UGA vs Oklahoma State: 99 Days (#99 Jamie Lindley)

#99 Jamie Lindley, PK
5-11, 168, Savannah (Savannah Christian HS), Soph.

Lindley was coached in high school by former Georgia and NFL player Donald Chumley. He was an All-State kicker at Savannah Christian before coming to UGA as a walk-on in 2008. He appeared in 2 games, handling a kickoff vs South Carolina, as well as an on-side kick (a successful one at that) and another kickoff vs Alabama.

Depth Chart Analysis: Lindley was firmly in place as the backup place kicker to Blair Walsh, and may have been set to enter the 2009 season with a chance to compete with some other walk-on kickers to handle all kickoffs. Then, the Dawgs signed JUCO kicker Brandon Bogotay late during the signing period, which doesn't bode well for Lindley (or any other PK other than Walsh) to see much of the field this season.

Notable #99s in UGA history: the late DL Jake Richardson, DL Robert Goodwin, DL Chuck Kinnebrew (who was among the first African-Americans ever to play for UGA), DL Jarius Wynn

This is what, about your 12th year doing your countdown? Always a highlight of the offseason and a sign that kickoff is just around the bend. Your top 25 list definitely set the tone for the summer. As always, I look forward to every days entry.

I'll add the warrior David Jacobs to list of former #99's.
