Marshall Morgan is in the lead to handle Georgia‚Äôs field goals and extra points, but walk-on Jamie Lindley may be giving Morgan a run for the kickoff job.
‚ÄúI can tell you it‚Äôs between me and Marshall,‚Äù Lindley said after Monday‚Äôs practice. ‚ÄúEven today, we were both still kicking off. We both did reps during practice. It‚Äôs for them to decide.‚Äù
The senior from Savannah competed with Blair Walsh on kickoffs in 2008, kicked off in the second game that year against South Carolina and then handled two onside kicks against Alabama.
Lindley didn‚Äôt hesitate when asked if it would mean a lot to do it again.
‚ÄúOh, my gosh, yes,‚Äù he said. ‚ÄúIt would mean everything. I‚Äôve been here forever. This will be my fifth season. I was really recruited (as a walk-on) as a kickoff guy. That‚Äôs my specialty.‚Äù
Lindley said that kickoffs in scrimmages have basically been split, but that Morgan gets most of the practice reps on field goals and extra points.
‚ÄúHe looks like he‚Äôs established there,‚Äù Lindley said.
