Georgia Tech Vs. Maryland: Saturday's game a homecoming for Jeremiah Attaochu

Sam Sharpe-US PRESSWIRE

Georgia Tech linebacker Jeremiah Attaochu, a D.C. native, will feel right at home when the Yellow Jackets head north to College Park Saturday for their game against the Maryland Terrapins.

It'll be a homecoming of sorts for Georgia Tech junior linebacker Jeremiah Attaochu when the Rambling Wreck roll into Maryland's Byrd Stadium. The native of Washington, D.C. will have lots of friends and family in the crowd cheering him on.

Atlanta Journal-Constitution reporter Ken Sugiura reports that Attaochu is hunting for extra tickets from his teammates to give to family and friends, adding that the standout linebacker has about 25-30 people hoping to come see him play. The linebacker was born in Ibadan, Nigeria, and his family immigrated to the United States when he was just eight years old. Attaochu attended Archbishop Carroll High School in Washington, also the alma mater of three-time Pro Bowl defensive tackle Jamal Williams.

Although the Yellow Jackets (3-5, 2-3 in ACC play) have struggled somewhat this season, Attaochu has been a bright spot. The linebacker has rolled up 31 tackles (23 solo) and notched a pair of sacks. Georgia Tech will need great defense from Attaochu and his teammates to pick up a win against Maryland (4-4, 2-2).
