10. George Pickens makes a return at the right moment
After 10 long months, Georgia football wide receiver George Pickens is back on the field. The Dawgs put the junior in a few times against Georgia Tech, and the fans loved it. Twitter and social media went nuts talking about how Pickens was back.
He got a massive cheer when he stepped on the field, and that had to feel good after being on the sidelines all season.
Pickens finished the day with one catch for five yards, but that is a big win for having someone like him back in the rotation. His return is coming at the right moment for Georgia because Pickens is a game-changing wideout who can make explosive plays. Teams know when he is on the field because he is that talented.
While there have been guys who stepped up in his absence, having a guy like Pickens for the deep balls is always a good feeling. This week seemed to be about implementing him back in slowly to see what he could do. Pickens looked ready to go and hungry to be out there.
The return of Georiga’s top wide receiver could be a big advantage for the Dawgs moving forward into this postseason, so welcome back Pickens, we can’t wait to see what you do.
