OL Tyler Catalina doesn't regret decision to transfer to Georgia
After playing for three years at Rhode Island, an FCS school, OL Tyler Catalina decided to head south to play for the Georgia Bulldogs as a graduate transfer.
Though the season hasn’t gone according to plan and the Bulldogs’ offensive line has struggled at times, Catalina told Macon.com that he has no regrets with his decision:
“It seems like we’ve been the scapegoats for quite some time,” Catalina said with a smile. “It’s been a tremendous experience all the way through. I wouldn’t trade it for anything.”
Catalina said he has enjoyed competing against some of the nation’s best defenses on a weekly basis:
“That was the whole reason I came here, to compete against the best talent in the country and prove myself worthy of playing at the next level,” Catalina said.
The 5-4 Bulldogs are still alive in the SEC East, though they’re hanging by a thread at the moment.
If Catalina and his teammates on the offensive line can get the running game going and pull off a major upset against Auburn this weekend, Georgia may have a chance to go to the SEC Championship Game.
