ATHENS — John Jenkins was uncertain of his family’s welfare Monday night.
When Georgia’s senior nose tackle spoke to reporters after Monday’s practice, the Connecticut native hadn’t called home yet. With Hurricane Sandy pounding the Northeast, Jenkins has done the best he can keeping tabs on his family. His position coach, Rodney Garner, showed him some pictures from storm-struck Millford, about 30 miles from Stamford, where Jenkins’ grandmother lives. Jenkins spoke to her Sunday night.
“My grandmother said she’s ready for it to be over with,” he said. ” … Stamford has a beach right next to it, right over there in the New England Sound. The sound is between Greenwich and Stamford and my grandmother was saying in Greenwich, they were being evacuated to higher ground. So I don’t know.”
Jenkins, who is from Meriden, Conn., also spoke Sunday night to his mother, who lives farther north.
