ATHENS – The “Boss” of Georgia’s offensive line was named offensive lineman of the week on Monday.
David Andrews, who has been nicknamed “Boss” since his youth football days in Atlanta, played like a man in charge in Georgia’s 38-0 win over Auburn this past Saturday. Andrews, a 6-foot-2, 295-pound sophomore from Johns Creek, graded out 88 percent and recorded six “dominator” blocks and three knockdowns. He anchored a line that helped the Bulldogs roll up 497 yards against the Tigers and limited them to only one sack of quarterback Aaron Murray.
Murray passed for 208 yards and three touchdowns and tailbacks Todd Gurley and Keith Marshall each rushed for more than 100 yards in the win, which clinched the SEC Eastern Division title. Much of Andrews’ good work came against fellow Georgians Jeff Whitaker and Gabe Wright.
Andrews is a first-year starter who was replacing four-year starter Ben Jones on Georgia’s offensive line.
