Triple-op­tion op­tions

Austin American-Statesman - - SPORTS -

The Yel­low Jack­ets ranked first in the ACC in seven of­fen­sive cat­e­gories and av­er­aged 422.1 yards a game in 2009. John­son’s triple-op­tion of­fense ranked sec­ond in the nation in rush­ing of­fense (295.4 yards a game). Tech also ranked first in the nation in third down-con­ver­sion per­cent­age (52.26 per­cent).

Much of that could be cred­ited to Dwyer, who ranked 24th in the nation in yards a game (99.64). With Dwyer gone, the Yel­low Jack­ets have two ju­niors ( Mar­cus Wright and Roddy Jones) and a se­nior ( An­thony Allen) at their run­ning back po­si­tions, with quar­ter­back Joshua Nesbitt back for his se­nior year. Nesbitt, by the way, is a threat unto him­self: He ranks 10th on the Ge­or­gia Tech ca­reer rush­ing list with 2,089 yards and 25 touch­downs.
