Technical Tidbits 3/10: Alvarado Receives All-ACC Honors

Alvarado earns All-ACC honors; offensive line news and more.

NCAA Basketball: Pittsburgh at Georgia Tech Brett Davis-USA TODAY Sports

Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets basketball player Jose Alvarado received third-team All-ACC honors. Alvarado had a pretty good season, despite missing several games due to injury. As the article points out, he averaged 16.1 points, 4.3 assists, and 2.4 steals per game in ACC play. The article mentions other Yellow Jackets who had noteworthy seasons, including Michael Devoe, James Banks, and Moses Wright. Congratulations to all of them for a hard-fought season.

After reading this article I have to admit that I feel more reassured about the Yellow Jackets’ offensive line, though it’s still early, with spring practice just having started. Graduate transfer Ryan Johnson looks to be a significant leader for the unit and one of the team’s important additions during the offseason. The article points out that Johnson hopes to play at the next level and figures the coaching staff at Tech can best help him in his preparations for the NFL. Good luck to him in the upcoming season; I am definitely looking forward to seeing how the offensive line fares come next season.

Here’s more offensive line news, this time courtesy of the AJC. Kenny Cooper who was redshirted last season due to an injury is set to return for another senior season. As the article mentioned, last year was supposed to be his last but the injury occurred only four games into the season. Cooper started two years under Paul Johnson and will likely start again for his second season under Geoff Collins; though William Lay may also be a potential starter. The offensive line is a key unit to how Tech fares next season; hopefully they get all the right pieces in place during the offseason.

Most everyone knows by now that former Tech quarterback Lucas Johnson announced he’ll be transferring to San Diego State as pointed out in this AJC article. All the best to him in his future endeavors.
