ATHENS -- Georgia linebacker Adrian Hollingshed is excited about and confident in the Bulldogs linebacking corps. Along with returning players Orantes Grant and Dustin Luckie, Hollingshead wreaked hook on the South Carolina offense last Saturday in a 17-3 victory in Columbia holding the gamecocks to only 132-yards of total offense.

For his part Hollingshed, who had a career best and team high 8 solo and 9 assisted tackles, was named the Southeastern Conference defensive player of the week.

"It makes me feel up here," he said with his hand raised parallel above his head. "Now I just have to go out an play like that every week."

A sophomore, Hollingshed became a starter this season with the departure of middle linebacker Greg Bright. To his left is another first year starter Dustin Luckie. Before the season the quality and depth of the linebacking corps was questioned.

"I was not really concerned," said Hollingshed. "We have some really good guys here. Not a bunch of nobodies. I know we have a couple of great guys that just left but we have the ability to replace [them]."

Hollingshead now leads the Dawgs in total tackles with 11 solo and 11 assists, two of those for a loss and one a sack. He also intercepted a broken up pass on the Gamecocks' first offense play last Saturday night.
