Defensive Overview: The Yellow Jackets return seven starters on defense where they look improve on last years (7-6) record. Henderson and Parker anchor a young but experienced defense line, while the secondary seems to be in good shape three of four starters. This unit will improve as the season goes on.
Special Teams Overview: Special teams welcome redshirt freshmen Travis Bell, who opted to play football over soccer scholarship offers from Clemson. The punting game though inconsistent last fall looks to improve with the Kyle Belcher challenging for the position.
The Yellow Jackets will return to a bowl game this year if... Reggie Ball and T.J. Daniels have productive seasons. The defense, though young, looks to be vastly improved.
