UGA Football Preseason: Abry Jones Wants To 'Leave His Mark' At Georgia

Abry Jones gets lost in the shuffle when it comes to recognizing the Georgia Bulldogs defense. He doesn't have stats that would blow anyone away, with just five career sacks going into his senior season. Still, the defensive end says he wants to set records and leave his mark at Georgia before he's gone.

"He's a guy that because of maybe other people getting the press, that he's gotten unnoticed a little bit," Georgia defensive coordinator Todd Grantham said by way of The Telegraph. "But from a coaching standpoint and my standpoint, I understand his value to our team."

Four of Jones' five sacks came last season, in which he started every game for the Dawgs. He also recorded seven tackles for loss in 2011. Grantham describes Jones as a leader by example and a guy who puts in serious work.

This is Jones' last season to leave the kind of impression on the Bulldogs program that he's hoping for, but from the looks of it, he has a decent chance to do that.
