This was by far my favorite G-Day quote from Kirby Smart:
Safety Richard Lecounte from Liberty County led all tacklers at Saturday’s G-Day game with nine for the losing black team.
“I’d say this, that’s not a good sign when you’re safety is your leading tackler,” coach Kirby Smart said, “but he’s done that all spring. He’s a see ball, hit ball guy. I love coaching him. …What he does on the field is he runs fast, he tries to hit you and he likes tackling. The guy likes playing football. Those kind of guys you can make good safeties.” [Emphasis added.]
It don’t get much simpler than that.
