Georgia vs. Florida: Malcolm Mitchell always looking for opportunity

Kevin C. Cox

Malcolm Mitchell is looking to score a touchdown every time he touches the ball. That's what he plans to do against Florida on Saturday.

Once Georgia wide receiver and return specialist Malcolm Mitchell gets the ball in his hands, rarely is there a situation where he doesn't see an opportunity to make a play. That's the kind of athletic skill Mitchell brings to the game. Mix it with his confidence, and Mitchell presents real problems for defenses.

He was switched from cornerback to wide receiver this season and is the Bulldogs' primary kick returner. Against Kentucky, Mitchell had 164 all-purpose yards, which included 103 receiving yards and a career-high nine catches.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution shares the story of Mitchell fielding a kickoff eight yards deep in his end zone in the first half of the Kentucky game, when Kyle Karempelis jumped in front of him with an emphatic stop sign at the goal line, as Mitchell was ready to "take it to the house."

He didn't want to do it, but the sophomore reluctantly took a knee for the touchback. Against Florida this Saturday, with the SEC East on the line, Mitchell is looking for more opportunities.
