Seth Emerson shares a great JT Daniels story ($$):
When two of Daniels’ teammates at Georgia were asked to tell a story about him on Tuesday, they began chuckling.
“Oh man,” left tackle Jamaree Salyer said, laughing. “A JT Daniels story? You got one Warren?”
“I don’t know, man,” guard Warren Ericson said. “JT is a character, man.”
Salyer came up with a story: During Daniels’ first start for Georgia, at home against Mississippi State, the quarterback was decked by a defender for the first time. Salyer wondered how Daniels, hit in game action for the first time since tearing his ACL 14 months earlier, would react.
Daniels got right back up.
“Hit me again!” Daniels told the defender.
“I think he threw a touchdown on that play, too,” Salyer said, and remembered thinking: “OK, cool, we got a tough kid. … He got up off the ground, kept throwing the ball, threw it and threw it and threw it for 400 (yards). Yeah, he’s tough.”
I can’t help but think there’s a missing expletive deleted from Daniels’ quote.
