A second team All-Conference pick by College Sports Madness, Woodard had a record-breaking year at Georgia State University in 2013. Woodard played in 12 regular season games where he had 50 total tackles, 2 for loss and a forced fumble. He has a career best of 10 tackles per game, which was declared during an opener against Samford University.
