Good Counsel’s Jacob Hardie (Georgia) and Quince Orchard’s Johnny Hodges (TCU) to Compete in Monday Night’s National Championship Game

The undefeated and defending National Champion Georgia Bulldogs (14-0) will take on the TCU Horned Frogs (13-1) on Monday night for the 2022 NCAA College Football National Championship. Each team will have one Montgomery County native representing the area, as Jacob Hardie (Good Counsel, Class of 2021), Georgia, and Johnny Hodges (Quince Orchard, Class of 2019), TCU, prepare for Monday night’s game.

Jacob Hardie, who played wide receiver and free safety at Good Counsel, walked on to the Georgia football team when coaches invited him for a workout after seeing him on film while evaluating another player. According to Hardie, older players in front of him and injuries kept him from getting major playing time while he was at Good Counsel, but he knew what he was capable of. The 5’9, 180 pound Olney native is now on the roster of the defending national champions as a running back.

Johnny Hodges, a 6’2, 240 pound junior linebacker from Darnestown, who graduated from Quince Orchard High School in 2019, is a starting linebacker for the TCU Horned Frogs. He was named to the 2022 All-Big 12 Second Team and won the award for “Defensive Newcomer of the Year.” Hodges played at Navy for two seasons before transferring to TCU this year. Last year, he was fourth on the team at Navy with 50 tackles, despite playing just nine games.
