Before the Georgia career of Blair Walsh is finished, he will already have set himself up as one of the best kickers in Bulldog history. And that history is packed full of great kickers: Bennett, Butler, Etter, Robinson, and on and on. In 2009, Walsh was a semifinalist for the Lou Groza Award after nailing 20 0f 22 field goal attempts. One of those misses was from 55 yards, and his longest was from 53 yards out. He was a rock solid 42 of 42 in extra points, and accumulated 102 points for the season. Even though having to kickoff with the 'Directional Kicking Philosophy' employed by Georgia's special teams staff, Walsh still led the SEC in touchbacks with 17. With that unsuccessful, detrimental tactic changed this year, he will surpass that 17 by leaps and bounds. Blair Walsh will be instrumental in the success of the Georgia Bulldogs this season. He will enjoy a phenomenal year. Count on it!
