Year Two

Jeremy Pruitt explains that his coaching style and skill comes from his high school experiences at Plainview High School, Fort Payne High School and Hoover High School in Alabama.

In fact, all four defensive coaches have a high school background and that’s probably not a coincidence.

“For us we’ve tried to create a teaching progression for our guys to learn.” Pruitt told Connor Riley of “And for us on the defensive side, that goes back to our high school background. The four coaches on the defensive side, we all started in high school. I think that helps us when it comes to teaching young guys.”

In year two with the Georgia program, Pruitt combines the wisdom gained at previous coaching stops with the wisdom of working at Georgia.

Pruitt has now been through the Georgia schedule. He has been to Jacksonville wearing red and black. He’s faced Auburn as a Bulldog.

Pruitt has faced a hungry Steve Spurrier early in the season and he has now faced Paul Johnson not just as an opponent, but as an arch rival.

It’s year two for Jeremy Pruitt and the Georgia defense. Batter the Bulldogs returning talent with physical condition, familiarity, versatility, key freshman, and wisdom and Georgia could fry up the best defense in the SEC.
