Technical Tidbits 10/14: Georgia Tech Football Loses Yondjouen for the Season

A tough loss for an already thin defensive line.

Georgia Tech’s defensive line depth is going to be tested as the team enters the second half of the season. DL Sylvain Yondjouen will be out for the rest of the year, this follows the announcement of DL T.K. Chimedza being sidelined a few weeks ago. Yondjouen was having a decent sophomore campaign up to this point, appearing in three games and recording five tackles. Luckily for Yondjouen (and all other players missing a significant amount of time) this year will not count towards the eligibility limit. Get well soon, Sylvain!

The Georgia Tech basketball team made waves earlier this year when they announced that Election Day would be an off day so players could go vote. This soon turned into a national movement, with the NCAA eventually making November 3 a day off for all sports in all divisions. Georgia Tech’s Malachi Rice, and other student-athletes around the nation, are not putting an end to their efforts after getting Election Day off. As Rice wrote in the article above, there will be a constant push to get young people involved in the electoral process. You can follow along with Rice and other student-athletes on Instagram.

It is strange to say that after just four games, the Georgia Tech volleyball season is almost over. The Jackets have a two-game series this week at Wake Forest, and a two-game series against Clemson in Atlanta to close out the season. So far, the Jackets are 3-1 on their conference-only schedule. Today, Tech will face the Demon Deacons at 6 p.m. ET on the ACC Network. Tomorrow, first serve will be at 4 p.m. ET, also on the ACC Network. Wake Forest is currently 0-2, so I’m expecting big things from the Jackets the next couple of days.

While Julia Bergmann is only a sophomore, she plays like a senior. Bergmann was given the ACC Co-Player of the Week award for her work in last week’s two-game series against Florida State. This is another accolade for the young star, Bergmann was 2019’s ACC Freshman of the Year and on the 2019 All-ACC First Team. Keep it up, Julia!

It doesn’t top Pressley Harvin III’s fake punt against Miami last season, but play number three on the video above was exceptionally crafty.

Question of the Day: What do you think about the Georgia Tech defensive line so far?
