Richt says QB LeMay improving despite poor scrimmage numbers

Quarterback Christian LeMay wasn’t made available Thursday to talk to reporters about his less-than-stellar numbers from the Bulldogs’ first spring scrimmage on Tuesday.

Georgia quarterback Christian LeMay (16) was just 1-of-11 throwing in the Bulldogs scrimmage on Saturday.

The redshirt sophomore completed 1 of 11 passes for 13 yards on a windy day. Dropped balls played a part in that, coach Mark Richt said.

“The thing I like about Christian is he’s getting a better feel of how to run the show and how to get everybody lined up,” Richt said. “He spent a little bit of his time just trying to help some young receivers get lined up where they’re supposed to be and changing protections at the line and starting to make good decisions in the run game. He’s really improving.”

In a drill early in practice Thursday, walk-on Parker Welch was the third-string quarterback behind Aaron Murray and Hutson Mason.

Tight end Arthur Lynch said that LeMay switches from the first, second to third teams at times at practice.

“He’s all over the place,” Lynch said. “It’s kind of tough as a quarterback to get a groove. I don’t really think his numbers can do him justice in terms of his production. I think he’s come a long way. He’s understanding the offense a lot better. He’s got one of the strongest arms, if not the strongest arms, out of all the QBs. The talent’s there.”

Georgia scrimmages again on Saturday.
