Video: Long leads the way
Rivals250 offensive tackle Austin Long is the leader in more than one way for Briarcrest Christian. Not only is the 6-foot-5 270 pound Georgia Bulldog commitment the leader off the field, but he leads the way on the field too.
Long moves from side to side playing both right and left tackle for Coach Major Wright. He has the ideal size, length, and feet to play tackle, but he is mobile like guards.
His athleticism is one of his biggest strengths and Briarcrest utilizes that. They pull him often and he has no problem getting to the second level of defense.
Against Southwind, Long had to lead his team back in the second half after they were down 14-7. He played hard, he had numerous key blocks, and he showed why the Dawgs and many other top programs were after him early in the spring.
He paves the way for the running backs, he protects his quarterback, and he does it all well. Watch Long get after it right here in these exclusive clips.

Quick Notes: Long will be visiting Georgia unofficially when the Dawgs host Alabama on September 27. Look for an exclusive Photo Gallery in the near future as well as a feature on Long as he is in the UGASports Hot Seat.
