By Joe Vitale:

At the annual G-Day game Saturday, a record crowd of 93,000 plus, saw the Georgia Bulldogs Black team beat the Red squad 34-14.

On a glorious, sun-splashed late afternoon in Athens, the players put on quite a show but the real star of the game was the DawgNation faithful, who came out in droves to Sanford Stadium and witness Kirby Smart’s coaching debut.

On offense, we give a Dawg Bone to the sensational freshman quarterback Jacob Eason, who passed for 244 yards and a touchdown. In addition, Eason seemed to have a presence on the field and in the huddle. He made good decisions, checked down to open secondary receivers and threw the ball away when necessary. The Lake Stevens, Washington standout was all that was advertised….and more.

Sophomore wide receiver Jayson Stanley is awarded the second offensive Dawg Bone. After ACL surgery during his senior year at Creekside, Stanley is 100% and has a good grasp of the offense. He’s the big receiver Georgia needs to complement fellow sophomore receiver Terry Godwin. He had four receptions for 87 yards and made the big plays. Stanley also excelled at downfield blocking and creating separation from his defender.

On defense, sophomore outside linebacker D’Andre Walker had a monster day with seven tackles, four sacks and four tackles for a loss. The former Langston Hughes Parade All-American appears primed for a breakout 2016 season.
