Florida State vs. Georgia Tech: Kicking competition ongoing for Yellow Jackets

The Yellow Jackets still have not decided on a kicker for Saturday's game.

Georgia Tech has already played 12 games this season, yet they still haven't been able to find a reliable kicker.

Justin Moore, David Scully and Chris Tanner have all taken turns at the position, but none has been dependable enough to keep it. As a result, the Yellow Jackets have re-opened the kicking competition as they prepare to face the Florida State Seminoles in the ACC Championship Game (courtesy of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution):

"I'd love for one guy just to be heads above everybody else, but it's not that way right now," special-teams coordinator David Walkosky said."Scully's been the most consistent on kickoffs this season, but they've all had their share of not good enough's. We've got to put it all together at one time."

Scully is 3-7 on kicks, including two misses between on kicks between 20-29 yards. Tanner is 3-4 while Moore is 1-2.

No matter who comes out on top of the competition at practice this week, Georgia Tech fans have every reason to dread any field goal attempt against the Seminoles on Saturday.
