WATCH: Georgia K Rodrigo Blankenship reveals big news after win over Notre Dame
It’s safe to say Georgia K Rodrigo Blankenship will remember this week for a long time.
After making two of his three field goal attempts and both of his extra points in the Bulldogs’ huge 20-19 road win over Notre Dame on Saturday night, the sophomore kicker revealed more good news to his teammates in the postgame locker room.
Blankenship told his teammates that coach Kirby Smart had called him into his office on Friday to award him a scholarship. As you can see in the video below, Blankenship’s teammates were thrilled to hear that news:

Blankenship made 14 of his 18 field goals while earning Freshman All-America honors last year and is already 3-for-4 this year.
He’s an important part of what the Bulldogs do (as Saturday night’s win proved) and it’s great to see a young man rewarded for his hard work.
