Sony Michel on Georgia RBs: 'We're not really into the personal accolades'
Georgia’s backfield is loaded with talented runners, from seniors Sony Michel and Nick Chubb to true freshman D’Andre Swift.
With so many stars to get the ball to, none of the running backs are being used as much as they could be. However, that hasn’t been a problem for the Bulldogs this year.
On Monday, Michel said the Georgia backs aren’t worried about personal statistics, and are simply happy that the team is 9-0 and playing well (via 247Sports):
“Me personally, and I think I can speak for the rest of the backs on the team, we‘re not really into the personal accolades, those kind of things just come,” Michel said. “So, sharing the load, being able to have other guys in there to challenge you, and push you, is the ultimate goal. And winning games. It’s fun when you’re winning games and not worried about rushing for such-and-such amount of yards and such-and-such touchdowns, the ultimate goal is to win games. That’s what all the guys, and myself included, are here for.”
Brian Herrien and Elijah Holyfield are also key parts of the Georgia backfield and play important roles for the Bulldogs.
With so many options, all five backs are fresh heading into the home stretch. That’s a scary thought for Georgia’s future opponents.
