As we look to cap off this decade of Georgia Tech athletics, we present our All-Decade Team for Georgia Tech football.
The 2019 football season is officially over for the Yellow Jackets, bringing an end to another decade of Georgia Tech football.
The 2010’s were a decade of ups and downs for the Jackets. 90% of the decade was under the reigns of former head coach Paul Johnson and his infamous triple-option offense. A new era began in the 2019 season as Geoff Collins took over as head coach.
In the 2010’s fans were able to witness some of the most exciting and heart-wrenching games in Georgia Tech history, such as the Miracle on Techwood Drive against Florida State in 2015 and the wins over in-state rival Georgia in 2014 and 2016 (both of which occurred in Athens).
Georgia Tech led the way to two ACC Coastal Division titles in 2012 and 2014, both of which ended in heartbreaking losses in the ACC title game to the likes of Florida State.
We got to see two victories in the Clean, Old-Fasioned Hate rivalry, and a huge Orange Bowl victory over Mississippi State in 2014 which then put the Jackets as the number 7 ranked team in the nation. Despite making it to seven bowl games in the 2010’s the Jackets were only able to muster up three victories in those games.
It has been a decade full of changes and somewhat inconsistencies, but there has been one consistent of the football teams in the 2010’s: excitement.
Below is Yellow Jacked Up’s 2010’s All-Decade Football Team, which features the most prominent and successful players, by position, that graced Grant Field on Saturday’s. These players brought excitement to the game and performed to the highest of their potential week-in and week-out.
