ATHENS — The Georgia football team completed the fifth of its 15 spring practices, working out for over two hours on the Woodruff Practice Fields here on Thursday afternoon.

The Bulldogs will return to the practice field for their sixth workout this Saturday morning.


Today’s practice helped to kick off Georgia’s annual UGA Coaches Clinic, a three-day gathering that features presentations from coaches representing all levels of the industry.  It represents a unique opportunity for coaches at the middle school and high school level to socialize and share ideas with college and NFL coaches.


Georgia culminates the spring practice period with its annual G-Day intrasquad game on Saturday, April 22.  Kickoff is scheduled for 2:00 p.m. at Sanford Stadium.  Admission is free.


UGA will use the G-Day to implement the SEC’s Clear Bag Policy, which will go into effect at all SEC venues beginning this fall.  The policy will also be in effect, beginning in the 2017-18 competition year, at all of UGA’s ticketed sports venues:  Sanford Stadium, Stegeman Coliseum (men’s & women’s basketball, gymnastics) and Foley Field (baseball).  More information on the SEC Clear Bag Policy can be found at
