In addition to being Georgia’s backup quarterback, it looks like Brice Ramsey is also the backup punter.
On Georgia’s last offensive series of the game, Ramsey, who was in as the quarterback on the drive, remained in on fourth down and punted the ball away. The punt traveled 42 yards and was fair caught by South Carolina’s Rashad Fenton.
On Sunday, Georgia head coach Mark Richt said Ramsey has been practicing in a backup role at the position. He does have experience as he punted and kicked in high school at Camden County.
"We decided to slip him in there,” Richt said. “He's been a guy working in case something ever happened to Collin (Barber). We got in a situation in the game where we decided to give him a game rep in case somewhere along the way he has to."
Never miss a local story.
Ramsey’s 42-yard effort was just over the 41.5-yard average Barber has for the season. Of course, not many people may have seen Ramsey punt the ball given it was near the end of a blowout.
"I don't know how many people noticed it but even some of the coaches didn't even know until (Sunday) that he punted it,” Richt said.
