News came out of Athens on Tuesday that Georgia has hired on Norcross native Ronnie Letson to be their new Director of Player Personnel for the program. Letson comes to the Georgia program after spending last sea- son with the Alabama Crimson Tide program. Since the 2013 season wrapped up for Alabama, Letson had left the program to take over as a wide receivers coach at Samford University. Prior to his brief stint at Samford, he served as an offensive assistant for Nick Saban’s program.

In addition to the last two stops of the career, Letson was the offensive coordinator at Jacksonville State University from 2014 until 2012. He’s also been on staff as a grad assistant with his alma mater, Ole Miss, from 2003 to 2004. Letson is the third newest member of the Georgia football staff with ties to the Alabama program. The others are defensive coordinator Jeremy Pruitt and Sam linebacker/Star position coach Kevin Sherrer. Both of those coaches joined up with Saban at different times as the program’s Director of Player Development.


As the calendar soon changes to July, it is just another great reminder that college football is on the horizon. This means there are just two months before kickoff in Sanford Stadium between Clemson and Georgia. Georgia’s players have been working out throughout the entire month of June after get-ting May off to finish up the spring semester. The next mile marker on our road to the 2014 Georgia Bulldogs football season is SEC Media Days coming up in the middle of July, over in Birmingham. Then a little over a couple weeks later the Dawgs will begin fall camp. Kickoff for the Georgia football season is August 30.

Depending on who you read in preparation for the season, some are predicting the Bulldogs to win the SEC East. However, some publications are picking them to be the runner-up behind South Carolina. That battle for the East could be decided when UGA heads to Columbia to take on the Gamecocks in Week 2.

The Georgia baseball team’s season end-ed earlier in the spring in the SEC tournament. That said, 18 players are currently playing in summer leagues around the country.Of those players who are playing in leagues, outfielder Stephen Wrenn and rising senior in-fielder/outfielder Hunter Cole are both playing in the prestigious Cape Cod Summer League in Massachusetts.
