ATHENS, Ga. (WIAT) — Scott Cochran, the University of Georgia’s special teams coordinator and former strength and conditioning coach for the Alabama Crimson Tide, spent his Fourth of July celebrating something special.

“Proud to be 1 year sober,” Cochran wrote. “This one means a lil more than the rings.”
