Wes Johnson’s Georgia baseball formula for Florida: focus, sense of urgency

Johnson has led Georgia to a consensus Top 10 ranking in his first season as head coach by emphasizing positivity and urgency, and nothing will change before the first pitch is thrown at 6:02 p.m. on Thursday night at Foley Field.
