Senior tight end Jeb Blazevich talked with the media on Wednesday about where this team is at after four games. He mentioned about tapping into more potential that they have and how the team is not quite there yet. However, he said that the culture of this team is to be there to work each and every day and that he felt like this team has completely bought into that mindset.
Blazevich talked about the culture of the team and how regardless of your status on the team, whether you are on scholarship or a walk-on, your position on the depth chart, or whether you are on scout team or not, the guys are here to work. He mentioned how it takes special guys with a lot of character and integrity to step up and be there every single down and play to help the guys who start improve.
The fortitude that it takes to stay mentally engaged. It’s easy to quit. Majority of people quit,” Blazevich said. “But it takes somebody with a lot of character and a lot of integrity to say I’m here to work and each and everyday work and that’s becoming the culture of this team regardless of where you are on the depth chart, scout team or not, scholarship or walk on, we’re here to work. I think it’s showing on our scout teams, those guys are getting pulled over to the other field to practice with the defense. They are giving us great looks, so we have something better to work against so that culture really helping us around here.”
The attitude of the entire team seems to have shifted since the start of camp and even last year. Players have bought into head coach Kirby Smart’s process and the effort seems to be paying off.
