Bulldog Bites: Bennett, Smith and Van Pran discuss UGA football at SEC Media Days
ATLANTA, GA. — Georgia brought three players - Stetson Bennett, Sedrick Van Pran, and Nolan Smith - to speak at SEC Media Days on Wednesday at the College Football Hall of Fame.
Here are some highlights of what they said:
On his decision to stay at Georgia…
“You play the game to play the game, and you play the game to win and compete against the best players. I am able. I am secure enough. I can look in the mirror. I wouldn’t have gotten drafted high last year. So, what was the guarantee that I was going to go start in the NFL last year? Probably really low. For this next year, probably pretty low. This is the best football conference in the country, but if we take care of business, then we take care of business here. I am here to compete against the best players. You have the best players on your team, the best coaches, and the smartest league. I think it is the biggest honor in the world to be able to go out there with a G on the side of my helmet, my name on the badge, looking across at my brothers and knowing we are playing for the University of Georgia, the State of Georgia and for Bulldog fans throughout the country. So really, it wasn’t that tough of a decision. I love football. I love everything, most everything, about it and I love to compete.”
