The first guy who did the most for Georgia football has to be starting running back Zamir White. He saw just four carries on the game but led the team.
White earned 83 yards on those four touches, averaging 20.8 yards a touch. He had a 40-yard touchdown run, which helped his numbers. White also had a catch for two yards to add to his day.
Still, he was someone Charleston Southern couldn’t contain, and despite four touches, White did a ton with those.
That touchdown run gave Georgia a 21-0 lead and set into motion of putting in the backups.
White continues to get stronger as the season progresses, which will only benefit the Dawgs down the stretch. Between him and his partner in crime fellow starting running back James Cook, these two can handle Georgia’s running responsibilities.
When White and Cook both decided to come back for one more season, it was such a sigh of relief, and it paid off as they’ve stayed healthy, which keeps boosting their draft stocks.
If White can keep producing numbers, an NFL team will get one of the steals of the draft because this young man has everything it takes to be a starter now that he is healthy and trusts himself again. Georgia needs to keep seeing this tenacious running in the next couple of games because they need that explosiveness to boost the offense to another level.
