Legendary Georgia running backs Nick Chubb and Sony Michel were back in the Peach State over the weekend. Since the NFL offseason is among us, the two chose to give back a little by putting on a youth football camp at North Oconee High School. They were in Athens Friday night, spend Saturday putting on their camp, and attended the Atlanta Hawks game that evening.
The two ball carriers each eclipsed 900 yards in their first NFL seasons despite challenges. Chubb carried the ball 192 times for 996 yards and eight touchdowns. He also had 20 catches for 149 yards and a pair of scores. He did all of that in Cleveland despite not getting more than three touches in a game for the first six games of the season.
Michel and New England won the ultimate prize in his rookie season. The NFL regular season saw him play in 13 games with seven starts where he carried the ball 209 times for 931 yards and seven scores. He really turned it on in the playoffs, carrying it 71 times 336 yards and six scores. He was the only player to score a touchdown in Super Bowl LIII.
During the football camp on Saturday, the two fielded questions from campers ranging to their relationship with popular teammates to their rookie performances in the league. They were both mic'd up by 11Alive out of Atlanta and the video of that can be seen below.
