Georgia Tech ran just over 100 plays Saturday morning when the Yellow Jackets scrimmaged in Bobby Dodd Stadium.
The results were a mixed bag. The offense produced several big plays and four touchdowns, but the defense had its moments, too, and forced several fumbles.
“That’s the thing about an intra-squad scrimmage,” head coach Paul Johnson said. “You can’t win. But, I thought we made progress, I thought we took strides today.”
Tech’s four offensive touchdowns Saturday:
— Robert Godhigh, an 8-yard run on the first team offense’s first drive of the game.
— An 8-yard TD run by sophomore A-back B.J. Bostic on fourth-and-goal.
— Two rushing touchdowns by redshirt freshman QB Vad Lee – one from nine yards out and one a 49-yard scamper.
— First-team QB, senior Tevin Washington, by design, saw a limited amount of action on Saturday.
While the defense had its share of highlights Saturday morning, including a number of forced fumbles, defensive coordinator was far from pleased. “Collectively,” defensive coordinator Al Groh said, “it was a sub-par performance.”
More than 100 high school coaches, on campus for a clinic produced by the Tech coaching staff, were on hand Saturday. Also on the sidelines, former Jacket WR Stephen Hill and former LB Sedric Griffin.
Tech will hold another public scrimmage next Saturday morning. The spring game, Friday Night on the Flats (presented by PNC Bank), is set for Friday, April 20th.
