Richt visits Heard County..


Recommended Posts

Georgia coach Mark Richt and recruiting coordinator Rodney Garner spent two hours in Heard County on Monday signing autographs, posing for pictures and evaluating the health of running back Dontavius Jackson.

Jackson, who suffered a season-ending wrist injury in Heard County s season opener in September, plans to enroll at Georgia in January. He is on pace to gain permission from his physician to participate in spring practice with the Bulldogs.

Dontavius got his cast off and has started his rehabilitation, Heard County coach Tim Barron said. They don t want him to do any squeezing right now.

He goes back to the doctor on Dec. 28. They should be ready then to release him to be more aggressive with the therapy. And as soon as he gets to Georgia, they ll really start doing more physical therapy.

Barron said Jackson s injury was diagnosed as a spiral fracture, where the ligament in the wrist tears away from the bone.

Everything is probably healed up fine right now, Barron said. The Georgia coaches feel like he ll be freed up and released to go through spring practice.

Richt was a big hit with the folks in Franklin.

People were excited to see him, Barron said. We re a small town. So anytime a big name like that comes here, it s good for the community.
