Watch: D’Andre Swift, Demetris Robertson and Jordan Davis Meet The Press

On Georgia’s mindset and how it allows for great leaders and success..

“We’ve got some great leaders on this team like Jake (Fromm) and Andrew Thomas, who do a great job for this team. Everyone just tries to reach excellence. We try to be perfect knowing we’re never going to be perfect. We always want to play to the Georgia standard and understand that everyone on the team wants to see each other win. We have the mentality that there’s always something to get better at— we play and go against Georgia each day in practice. We’re going against the best defense every day in practice; we’re going against the best offense every day in practice. So, if we take that mentality into every day, we’ll be fine.”

On what it means to play at home in Sanford Stadium …

“It’s amazing. We’ve got the most loyal fans. It felt like a home game on Saturday (at Vanderbilt). Sanford Stadium, though, it’s like no other. It’s so loud, and our fans are great. My first game I was really nervous, but I was really excited. I was just happy all my hard work had paid off, and I knew it was the start of something bigger.”

On Brian Herrien [RB, Sr.] getting to start/if it was a cool moment for Swift…

“That was a cool moment. Everyone wants to see each other win no matter who is starting. Everyone is going to get the amount of touches needed to win the game. So, we just go into games according to the game plan we have that game knowing we just want to see each other win.”

On what preparation looks like for Murray State as of now…

“We’ve got to start with today. This week is important because it’s the next game. So, we’ve got to start with practice today, looking at and working on everything we messed up on Saturday.”

On his decision to come closer to home …

“To be closer to my family. My family needed me here, so I chose to come back.”

On what he did in the offseason to get ready …

“I had to get the playbook and learn the offense. Coach (James) Coley is the new coordinator now and I had to learn how he did things.”

#13 Azeez Ojulari | R-Fr. | OLB

On how you feel the team did with pressuring the quarterback and if you could bring that much continued pressure without dialing up as many guys…

“I feel like we have guys on our team that can just put pressure on the quarterback and bring that pressure by winning one-on-one battles.” 

On how competitive the OLB position really is…

“It has been extremely competitive. We are all in there, pushing each other, coming in and getting each other each day and working as hard as we can day-in and day-out.” 

On what you did in the offseason to increase playing time so drastically…

“I really used that ‘Do More’ mentality and continued on that type of grind. Coming in everyday, working hard and focusing on improving one day at a time.” 

On his stamina and continuing to work on that aspect of his game…

“It has been something I have been battling for a while. I try and spend extra time after practice conditioning. I also focus on spending the time to make sure I am eating right, doing the right things, drinking a lot of water and making sure I stay hydrated. It is a long road and the farther into the season we get, the more pressure there is going to be, and I am going to be need to be able to be out there more. Right now, I am working to maintain my stamina.” 

On Murray State …

“Definitely not. Murray State has an extremely respectable game, they are very explosive, scoring 40 or more points in five out of nine games. They have an explosive offense, both running and passing, that we are going to need to stop. They have a very athletic team. I was watching some highlight clips and their running back is extremely explosive. And, not to discredit our offense, but their defense is also explosive so we just need to play all-around a good game. Continue to think about us and what we know how to do and we should be fine.” 

On how you have transformed since you arrived on campus…

“I can feel myself getting stronger, mentally and physically. It is like a 360 change for me since high school. I have learned so much in terms of better technique.”
