A 2013 first-team All-ACC selection, Mason was named to the preseason watch list for the Outland Trophy, which is presented annually to the nation’s top down lineman.
Mason, a native of Columbia, Tenn., has helped Georgia Tech lead the ACC in rushing offense over his last two seasons as a starter at guard. The 2014 All-America candidate started all 13 games at right guard last year and made 12 starts at left guard in 2012.
With Mason as a starter, Georgia Tech’s high-powered spread-option offense has finished fourth (2012) and sixth (2013) nationally in rushing offense.
