Youngster at the helm for Dawgs

Murray opens practice as Georgia

Georgia's Aaron Murray was one of the most highly recruited quarterbacks coming out of high school two years ago.

ATHENS, Ga. (AP) - Mark Richt isn't afraid of starting a freshman quarterback. He has started two freshmen - David Greene and Matthew Stafford - at the position in his first nine seasons as
Georgia's coach.

Freshman Aaron Murray is opening practice as Georgia's starter
on Monday. Richt says this situation is different because there is
no experienced backup behind Murray.

The Bulldogs' four quarterbacks for Monday's first practice are freshmen, including two who walked on the team this summer.

Murray, from Tampa, was held out last season as a redshirt.

Richt says his depth chart at quarterback has the least experience "maybe in the history of college football." Murray says he can lean on returning starters at every other position on offense.
