UGA sophomore offensive lineman Cade Mays discusses the upcoming SEC Championship Game versus LSU and quarterback Jake Fromm‘s ability to handle adversity and criticism in Monday’s player interviews. Mays also shares his thoughts on freshman wide receiver George Pickens.
What challenges does LSU’s defense present for the Bulldogs’ offense?
“They’re a well-rounded defense. They’ve got a great front seven, a good back and good secondary. They’re very deep on the D-line and linebackers.”
Does the fact that Georgia has gone to the SEC Championship before help going into this year’s game?
“It definitely helps our whole team. We’ve been in big games before, so it’s important we know not to let the moment be bigger than it is and live in the moment. The stadium is packed, and it’s one of the biggest games of the year. Everyone is hype.”
How has Jake Fromm handled the criticism and the “outside noise” this season?
“He’s definitely handled it well. He knows himself, and he’s true to himself. He comes out and works hard every single day, and he doesn’t let anything affect him. He’s focused on what he’s supposed to do.”
