Player Countdown to Kickoff - No. 67

 

#67 Jonathan Owens Position: Offensive line Class: R. Sophomore

Stock

Height/Weight: 6-4, 294 High School: Susan Moore (Ala.)
Projected Fall Team Depth Chart Position: Third Team

Spring Review: With injuries to Trinton Sturdivant, A.J. Harmon and Tanner Strickland, Owens received a long, hard look from position coach Stacy Searels, who moved Owens all around the offensive line. When spring concluded, the Alabama native was actually listed as the second-team left tackle, although that status will certainly change with a healthy Sturdivant and Harmon.

Fall Preview: Right now, Owens is attempting to work his way up the depth chart, but it hasn't been easy. While it's true injuries have hampered his career, Owens simply hasn't been able to put himself in contention for anything but a backup role.

 

Jonathan Owens wears 67 for Georgia right now. He is sophomore offensive lineman from Blountsville, Alabama. He played one game last season for the Dawgs in the battle against Tennessee Tech.

Another 67 from Alabama was Chester Adams. The Big Cheese played both guard and tackle for the Bulldogs. He was drafted in the 7th round of the 2008 NFL Draft by the Chicago Bears.

Another 67 might have never been a 67 for the Bulldogs. Joel Parrish was drafted by the Los Angeles Dodgers to play baseball for them out of high school. He decided to play football for the Dawgs instead. In 1976, he was named All-American and helped lead Georgia to a SEC title. After graduating he played in the CFL for the Toronto Argonauts.

Eric Zeier might have been Georgia's first dynamic collegiate quarterback in terms of passing. The record book would certainly agree because when he left the Bulldogs he had 18 SEC records under his belt and 67 team records.

Speaking of records, Terrence Edwards holds the record for most career receptions as a Bulldog with 204. Of his 204 receptions, his longest went 67 yards and it happened during his sophomore season against Vanderbilt in a pass thrown by Quincy Carter.

Brett Millican was a fan favorite for the Bulldogs in the year 2000. The hard nosed running back actually lead the Dawgs in rushing that season even though he carried the ball just 67 times (he did gain 375 yards).

1967 was the year that Georgia did something that they never had done before. In the game between Houston and Georgia, the Bulldogs played on artificial turf for the first time. The Cougars defeated the Dawgs 15 to 14 in the Astrodome.

1967 - Georgia Record: 7-4
Head Coach: Vince Dooley
Captain: Kirby Moore
