Every once in awhile a defensive player comes along that is known as a ‘headhunter’. A player who takes pride in the physicality aspect of the game.

There is no question who that player has been for the last few season in Athens. Safety Lewis Cine, a Minnesota Viking first-round pick this spring, was that player for Georgia.

At just 6-foot-1, 200 pounds, Cine always seemed to hit like a guy twice his size.

The All-SEC First Team selection is keeping this same mindset in Minnesota.

‘My head is I just want to stack bodies.’

A semifinalist for the 2021 Jim Thorpe Award, Cine finished the 2021 season as the Bulldogs’ leading tackler with 73 total stops and also had a team-high nine pass breakups and was named Defensive MVP of the CFP Championship Game.
