THE FLATS – Georgia Tech junior defensive back LaMiles Brooks (Jacksonville, Fla./Trinity Christian Academy), junior offensive lineman Jordan Williams (Gainesville, Ga./Gainesville H.S.) and senior defensive lineman Sylvain Yondjouen (Ruisbroek, Belgium/Don Bosco School) will join head coach Brent Key in representing the Yellow Jackets at next week’s Atlantic Coast Conference Football Kickoff, the ACC announced on Tuesday. Tech will be featured at the three-day media event on Tuesday, July 25 in Charlotte, N.C.
Brooks, Williams and Yondjouen have combined to play in 98 games and make 45 starts during the course of their Georgia Tech careers. All three played in all 12 games for the Yellow Jackets a season ago.
Key will be attending his first ACC Kickoff as Georgia Tech’s head coach, after being officially named the Jackets’ 21st head coach following the conclusion of last season. He served as Tech’s interim head coach for the final eight games of the 2022 campaign and helped lead the Jackets to a 4-4 record after a 1-3 start. The four wins included two road victories over nationally ranked opponents – a 26-21 win at No. 24 Pitt and a 21-17 triumph at No. 11 North Carolina.
The ACC Network will have wall-to-wall live coverage from the ACC Kickoff, running from 9 a.m-4 p.m. each day (July 25-27).
