On Saturday, Oct. 9, The University of Georgia had two wishes come true: Coach Richt and the Bulldogs received their first conference win, and Drew Wiese, got to see what it felt like to be a UGA football player. Drew, Carter’s Make-A-Wish child for this quarter, is 16-years-old and from Gainesville, Ga. His wish was to become a UGA football player for a day, which came true as a result of Carter and the Make-A-Wish program.
He began his day with a few gifts from Carter and Make-A-Wish including an official team jersey, UGA hat, autographed football and a bag full of Bulldog goodies. Then, off he went for a pre-game meeting with the coaches and team. Drew and his father participated in the esteemed “Dawg Walk” to the stadium where he then cheered his favorite team on from the sidelines between the hedges.
