UGA hopes big play Gamble will improve pass rush

By Robert Hydrick - bio | email

ATHENS, GA (WALB) - The one area Georgia coaches knows needs improving on the football team is rushing the quarterback.

The Bulldogs last season did not get the push on the quarterback from the defensive end position as they have had in previous seasons.

Georgia is hoping a healthy Rod Battle and promising young players like Demarcus Dobbs can provide punch at the position this season.

The coaching staff also believe linebacker Darryl Gamble from Bainbridge can help.

Gamble is expected to line up on the defensive line in passing situations to rush the quarterback.

Gamble is not as big as the average SEC defensive linemen but he is just as strong and that is one weapon he will use to his advantage.

Darryl Gamble said. "I guess because I am little more slender than the other guys. I guess they underestimate my strength. I might do a little speed and then bull rush so I catch them off balance."

Georgia continues their daily practice preparations for their September 5th season opener at 11th ranked Oklahoma State.
