New, 1 comment

Now that we've taken a moment to recognize all the seniors that seem to grab the headlines, let's take a look the guys that fly under the radar.

Brett Davis-USA TODAY Sports

AB Roberto Hinojosa

Roberto Hinojosa had an interesting ride to Georgia Tech. Right out of North Gwinnett High School, Hinojosa enrolled at North Florida to play soccer, where he was a part-time starter. After just one semester, he transferred out and went to Georgia College & State University while not participating in athletics. While recovering from injuries and surgery, Hinojosa took off the Spring semester of 2013 and enrolled at Georgia Tech that summer.

In Spring 2014, under the tutelage of former Tech kicker Scott Blair, Hinojosa walked onto the team as a kicker, but moved to A-back for this past year. Hinojosa finished his career with just one carry.

Roberto is earning a degree in industrial engineering.

Thank you for you hard work and dedication on the Flats, Roberto!

AB Denis Onwualu

As a senior running back at Northview High School, Onwualu earned all-conference while running for 1,000 yards. He also served two years as team captain.

In his first year at Tech, where he was a cornerback, Onwualu redshirted. The next season, Onwualu appeared in just one game, but didn't record any stats. He took a year off in 2013 before coming back for his redshirt junior season. In his senior season, Onwualu appeared in two games, but did not record any stats.

Denis is earning his degree in electrical engineering.

Thank you for your hard work and dedication on the Flats, Denis!

WR Brandon Oliver

At Lithia Springs High School, Brandon Oliver was a do-it-all kind of guy. He maintained a GPA of 3.9 or higher all throughout high school, while playing football, basketball and baseball. He also received the Scholar Award and Georgia Certificate of Merit Award.

In his time at Tech, Oliver was a key back-up at wide receiver. He redshirted his freshman year and then took the next season off. In his final three seasons, Oliver made appearances in 20 games, but didn't record any stats.

Brandon is working on a degree in business administration.

Thank you for your hard work and dedication on the Flats, Brandon!

OL Tim Seager

Tim Seager came to Georgia Tech out of Blacksburg (yes, that Blacksburg) High School. There, he served as team captain for a year and was named the Most Valuable Offensive Lineman his senior season.

He redshirted his freshman season and spent most of his time at Tech working with the scout team, but also appeared in four games throughout his career.

Tim is working on a degree in nuclear and radiological engineering.

Thank you for your hard work and dedication on the Flats, Tim!

LB Beau Hankins

Beau Hankins came to Georgia Tech as a three-star recruit out of Jackson-Olin High School in Birmingham, Ala. As a senior, Hankins totaled 122 tackles, 32 TFL, six sacks, two forced fumbles and two interceptions, earning him Alabama defensive player of the year and an Honorable Mention All-America selection. All of this happened while Hankins was apart of the National Honor Society and graduated in the top one percent of his class.

When he got to Tech, Hankins redshirted his freshman year and used the next three years to serve as a key back-up for Tech's linebackers. He finished his career with 13 games played and 19 total tackles (0.5 TFL). Unfortunately, Hankins decided to hang up his cleats following the Notre Dame game this season after he sustained a concussion.

Beau is working on a degree in business administration.

Thank you for you hard work and dedication on the Flats, Beau!

LB Rusty Scott

Rusty Scott came to Georgia Tech out of Lincoln County High School in Lincolnton, Ga., where he played linebacker and tight end. He served two seasons as team captain and was part of the team that won the region title from 2007-2009.

At Georgia Tech, Scott redshirted his freshman year, and then spent the majority of his career on the scout team while making appearances in three games throughout his career. Scott was also part of Georgia Tech's rowing club team.

Rusty is working on a degree in mechanical engineering.

Thank you for your hard work and dedication on the Flats, Rusty!

LS Sean Tobin

Sean Tobin came to Georgia Tech out of St. John Vianney High School in New Jersey, where he was considered one of the top long snappers in the country.

In his time at Tech, Tobin appeared in nine games, where he also managed to take over the starting job for a good chunk of the season. He redshirted his sophomore year before coming back as a starter for his final three seasons. Tobin also managed to get three tackles throughout his career.

Sean graduated with a degree in business administration in Dec. 2014.

Thank you for your hard work and dedication on the Flats, Sean!

Thank you once again to all of Georgia Tech's seniors for their hard work and dedication on the Flats!
