Georgia quarterback Jake Fromm will turn 20 on Monday, and then he and his Bulldogs teammates will begin preseason practices later in the week.
One of the primary concerns on the minds of UGA fans is the condition of Fromm’s broken left hand. That injury occurred July 3 when Fromm was hit by a flying ski-rope handle while he was in a boat on Lake Burton. Reports out of Athens are that Fromm, a sophomore right-hander, won’t miss any practice time in August.
In May, Fromm received medical treatment after a fishing lure lodged in his leg.
All in all, it was an eventful summer for Fromm. Now after all that drama, Fromm will begin preparing for a new season with highly esteemed freshman Justin Fields ready to challenge him for playing time.
The Bulldogs’ fan day is set for Saturday at Sanford Stadium, and the season opener is scheduled for 3:30 p.m. Sept. 1 in the same venue.
