Kris Durham: From 8th Grade to UGA Practice

Kris Durham isn't making all his spring practice meetings on time. He's also coming in a little "over-dressed" for the meetings when he gets there. All of this is because Durham is doing his practice teaching this semester. He's an education major scheduled to graduate from UGA in May, and his student teaching assignment came up during the spring semester. So the UGA senior wide receiver reports to school at Oconee Middle School at 7:30 sharp and his responsibilities with his 8th grade students don't end there until 3:3o in the afternoon. Then it's a mad dash to the Bulldog practice facilities for spring drills. All of these efforts should prepare him well for the career of teaching and coaching to which he aspires. He's also found out that he wasn't getting away with as much as he thought he was back in his own 8th grade days!
