University of Georgia football fans remember where we were when #3 Todd Gurley broke onto the scene in 2012. For us, this was particularly special because it was the first time Cassie got to shoot a gameday in Sanford stadium. Believe it or not, it was the first football game she ever photographed. With great expectations at the season opener, emotions ran high, and Todd Gurley delivered.
Scoring not one, not two, but three touchdowns –- it was the beginning of TG3's record-breaking tenure as a college athlete, one that has developed into something nearly every player dreams of: the opportunity to make a career out of the game to which he dedicates so much effort, pain, and passion. For Cassie Wright Photography, it was the beginning of a beautiful relationship with the Bulldawg Nation, giving us experiences we'll never forget.
Now, years later in 2015, it is a time of celebration, reflection, and optimism -– the player we have rooted for in Athens for three years gets to show his skills in the NFL. We'd like to share the most sincere congratulations for achieving this goal. It may be the end of an era, but it's just the beginning of the professional legacy for a Damn Good Dawg. Congrats, Todd.
