“As a football coach, you spend so much time with these guys. They become part of your family, man. You grow to appreciate them not only as athletes, but most importantly as people. It is really an amazing journey. We get to be a part of their lives at some  really important times of their lives, some real developmental times in their lives.”

He had the pleasure of coaching former UGA kicker Rodrigo Blankenship and Florida defensive lineman Jabari Zuniga, who are poised to be selected in this week’s NFL Draft.
