ATLANTA – Georgia Tech’s Reggie Ball will be profiled on Monday’s ACC LIVE (6:30 PM on Fox Sports Net South). The freshman quarterback discusses his football career and how he’s handling his first season as a starting QB in the ACC. Reggie’s father (Reggie, Sr.) appears on the segment as well.
The 19-year-old true freshman has the Yellow Jackets competing for a bowl berth at 5-3 overall and 3-2 in the ACC, and he is making a serious run at conference rookie of the year honors. The versatile, 6-1, 180-pound quarterback ranks fifth in ACC passing yards (182.3 ypg) and total offense (206.9 ypg). Ball has already been named ACC rookie of the week four times this season, including his sterling performance in the Yellow Jackets’ 29-21 victory over NC State when he passed for 283 yards and accounted for three touchdowns.
