Ray Drew, UGA’s 5-star football recruit, recently had the opportunity to meet one of his all-time favorite country music singers.

The 6-foot-5, 260-pound defensive end from Thomas County Central and his younger brother went to go see The Charlie Daniels Band at a Valdosta concert earlier this month. Before the show, Drew stood in line to meet the 74-year-old Daniels.

That’s when the fun began.

“There were other people in line that found out that I was going to play football at the University of Georgia,” Drew recalled with a laugh, “and they started asking me for autographs while I was waiting for Mr. Daniels.”

The singer’s handlers noticed the small crowd gathered around Drew, and learned about his background as an ordained minister and future college football player by the time Drew got to the front. Daniels signed an autograph and posed for a picture with the Drew brothers, then invited them to stand on the side of the stage while he played his set, which — of course — included “The Devil Went Down to Georgia.”

This is a good story. I wonder if young Mr. Drew is a TEA Party supporter?

“This is a good story. I wonder if young Mr. Drew is a TEA Party supporter?”

There is roughly a 93% chance he is an Obama supporter.
(Reality sucks sometimes).
