The Georgia Bulldogs are commonly referred to as the “Dawgs” by their fanbase, but members of the team’s linebacking core are hoping they can transform into “wolves.”
In a very entertaining profile on DawgNation.com, it was revealed that Georgia linebacker Lorenzo Carter was watching a nature documentary with a few teammates that was about wolves on the hunt.
Because of what they saw, the inspiration was found.
“We watched how a wolf pack would hunt and stay determined and follow their prey for miles until it was time to actually go and attack,” he said. “It kind of reminded us of all the work we put in before the season and before games. We watch everything our prey does. Then, once it’s our time, we go and attack.”
Who doesn’t bingewatch Netflix? For most of us, however, we enjoy the program and then move on.
For Carter, that led to outside linebacker adopting the “Wolf Pack” nickname — sorry, North Carolina State and Nevada. The Wolf Pack will always have the back of their other teammates.
“In the locker room if one is getting messed with, just do a little howl and the other wolves will come,” Jenkins said. “If you mess with one of us, you mess with all of us.”
The Wolf Pack shows a clear bond between Georgia’s outside linebackers — Carter, Jenkins, Leonard Floyd and David Bellamy.
In fact, the group even has their own hand-signal which is basically the “Hook ’em Horns” sign. If you’re a fan of old school wrestling, it is very clear where the inspiration came from.
Let’s hope the Wolf Pack can stay strong and lead the Bulldogs defense through their 2015 schedule.
