Who’s had a great spring? Cordy Glenn, Bobo answers (with list of spring award winners)

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.”

Funny….none of the QBs mentioned in these awards….you would think that with the numbers Murray and Metz have been putting up, one may get an award. But then again, that might as well tip the cap as to who the starter will be.

If they just showed up that would be an improvement.

Great news. I think our o-line will be outstanding if no injuries and if Trinton gets back its going to be even better. Carlton Thomas is great news too as most improved player.

Also Justin Houston might be the most athletic player on earth. S00000 excited to see him play LB.

It’s good to see that the UGA will be adding more awards to their trophy case. That pre-season national championship trophy was getting lonely.

Those dance moves seemed to work pretty well for us in 2007. Maybe we should have a Dance revolution in your endzone this year. We’re 1-0 against ya’ll when we have done it. Oh and 46-39-2!

Looking forward to Saturday afternoon in the Classic City!!

The gelling of the O line will make for a good transition for a new QB & the running game should take much pressure off the QB to have to do “too much”..

Excited to see the new D!!

Go Dawgs!!

Glenn being the MVP of the spring is very good news. With Glenn to rally around maybe the potential of this O line will really shine. They should have been our highlight last season. All the potential there to be overwhelming and let UGA run the ball like we all remember in the good days of Dawg football.

First time I saw Cordy Glenn play I knew he would be a beast. He will be a first team All SEC player before he plays in the NFL.

Jackson was the peacemaker in Athens’ recent taxi incident, I guess that’s was the reason he was out at 2am during spring workouts.

Well, Dontavious may have been the peacemaker, but he is from Heard County…the same place the suspects are from…If you are going to invite your buddies to hang with you during the weekend, make sure they bring their Pitbull collars with them so they can be chained outside the dorm…they are not allowed out with you anymore if they are uncontrollable…Dontavious is lucky to have avoided trouble here…

Faloughi is a great story. I think it’s awesome that a lineman (Glenn) got O-MVP. I think it’s even more awesome that Ealey, the heir apparent to “star player” status, got a hustle award. Throw in a fullback with true grit and some hustling improving Defensive guys who are not resting on any laurels, and I am liking the attitude coming out of this spring a whole lot. BTW, this is pretty much the answer to the Junkyard Blawg, as well. I want to see hustle and desire. I want to hear about hustle and effort and desire. Go dawgs! I haven’t got this kind of feeling from a team in about four seasons.

There’s a fight a night in Athens bars and cabs. It only makes the paper if it’s a football player or fraternity pledge. That being said, what kind of coward slaps a woman from behind? If I was the judge, I’d put them in jail for five years with that question written on the wall and have them report back to me with an answer.

Favors turning pro after his freshman year shows how little Tech players think of Hewitt’s future. Favors is not ready for the pros and won’t go in the 1st round but he sees no future at Tech. To bad he didn’t make a wiser decision and become a Dawg with a future.

Go Dawgs. I feel optimistic about the coaching changes on defense making an impact for UGA on both sides of the ball by improving the competitive/winning culture. Grantham shows up hungry, and Richt wants to prove his mettle to a long-time NFL guy. Should be a healthy combo that gets the players into a better state of mind this year.
