March 29, 2013
Date: Friday, March 29
Practice: No. 3 (of 14)
Practice notes: The Yellow Jackets practiced for just under two hours in what felt like spring weather for the first time this year… the players wore shells, moving a step closer to full contact, which will happen for the first time this spring at tomorrow morning’s closed practice… tomorrow should be a busy day for sophomore RB Broderick Snoddy, who will practice in the morning, then run the 200-meters in at the Yellow Jacket Invitational, around 3:30 p.m…. as reported in the AJC this morning, walk-on Holland Frost has moved from quarterback to safety and will switch jersey numbers from 12 to 13.
Position battle: An interesting competition at A-back is taking shape as a number of players are battling to take Orwin Smith’s starting job. Among those competing this spring: Deon Hill, Synjyn Days, B.J. Bostic, impressive redshirt freshman Dennis Andrews and others. Tony Zenon will also be in the mix when he returns in August. By the numbers
Georgia Tech’s current players combined for 210 starts last season. Unofficially, only Rice and East Carolina return more starts from the 2012 season. The survey of all FCS teams was conducted by Dave Plati of Colorado.
