Ole Miss vs. Georgia: Zander Ogletree shined in his chance against Florida

Sam Greenwood

With two fullbacks injured, Ogletree was called upon against Gators. He delivered.

Georgia fullback Zander Ogletree had by far the most important game of his career against Florida, and it has only whetted his appetite to play more. According to the Athens Banner-Herald, Ogletree took "about thirty" snaps against the Gators. He caught two passes for 13 yards. With backup fullback Quayvon Hicks out with a concussion, Ogletree saw action after starter Merritt Hall sprained his ankle. Prior to that he hadn't played a down this season, and had talked to the Georgia coaching staff about redshirting.

"I was always ready," Ogletree said. "I just wait until my name gets called or my number gets called."

Georgia coach Mark Right seemed pleased with Ogletree's effort.

"He was very physical in his run blocking," Richt said. "He didn’t seem to have many mental errors at all. I don’t even know if he had a missed assignment."

Hall's status remains unclear for Georgia's game against Ole Miss this Saturday. If he remains out, Ogletree could see more time against the Rebels. He would certainly relish the opportunity.

"Hopefully, I’ll still be in the mix," he said. "I’m ready for it. I’m looking forward to Saturday."
