GWA Hydrates the Dawgs

Georgia Bulldogs love #GeorgiaWatermelon 🍉🏈

The Georgia Bulldogs celebrated the end of their football practice on Saturday, August 17 with the annual watermelon cutting after their two-hour scrimmage.. Temperatures hovered around 96 degrees during the Saturday afternoon workout at Dooley Field. The team was able to cool down and re-hydrate after practice with the freshly cut Georgia watermelons provided by the Coggins' family from their farm in Franklin County. The 2019 Georgia Watermelon Association Queen Meredith McGlamory continued the 19 year old tradition of the queen joining the Bulldogs for the cutting. Several Bulldogs made sure to have their picture taken with McGlamory before leaving the stadium.
