ACC Media Days 2012: Paul Johnson Optimistic As Preseason Approaches

Georgia Tech head football coach Paul Johnson sounds optimistic as preseason camp rapidly approaches. Johnson took the podium at ACC Media Days and praised new strength and conditioning coach John Sisk.

"I think they've really bought into what he's asking them to do,"

Johnson also talked about new special teams coach David Walkosky and expects a lot of progress in that department this season. Walkosky is the first full-time special teams coach ever hired by Johnson. The added attention to detail is paying dividends for the players who seem excited. Johnson said that before Walkosky came along players weren't that excited about playing on special teams.

"it's kind of like they've done it because I think they knew I kind of wanted them to and it was expected," he said. "Now they're more excited to do it than they have been in the past."
