Georgia Tech Football Depth Chart: David Scully To Start At Kicker

After earning a scholarship in the preseason, David Scully will be the starting kicker for the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets in the season opener Sept. 3 against Virginia Tech.

Scully served as backup to Justin Moore last year. Moore handled field goals and extra points while Scully was assigned to kickoffs. This year, Scully will do all three, according to coach Paul Johnson. Moore was perfect on extra points, but converted only 11 of 17 field-goal attempts last season.

Scully has practiced with the first-team kicking unit, and he attributes his improvement to hard work and "becoming comfortable with [his] body, with [his] leg." He doesn't hide his excitement about the starting job. "All summer, that's how I've been planning it," he said. "That's how I've been seeing it. That's what I want."
