Georgia Bulldogs: Senior Bowl

Bulldogs well represented at Senior Bowl 

January, 25, 2013
ATHENS, Ga. -- No school is better represented this week at the Senior Bowl than Georgia, which sent six players to Mobile, Ala., to participate in college football’s premier postseason all-star game Saturday.

In addition to serving as a high-profile job interview for an assortment of NFL scouts, general managers, coaches and other personnel reps, this week’s Senior Bowl practices are also a mini-reunion for the six Bulldogs in Mobile who scattered throughout the country to prepare for the draft.

MOBILE, Ala. -- For Ben Jones and Cordy Glenn, the Senior Bowl has had the flavor of home.

When the two Georgia offensive linemen get done with practice, they pack up and head back to the hotel together and share a room. While most of the players at the annual all-star game struggle with the new environment, Jones and Glenn find comfort in the familiar.

“It’s just a little more comfortable,” Jones said. “You have someone to talk to. You can chit-chat.“

Said Glenn, “It’s not like you have to try and make a new friend while sometimes you just want to relax. It’s kind of cool to know someone you’ve known for years, like a comfort zone almost.”
