Walsch Looking Good

Kicker Blair Walsh

Say this for Blair Walsh. The Bulldogs’ freshman place-kicker is nothing if not confident.

Walsh emerged from Georgia’s special teams-only scrimmage Monday morning feeling good and walking tall — or as tall as someone 5-foot-9 can.

“It was nice,” said Walsh, rated the No. 1 placekicker prospect in the nation by USA Today and Scout.com. “Kicking in Sanford Stadium is definitely a treat. Kicking on the practice fields is nice but when you get in that stadium and you feel that, that’s the coolest thing going.”

Walsh went on to make all three of his field-goal attempts in the afternoon scrimmage, from 36, 37, and 38 yards, and all his PATs.

Walsh went on to say he feels sure he’ll handle all placement kicks and kickoffs, even though Richt hasn’t officially bestowed it on him.

“I have confidence that he thinks I’m the guy for it and I think I will be the guy for it,” Walsh said. “But as far as making his decision publicly, I don’t know if he’ll even do that or just give me the nod before the game.”
