Records are made to be broken.
Former Georgia great defensive end David Pollack’s sack record is in jeopardy of being broken by stud linebacker Jarvis Jones. Pollack registered 14 in 2002, setting a single-season record for the Bulldogs.
Jones currently has 12.5 sacks, only needing two to etch his name above Pollack’s.
“Just to be even within reaching that sack record here at the University of Georgia, so many great players have come and did so much for this school, it’s a great accomplishment for me,” Jones said. “If I get it, I’m going to tell David thanks. It would be wonderful, man.”
To look at what Jones has accomplished in just two seasons for Georgia is nothing short of spectacular. And he sat out two full games this season. He’s notched 26 sacks in two seasons, good for fifth all-time on the Georgia list, compared to Pollack’s 36 in four seasons. Pollack is fourth on the SEC career sack list.
Jones comes to play on the biggest stages, too. Just look at what he’s done against Florida the last two seasons – five sacks and three forced fumbles – simply incredible. And he’s done it with class, too, after being told by USC he couldn’t play football for them because of a neck injury.
