ATHENS - Georgia Bulldog legend and future NFL football player Jordan Davis threw out the first pitch before the Atlanta Braves’ game with Wednesday with the Washington Nationals. 

Davis is considered one of the top prospects for the 2022 NFL Draft, which takes place later this month in Las Vegas. 

Davis made his love for the Braves clear during the Bulldogs’ celebrate of the 2021 College Football Playoff National Championship Game in Sanford Stadium in January by wearing a Braves jersey to the event. He reveled it after he told the crowd that the Bulldogs were never going to be forgotten for winning it all in 2021. The Atlanta Braves currently have +1200 odds to win the 2022 World Series according to FanDuel.

“This is something nobody can ever take away from us,” Davis told the Sanford Stadium crowd. “We are forever legendary.”

The 33-18 win over No. 1 Alabama was the Dawgs’ first national title since 1980. Davis was the anchor of the Bulldogs’ defense, which is considered one of the best of all time in college football. Georgia ended the 2021 season going 14-1, with the Dawgs’ only loss, which came to Alabama in the SEC Championship Game in Atlanta, been avenged in the CFP NCG in Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis.

Wednesday’s appearance with the Braves is not the first event to tie the two champions together. At the No. 1 Bulldogs 43-6 win over Missouri in November, Joc Pederson, manager Snitker and mascot Blooper were celebrated by Georgia fans. The Braves win in the World Series was the first for the franchise since winning it all in 1995. 

Georgia’s annual G Day is set to kickoff on Saturday at 1 PM on ESPN2. Davis and the rest of his 2021 teammates will be awarded their championship rings at the event. The Bulldogs are expecting a sell out of G Day.
