    AJC Scrimmage Report 8/18/12

    ‘Ragged’ scrimmage closes Georgia Tech camp | Georgia Tech

    -Looks like the BB race could have a surprise: Broderick Snoddy!

    B-back Broderick Snoddy, possibly the fastest player on the team, provided fireworks by going untouched on a 70-yard touchdown run early on, but his fitness level could not sustain him through the whole morning. Snoddy had also been a candidate to play A-back, but has worked at B-back for most of camp.
    Of course, we don't know which team he was on or played against. Laskey sounds like he's still #2, but could be #1 if Sims isn't 100%.

    -Vad Lee sounds like he's bounced back. He also got some first team work. GT nation can breathe a little easier:

    2. After a poor performance in the teamís first scrimmage last Saturday, quarterback Vad Lee rebounded by leading multiple touchdown drives with the first- and second-team offenses. Among his highlights were a 38-yard run down the right sideline on an option keeper and two passes to A-back B.J. Bostic, one for an 11-yard score and a 28-yarder over the middle to set up another touchdown. (Scrimmage details were provided by the Tech sports information staff.)

    More details from Ramblinwreck.com:

    Georgia Tech Official Athletic Site - Football

    -Sounds like Justin Thomas is continuing to make plays...unfortunately, for both sides...

    Still a lot of question marks heading into our clash with VT.

    So Vad ran the option, had a great keeper and passed well. From the GT site sounds like TW and Vad got most of the snaps.

    Sims still out.

    The next depth chart will be interesting. {It's still the 12 August one right now.} Expect Vad #2 and Days at AB. The photos on the GT site made Days look really good (he probably was!). I'd love Days at AB take the pitch and then throw.

    Thanks for the links.

    Players are coming out of the wood pile. Snoddy is a force to be dealt with. Turn him loose and let him go. He's faster that Sammy Watkins.

    We have athletes, finally. Coach will have to get it organized, and he will. This team has blinding speed and quickness in the line. Woe be unto the Hokes. They are not ready for this.

    I'm as excited as any to see one of our fastest guys at B-back, but he's listed at 190. Can he take the punishment that the position demands?

    BB will be a position by committee to share the punishment. We won't know till we try. Last year Sims was BB about 2/3 of the time with Perkins and Lyons getting most of the rest of the carries. So Sims being out / limited is a big deal.

    But to your point, Sims Perkins and Lyons were all in the 210 area, so 190 is light.

    It's just my opinion (or guess), but I don't think it's as much about the weight as it is the running style. Kinda how a guy like Warrick Dunn was able to play in the NFL as long as he did at 185-190 lbs. I haven't seen enough of Snoddy to have a reason to doubt him or believe in him, but that's my hunch.

    Faster than Watkins? And he wasn't on the field last year?
    Get off my lawn.
