Georgia Tech quaterback-turned-A-back Synjyn Days is expected to play in the season-opener against Virginia Tech, according to a report from the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. Days is behind Tevin Washington at quarterback on the depth chart, but head coach Paul Johnson indicated Days would play. "We’ll see where he plays, but I’d be surprised if he didn’t play in the game somewhere," Johnson said.
For his part, Days was enthusiastic about a chance to showcase his playmaking ability, regardless of what his role will be:
"...we want the best 11 players on the field and they said I’m one of the best 11. If it’s a special package or something, I’m just trying to do the best for the team any way possible, even if it’s special teams or holding the kick or something."
The Yellow Jackets open up the season on the road, facing Virginia Tech on Sept. 3.
