Uzzi Named ACC Offensive Lineman of the Week

Sept. 19, 2011

GREENSBORO, N.C. – Georgia Tech redshirt junior Omoregie Uzzi was named the ACC Offensive Lineman of the Week, the conference office announced Monday.

Uzzi and the Yellow Jacket offensive line dominated the line of scrimmage in Georgia Tech’s 66-24 win over Kansas. The Jackets broke an NCAA record for yards per rushing attempt (12.1), broke an ACC record for rushing yards (604) and smashed a school record for total offense (768). Tech allowed only one sack on the day.

This is Uzzi’s first ever ACC Performer of the Week nod. The Lithonia, Ga. native is on the watch list for the Outland Trophy Award, which goes to the nation’s best interior lineman.
