Breakout receiver Marcus Rosemy-Jacksaint just wants to win

After suffering a season ending injury on a touchdown catch his freshman year, Marcus Rosemy-Jacksaint is on fire in what is now his third season with the Georgia Bulldogs.

The Florida native has made himself at home in Athens putting up career numbers in his breakout season. So far this year he’s caught 18 passes for 212 yards and one touchdown, his first since his injury. With those numbers Rosemy-Jacksaint is the fifth most productive receiver on the team, and is often looked to for crucial plays. 

And while his numbers may not line up with what some may expect from an “elite receiver,” he’s doing everything you aren’t watching too. On top of just being a receiver, he’s getting people open, being a physical blocker and acting as a vocal leader on the team.





“I just wanna win at the end of the day. Whatever I can do to help put my team in the position to win, that’s what I want to do,” he said. 

Although one of his biggest plays as a freshman was that touchdown and injury against Florida in 2020, it took all three years of development for Rosemy-Jacksaint to get where he is today. Coach Kirby Smart told us earlier in the week that one thing that Georgia does to promote physical toughness is hitting in practice. Something Roosemy-Jacksaint is all too familiar with.

Rosemy-Jacksaint told us that as a freshman in practice he ran an over route, wasn’t looking and got a “little wake-up call” from safety Richard LeCounte. It’s a moment the two sit back and laugh at now, but it’s instances like those that build these players and in turn this team.





“Physical toughness” is something Smart preached to the team after the victory against Tennessee, and wideout Marcus Rosemy-Jacksaint is a testament to that. It takes a tough guy to endure that injury and wait three years to finally have his moment.

He’s one of many stories on this team and a testament to the identity of the 2022 Georgia Bulldogs: mentally and physically tough.
