Wilson, Andrews among spring football award winners

Center David Andrews and inside linebacker Ramik Wilson were named most valuable players in the spring on each side of the ball as Georgia announced its spring awards.

The most improved player on offense is Greg Pyke, who is holding down the starting right guard job. The most improved on defense is defensive end James DeLoach.

“He’s worked hard on the field,” defensive coordinator Jeremy Pruitt said of DeLoach. “He’s a guy that kind of continues to show up that has a motor and that’s one thing were looking for is guys who want to play every play. He’s a guy that stuck out a little bit.”

The Coffee County Hustle Award (most desire) went to receiver Chris Conley and defensive back J.J. Green. The True Grit Award was won by offensive tackle Xzavier Ward.

The Hugh Hendrix Memorial Award (player who most strains his potential) was given to quarterback Hutson Mason and outside linebacker Leonard Floyd. The outstanding walk-ons are receiver Kenneth Towns and cornerback Aaron Davis.
