During Monday’s player interviews, senior safety J.R. Reed talks some Dawgs’ defense, the upcoming game versus Auburn, and more.


 On trying to contain a quick receiver like Anthony Schwartz…

“You just got to get people to the ball. With those kind of guys, you have to contain and don’t let him get in open space. We have to tackle and can’t let him get loose.”

On Defensive Coordinator Dan Lanning and how he has emerged as a leader at Georgia…

“Coach Lanning is very relatable to his guys. He’s a player’s coach. He’ll get the guys going. He does a lot of things outside the box to get guys motivated that I wouldn’t even think about.”

On how Coach Lanning gets his guys motivated…

“He finds little stats, like last year we knew Missouri, they ran the ball on us, they had four touchdowns, 182 yards, 5.2 yards a carry. So those are things that engraved in my head while we’re going through practice and so we knew we had to go out there and stop the run. Doing things like that and showing us, basically like going to the doctor, showing us what we need to fix after each game.”

On what stands out to him with this defense…

“We’re just guys that go out there and do their job. It’s not about everyone, it’s not about one single person, it’s about guys going out there, doing their job and guys working hard.”
