Fifth-year senior defensive lineman Michael Barnett has been at the University of Georgia since 2015 and has played a lot of football for the Bulldogs during his time in Athens. That experience is invaluable, and Barnett talks about his role on defense as a veteran and how he helps the younger players on the team in his Tuesday post-practice interview.

On his role with the defense…

“I feel like I just try to help the young guys get on pace with the plays and understand the playbook. My role is just to do whatever the team needs and whatever coach wants.”

On being a veteran on the team…

“It has been such a learning experience with the coaching changes to truly understand the game and the playbook.”

On the defensive line…

“I feel like every day we try to execute and get better. We really work on our technique and we don’t try to rush into making we plays. We really want to be a part of this system and really hone into everything we do. The more we do that the more things fall into place. We’ve done a lot more film study this year and I think we’re better for it but we need to maintain consistency.”
