When he went down with an injury against Tennessee, Justin Scott-Wesley became the third Georgia starting skill position player to tear an ACL . The Bulldogs’ also lost running back Keith Marshall against the Vols, as well as top wideout Malcolm Mitchell in Week 1.
When faced with the long road to recovery, Scott-Wesley posted one of the most down-to-earth responses we have ever seen to his Facebook page.
With so much emphasis placed on wins and losses, Scott-Wesley offered wonderful perspective beyond the gridiron. Football is a game predicated upon violence, but it’s all contained on the field of play. Real adversity happens when the pads come off.
It’s refreshing to see young man who understands his place on the football field while maintaining a strong social awareness.
