
True Grit Award (offense): fullback Shaun Chapas.
True Grit Award (defense): linebacker Akeem Dent.
Most Improved player (offense): tailback Carlton Thomas.
Most improved player (defense): cornerbacks Vance Cuff and Brandon Boykin.
Outstanding walk-ons (offense): fullbacks Cameron Allen and Kevin Lanier.
Outstanding walk-on (defense): outside linebacker Reuben Faloughi.
And another bit of good news about Faloughi: Richt said he has been awarded a scholarship.
Faloughi attended Evans High School (near Augusta) and turned down Division I-AA scholarship offers to walk on at Georgia.
“We knew he was a very good player out of high school,” Richt said earlier this week. “We knew he had other opportunities coming out of high school, but he really wanted to come to Georgia and prove he could do it. He’s doing very well.”
