This week, there is a newcomer as Georgia football linebacker Jamon Dumas-Johnson earns his first helmet sticker for his performance against Georgia Tech.
The 6-1 235-pound freshman linebacker has had moments of excellence this season and shows us the future is getting brighter and brighter at this position. On Saturday, he did his thing, earning four tackles, one tackle for loss, one sack and one quarterback hurry.
That sack on Saturday gave him two on the season as he has played in 11 of the 12 games coming in as a reserve player.
On the year, the freshman has 22 tackles, 2.5 tackles for loss, two sacks, one pick-six, one pass breakup and two quarterback hurries.
He should have earned a helmet sticker in the UAB game for his pick-six, but Dumas-Johnson is here now.
Dumas-Johnson was flying all over the field on Saturday, and it looks like his confidence continues to rise the more he plays. His sack on Saturday came at a great time for Georgia.
It was in the fourth quarter, on 2nd and 10, he pushed back the quarterback 13 yards turning it into 3rd and long. Robert Beal Jr. got a sack on fourth down to force a turnover on downs.
Dumas-Johnson keeps showing flashes, so it’s going to be fun to see him with a full year under his belt to see how much he improves. Georgia needs him at this position, so if he gets a jump on some of the other young guys coming into the program, it will only earn him more time on the field.
