UGA Track and Field: Keturah Orji Named Academic All-American For Second Time

June 23, 2017

ATHENS, Ga. — Junior Keturah Orji has been honored as a CoSIDA Academic First Team All-American for the second time in her career, giving the Georgia track and field program its eighth honor of this kind.

This marks the third consecutive year that the Bulldogs have had an Academic First Team All-American in the sport. Georgia has now had at least one Academic All-American in one of its sports in every year since 1980.

Orji, a native of Mount Olive, N.J., had an exceptional junior year, including being named the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) National Women’s Indoor Field Athlete of the Year and being one of three finalists for The Bowerman Award, which is track and field’s version of football’s Heisman Trophy, for the second year in a row. She finished her third year with a 3.96 GPA in Financial Planning and was named the SEC Indoor and Outdoor Women’s Field Athlete of the Year.

UGA Recruiting: Dawgs Fighting Gamecocks Tooth and Nail for In-State Receiver


“I’m leaning toward the home-town favorite,” he told DawgNation. “It is the home team for me. I’ve been going up there lately for a lot of visits and working out with the coaches. I’ve been liking it more and more. They’ve been treating me well.”

UGA Football: How Many Games Are the Dawgs Projected to Win This Year?

Yes, UGA went 8-5 last year after firing a coach for only winning 10 games a season. Yes, the Dawgs had a first year head coach, a new staff, and a true freshman quarterback. Yes, it could have been worse. There are a couple of games that we could have easily lost. There were also a couple of games that we could have easily won.

Yes, we barely beat Nicholls State. yes, we lost to Vany. AND yes, we friggin’ lost to the Nerds. Yes, we can look at that as last season and chalk it up to a new, first year head coach learning on the job.

Now it’s time for Kirby Smart’s 2nd year at UGA. No, he will not be perfect. Yes, he’ll still make some mistakes. Yes, he should learn from some of the rookie mistakes he made last year. Same goes for Jacob Eason.

We should definitely win more games than last year, although the Dawgs have to play AT Notre Dame, Tennessee, and Auburn. Check out what CBS Sports says about how many games the Dawgs will win:

UGA Football: What Would Cause the Dawgs to Have a Disappointing Season?

There is a lot to be excited about this season for Dawg fans. Kirby Smart is entering his second season as head coach. We’ll have an experienced sophomore QB leading the team, along with Nick Chubb and Sony Michel in the backfield.

We have 10 starters returning on defense, accounting for approximately 86% of our total tackles next year. With another year for all of those players to grow, the Dawgs should have one of the best defenses in the country.

Of course there are reasons to be pessimistic. How much improvement will we see from the offensive line? Can our receivers get any separation to help out or quarterbacks? How much will Jacob Eason progress? Can he be accurate enough to scare defenses from loading the box with 9 and 10 defenders?

UGA Football: How Good of a Pass Rushing Duo Will the Dawgs Have This Year?

While Kirby Smart and his staff signed a ridiculously talented recruiting class last year, some of the best recruiting news we received was when Lorenzo Carter and Davin Bellamy announced with Nick Chubb and Sony Michel that they would be returning for their last season at UGA. That took us from having to replace both starters at outside linebacker to returning ten starters on defense.

While neither Bellamy or Carter made double digit sacks last year, they both got in the backfield and put pressure on the QB consistently. I’m not sure anyone expected Bellamy to come in with his size expecting him to lead the league in sacks. He’s more of a Jordan Jenkins OLB that can set the edge and help stop the run.

Most expected Lorenzo Carter to be the guy to make his name by putting sacks on the board. The physical freak had very high expectations put on him from the get go. Maybe he hasn’t quite lived up to those lofty expectations yet, but this could be the year he hits those double digit sacks.
