Whether a football season is a success or failure, there are always some players who make themselves stand out with consistently great performances, both in victory and defeat. Although the Georgia Tech football season didn’t have the ending that many hoped for, there were some outstanding players.
Georgia Tech’s offense had some great moments and some huge games, but also showed that there is still work to be done against top-line defenses. Quarterback Vad Lee showed a lot of promise, and running backs David Sims and Robert Godhigh both had very productive seasons, with some game-changing performances.
On defense, the Yellow Jackets had a huge turnaround from a dismal 2012 season. In his first year back at Tech, defensive coordinator Ted Roof brought the defensive back to a very respectable 30th in scoring defense, and 21st overall nationally, with improvement happening week after week as the season had gone on.
On special teams, Georgia Tech was without their primary return man, Jamal Golden, for most of the season, and never really got things going in the return game, but they were exceptional at kick coverage, blocking punts, and in the kicking game overall.
