Two Georgia Tech players stood out above the rest on Saturday in the Jackets blowout loss to the Clemson Tigers.
Offense: RB Jahmyr Gibbs
It’s starting to feel like a broken record wi to Gibbs, but each week, he’s without a doubt the Jackets best player offensively and he was once again against Clemson. Gibbs totaled 18 touches against the Tigers for 90-yards, an average of five yards per touch. It’s not huge numbers by any mean, but he was the Jackets only way of effectively moving the ball throughout the day. His 90-yards accounted for about 44% of the Jackets total offense on the day.
Defense: No one
When a defense gives up 73 points and 671-yards of total offense, there is nobody who played well and it was a complete team effort that created such a point and yardage total. For that reason, no defensive player in our opinion should earn a player of the game nod for this week. There were players who were better than others obviously but the numbers speak for themselves.
Special Teams: Pressley Harvin III
We raved about Harvin in our takeaways so there’s nothing we haven’t already said about the South Carolina native. Harvin is truly a weapon for the Jackets and has saved them plenty of potential short field situations over the years. His ability to flip field position has been a great asset hi entire career and will be hard to replace once he moves whether that is this upcoming offseason or after next year. He averaged 48.3 yards on nine punts against the Tigers.
