Georgia Tech backup quarterback Vad Lee only completed two of his six pass attempts for 89 yards in Saturday's win against the Boston College Eagles, one of which went for a touchdown. But beyond the numbers, Lee wanted to provide a spark for a struggling Georgia Tech team that went into this game as losers of their last three contests.
Lee knows that his playing time is really established by how he looks in practice, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution:
"I was just wanted to go out and have a great practice. I told myself every day I'm going to be great no matter what. As a team we were going through adversity and I tried to bring a role of picking us up and bringing energy to the team."
Starter Tevin Washington completed four of his eight pass attempts for 83 yards, but true to form, Georgia Tech used its powerful ground game to run the ball 76 times for 391 yards.
Lee played a key role in Tech's success in the run game, with 62 yards rushing on 11 carries, including a 24-yard touchdown run in the second quarter.
In five games this year, Lee has completed 8-of-15 passes for 220 yards and a two touchdowns while rushing 30 times for 248 yards and four touchdowns.
