Defensive Back, Lance Austin
Lance Austin came into Georgia Tech in 2014 as a freshman. He only played in five games his freshman year, and only played in six games his sophomore year in 2015. Despite only playing in six games in ‘15, that would be the year that would put Austin in the Georgia Tech history books. Austin would be the one to recover the blocked kick and return it all the way back for a touchdown as time expired against Florida State in what is now known as the Miracle on Techwood Drive.
Aside from that miraculous play by Austin, his best year would come in 2016 where he managed an impressive 12 defended passes. Through his four-year tenure, Austin would go on to make 22 defended passes, three interceptions, and 104 total tackles.
