July 26, 2014 AUGUSTA, GA-- It wasn't expected by the Bulldogs, nor the opposing defenses. Aquinas product Brendan Douglas was easily one of the bigger surprises on the 2013 Georgia football team. Douglas may be the only one not surprised with his performance.
Yet, there's room for improvement entering year two with the Dawgs. The running back enters camp feeling like an old veteran on the Bulldogs squad.
Douglas delivered on a few key moments in the 2013 season. He's ready to help in anyway possible for 2014.The confident is there, along with the benefit of a year studying the Bulldogs playbook.
"Knowing the offense that's probably the biggest part. Going in to camp last year, I didn't really know the offense, they just kind of threw you in there. This year, I know everything and it will be just a review from last year. I'm only trying to get better everyday," Douglas said.
"Getting better everyday" is the blanket athlete statement. In Douglas' case, he means it. He'll be facing a lot of competition in the Bulldog backfield. Todd Gurley and Keith Marshall are healthy. Newcomers Nick Chubb and Sony Michel will challenge Douglas for playingtime. However, Douglas says he's embracing all challenges in his second season.
