Of all the bright spots on this year’s 7-0 Georgia Bulldogs football team, none has been more meme-worthy than Rodrigo “Godrigo” Blankenship, the bespectacled redshirt sophomore kicker from Marietta whose unkempt-Clark-Kent appearance and swaggy demeanor have made him a fast fan favorite.
So, it’s only natural that, ahead of Saturday’s Georgia-Florida game in Jacksonville, the Dawgs would give Blankenship his very own hype video:
