As most people wake up this morning, they are thinking about how it may be their last day of work or school before a long break. However, Dawg fans are waking up with only one thing on their minds- Aaron Murray. Our beloved, record-setting quarterback will undergo surgery today. It truly breaks all of our hearts. We will all come together today and pray for him, send him well-wishes, give back to him for all he has given us. On and off the field he has been an amazing person. Just remember, after the heartbreaking loss at Auburn last week, he woke up on Sunday and spent time with some of his very special friends. He didn’t have to do that. He could’ve moped around, but no, he spent his time helping others. What more could you ask for in a guy?! He loves the University of Georgia and the University of Georgia loves him.
As we all wake up and go on about our days, in the back of our minds will be our leader. We will check Twitter, Facebook, the AJC, and the University’s sports site just waiting to get word on our quarterback and how his surgery went. As much as we hated to see his season end, I can’t help but think of all the good times we had with Aaron as our quarterback. We think about the winning record he had against Florida, watching him break record after record, the love he gave to the fans after winning big games, the guy he is off the field, the love he has for our great institution. Aaron is our idol. Our kid’s role model. What more can we ask of Aaron?
At this point, it is now our responsibility as Dawg fans to give back to him what he gave to us. We will think of Aaron all day today, wait for his mom or sister to post something regarding his condition, wait to hear good news that he will be back stronger than ever and be ready for the Draft.
Aaron, as Dawg fans, we are thinking of you today and everyday that you go through your recovery. It won’t be easy, but we will stand behind you through it all and we know you will give it 110% just like you did every day for us. We truly are so thankful that you were our quarterback for four great years. Thank you for being the man that you are and for loving the University of Georgia like you do. We love you and wish only the best for you and your family.
