Junior University of Georgia receiver Chris Conley, who leads the Bulldogs in receiving yards this season, has been obsessed with Star Wars for as long as he can remember. His infatuation has led him to dress up as a Jedi at past school functions and put out a casting call a few weeks ago for other devotees to participate in the film he hopes to create:

Since then, Conley's enlisted the help of UGA hype videographer Frank Martin. The film is currently in pre-production, and it appears as though Conley's putting a whole lotta thought into it.

“I’ve yet to decide how many people are going to be dueling yet,” Conley said, via the Athens Banner-Herald. “I definitely want to be one of them. We’ve got to get that together. We’ve got to choreograph the whole thing. It’s going to take a little while to practice and film.”
