Georgia Football: TE Depth Chart Review – Sports Illustrated

Georgia Football: TE Depth Chart Review – Sports Illustrated

The University of Georgia has undergone quite a lot of turnover during this offseason, with the offense bearing the brunt of those losses. Four offensive linemen from last season, gone. The starting running back and quarterback, gone. Lawrence Cager, gone. 
However, no position — apart from quarterback obviously — has lost more of a percentage of production from a year ago than Tight End. Charlie Woerner and Eli Wolf accounted for all but one of the receptions from the tight end position in 2019.
The good news for Georgia fans, however, they’ve changed offenses and they sure have changed athletic profiles at the position heading into 2020. Today, we take a look at the three tight ends that will be in the mix this fall.
On roster
John Fitzpatrick
Headed into his redshirt sophomore year, Fitzpatrick was probably looking towards the 2020 season as his potential break out year. At 6’6, 230 pounds he’s the prototypical end of the line tight end, something that though was extremely valuable in prior installments of the Georgia offense, may no longer be a required trait. 
Fitzpatrick is cut from the same physical build as a guy like Charlie Woerner. He’s big and physical and could be in store for early playing time along with our next tight end, as Darnell Washington gets acquainted with life in college. 
Tre’ McKitty
Since the days of Orson Charles running amuck in opponent’s defensive backfield, Georgia hasn’t had an athlete at the Tight End position that can do damage after the catch. Sure, they’ve had pass catchers, but for almost a decade they’ve gone without a player in the middle of the field that can do damage carrying the football.

Northwest Georgia Regional Commission hears from regional census specialist


Northwest Georgia Regional Commission hears from regional census specialist

Mandy Maloney, a partnership specialist with the U.S. Census Bureau’s Atlanta Regional Census Center, listed off Thursday some of the various things the census being conducted this year will impact: government representation, district determinations, state and federal funding, grant considerations, money for schools and roads.

“There are a billion ways those numbers are used. But you guys know how important it is,” Maloney said while speaking to the monthly meeting of the Northwest Georgia Regional Commission in Calhoun.

She emphasized the importance of not only participating in the census, a resident count that only happens every 10 years, but of encouraging everyone else to make sure they get counted as well, regardless of status. She noted that in Floyd County, where she lives, about 74 percent of residents filled out and mailed the census form last time around. But that meant about 26 percent of the residents there had to be visited by workers, she said, and it’s hard to know if you accurately counted everyone.

What isn’t hard to know is the importance of participating in the census.

“Because they equal money and power. That’s really what the census is about,” Maloney said. “Just know that every single person equals dollars left of the table when they’re not counted.”
