Virginia Vs. Georgia Tech: Zach Laskey Continues Strong Play While Backups Get Reps In Blowout

Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets B-back Zach Laskey continued to show he will be a force to be reckoned with in the 2012 season, racking up a productive day against the Virginia Cavaliers in Georgia Tech's blowout victory over Virginia.

With David Simms on the sideline, Laskey racked up 43 yards on the ground, but it was his lone reception — which went for 70 yards and a touchdown — that had many talking.

"[Laskey]'s a full-steam ahead (player) and they get you on those big splits," Virginia coach Mike London told the Atlanta Journal Constitution. "We didn't do a good enough job, obviously, for that many touches and opportunities that he got today."

When it was clear that the Yellow Jackets were well on their way to victory, Laskey was pulled, giving B-back backups Broderick Snoddy and Matt Connors a chance to shine, as well.

Connors finished the game with 43 yards and Snoddy finished with 23 on the ground, in relief of Laskey, who was available to go despite an apparent shoulder injury, but was kept out with the game already decided, according to the AJC.
