Coach Lilly, then Legacy

Nice feature by Starrs on Jeb Blazevich. Turns out it wasn't the long line of successful tight ends that Georgia has produced that lured him down from North Carolina.
“He’s a conscientious kid,” offensive coordinator Mike Bobo said. “He takes everything serious (and) works extremely hard. Just (look at) that long pass that Todd threw to him; if you go back and look at it, the ball is coming down and he actually catches it and looks that ball in the whole way. (It’s) very little things Coach Lilly teaches — how to play the position, how to block, how to step (and) how to catch. He tries to do it exactly as coach says. He’s got talent, too, and he’s a good player, but the little things have set him apart and made him able to make plays early as a freshman.”
