That was Sean McGarity, Greg McGarity’s nephew and the son of Kim and Stuart McGarity of Watkinsville. Sean McGarity is a redshirt freshman and a backup center and long snapper for the Buccaneers. And he was able to fulfill his lifelong dream Saturday of getting to play between the hedges at Sanford Stadium.
“It was incredible,” Sean McGarity said. “It was something I’ve dreamed about since I was a kid. Just being back home in the energy of Sanford Stadium that I’ve experienced for however many times I’ve been here, it still came to life today. You still get chills when you run out on that field for the first time. Your stomach kind of drops a little bit but it’s just excitement and I couldn’t ask for a better experience here.”
