Senior defensive lineman David Marshall met with the media on Monday during player interviews and talked about UGA’s upcoming game versus Texas A&M, emotions surrounding Senior Day, and discussed some run defense.
Marshall says the team is focused on Texas A&M right now even though the Bulldogs claimed the SEC Eastern Division title and a trip to the SEC Championship game with their 21-14 win over Auburn this past Saturday.
“We’re just worrying about Texas A&M now. We ain’t worried about the past,” said Marshall. “We’re just worrying about taking on Texas A&M and Georgia Tech.”
On what has led to the improvement in the run defense…
“We just worked on it the whole year, the whole spring, during fall camp. It improved with that and we have a lot of talent on the defensive line. There’s just so much talent on the defensive line this year. We worked really hard on it so it would make an impact in the game.”
On what Coach Dan Lanning brought to the run defense side of things…
“He brought a lot, puts a lot of pressure on the defense. He wants more tackles for loss, more sacks, more interceptions, so we just practice on that the whole season. We prove in the game when we can stop the run and stuff.”
