ATHENS - Kirby Smart and the Georgia Bulldogs took a delay of game on the first play of the program’s G-Day spring scrimmage to honor former offensive lineman Devin Willock. 

Willock and football staff member Chandler LeCroy lost their lives in a car accident in the early hours the morning after Georgia’s second straight national championship parade and celebration on Jan. 14. 

The red team lined up with just 10 players on the field and took a delay of game to honor Willock. Xavier Truss sat out for the first play as Carson Beck kneeled down to trigger a round of appluase from fans inside of Sanford Stadium.

Willock was a reserve offensive lineman that saw his share of snaps. Smart and his staff rotated offensive lineman in and out during the season. He was set to continue to be an important part of Georgia’s deep offensive line unit. 

“We are all heartbroken and devastated with the loss of Devin Willock and Chandler LeCroy,” Smart said in a statement after the tragedy. “Devin was an outstanding young man in every way. He was always smiling, was a great teammate and a joy to coach. Chandler was a valuable member of our football staff and brought an incredible attitude and energy every single day. We grieve with their families for this tragic loss and will support them in every way possible.”
