UGA Fall Practice: David Andrews Much Improved From Spring

David Andrews hold on the center position looked tenuous at best during the spring but he has gone a long way to secure the starting job early in fall camp. It certainly has to help that Andrews has the support of starting quarterback Aaron Murray.

"I'm positive it's him," quarterback Aaron Murray said. "He's done a great job all summer of working hard. We go out there, and him and I are working on calls. He knows everything we're doing, he knows the calls, and he's only going to get better these next few weeks and into the season. So I have complete confidence in what he can do."

Going against the likes of nose tackles Kwame Geathers and John Jenkins daily in practice has led Andrews to focus on his technique and has thus improved his approach. He certainly can't overpower players like Geathers and Jenkins so he is turning to solid fundamentals to move them where he needs them to go.

During the spring it looked like the Bulldogs might have to move starting guard Chris Burnette to center if Andrews couldn't handle the position. Now it looks like they have their man at center and can focus on other areas of concern.
