GREENSBORO, N.C. – Senior defensive back D.J. White and redshirt junior quarterback Justin Thomas will represent the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets at the 2015 ACC Football Kickoff. This year’s ACC Kickoff will be held July 19-21 at the Pinehurst Resort in the Village of Pinehurst, N.C.
The 2015 ACC Football Kickoff credential site is currently taking applications from accredited members of the media and will continue to do so until 12 p.m. on July 15.
Thomas was one of 80 players named to the Maxwell Watch List earlier this week. As one of Tech’s three captains in 2014, the Prattville, Ala., native started all 14 games under center for the Yellow Jackets, leading them to an 11-3 record and the 2014 Capital One Orange Bowl title. The Orange Bowl MVP was named second-team All-ACC by the league’s head coaches and third-team by the media. In 2014, he rushed 190 times for a team- and career-best 1,086 yards (5.7 yards per carry) and eight TDs. He completed 96-of-187 passes (.513) for 1,719 yards and 18 touchdowns.
White started all 14 games in the secondary for the Yellow Jackets in 2014. He posted 66 tackles – including 52 solo – and 2.5 tackles for loss, and was later named All-ACC honorable mention by the media. He recorded a team-high-tying four interceptions, including one returned for a touchdown. He also registered a team-best eight pass break-ups, including a career-high-tying three PBUs in each of Georgia Tech’s last two bowl appearances.
