Player Countdown to Kickoff - No. 64
Spring Review: This spring was a lot different with much better results for Lee compared to when he came to Georgia as an early enrollee a year ago. Searels cross-trained the former Buford standout between tackle and guard, eventually letting the redshirt freshman settle in at left guard where he current backs up starter Cordy Glenn.
Fall Preview: It appears that Lee will get his share of snaps as part of the second-team rotation for Georgia. Most likely, that time will come at guard, but Lee could serve in a pinch at right tackle as well as center, where he worked briefly a season ago.
Spring Review: DeGenova missed all of spring practice while recovering from shoulder surgery and hopes to be back at some point during preseason, where he will try to find his nitch at outside linebacker.
Fall Preview: A valuable member of the Scout Team, DeGenova only appeared in one game, that coming in the Bulldogs' Independance Bowl victory over Texas A&M. He's made one career tackle, that coming against Central Michigan in 2008.
A pair of linemen wear number 64 for Georgia and one is on offense and one on defense. Dallas Lee, who redshirted last season plays on the offensive line and Matthew DeGenova is a walk-on defensive end who made a tackle against Central Michigan two seasons ago. The ironic thing is that DeGenova's hometown of Kenner, Louisiana is closer to Dallas, Texas than Dallas Lee's hometown of Buford, but I guess Dallas Lee's home is closer to Dallas, Georgia than DeGenova's.
Peter Anderson was a star 64 in the 80's. Forget Knowshon Moreno, as Anderson might be the best Bulldog ever from New Jersey… well don't forget Knowshon, I will mention him against in about 40 days from now if not before. After playing as a freshman in 1981, he redshirted in 1982 because of the abundance of offensive lineman. By the time he finished his Georgia career he had played all five offensive line positions and was named All-American in 1985. He was also named a permanent captain halfway through a season instead of after the season which was something coach Vince Dooley never did before.
Kregg Lumpkin had some bright moments as a Georgia Bulldog. One of those moments happened against Georgia Tech in 2003. Kregg had both a rushing touchdown and a receiving touchdown. Although the number is not spectacular he did end up with 64 rushing yards, but more importantly for Dawg fans was that Georgia won 34 to 17.
Years earlier in 1992 there was another Bulldog running back that had a big game. Garrison Hearst in a game against Auburn had a rushing touchdown and a receiving touchdown. The receiving touchdown went for 64 yards. It was the longest reception of his career, and the Dawg won 14 to 10.
1964 was also the first season that Georgia was led by their most successful football coach of all time. Vince Dooley's first game as the main man was a 31 to 3 loss to Alabama, but his first victory was in game number two against Vanderbilt by the score of 7 to 0. Coach would have 200 more wins that would follow.
1964 - Georgia Record: 7-3-1
