Jemea Thomas Named ACC Co-Defensive Back of the Week

Austin Foote/The Technique

Thomas had a pretty ridiculous game on Saturday, and he got accolades to go along with it.

Saturday's game was ugly -- a win, but ugly -- but there was undoubtedly one bright spot for Georgia Tech. DB Jemea Thomas was all over the field for the entire game, getting involved in plays left and right and acting as a major leader in Georgia Tech's defense. On Monday, he was named ACC Co-Defensive Back of the Week alongside CB Kendall Fuller of Virginia Tech. It's the second straight week Georgia Tech's defense has had a defensive "Player of the Week" recipient after Quayshawn Nealy was named Co-Linebacker of the Week last week.

The media release from the ACC is below.

CO-DEFENSIVE BACK -Jemea Thomas, Georgia Tech, Sr-R., S, 5-10, 195, Queensland, Ga.
Thomas recorded career highs with 15 tackles and 12 solo tackles, leading the Georgia Tech defense in Saturday's 35-25 ACC win at Virginia. Thomas' 15 tackles were the most by a Yellow Jacket since 2009, and his 12 solo stops were the most by a Georgia Tech player since 2003. Thomas also matched a career high with two pass break-ups against the Cavaliers.
