Independence Bowl, Georgia Tech Vs. Air Force: One Last Game For 20 Tech Seniors

The majority of the Yellow Jacket players will return to work for spring practice after tomorrow's game is decided. For 20 Georgia Tech seniors, tomorrow will be the last day that they wear the gold and white.

The senior class is a surprisingly diverse group. 6 were part of the 2006 recruiting class, 3 were in the 2007 class, 5 players transfered in from another school, and the last 6 came to Tech as walk-ons.

In their time at Tech, this senior class compiled 33 wins, 20 ACC victories, 7 wins over ranked opponents, 1 ACC Championship, and the school's first ever BCS bowl game.

The class features the highest scoring pair of teammates in school history (Blair and Nesbitt), who combined for 452 points. A former walk-on (Bedford) was twice named to the All-ACC First Team. The son of a former Tech star (Cone) transfered to Tech to follow in his father's steps, earned a scholarship, and then found his into the starting lineup. A pro-style quarterback, recruited by Chan Gailey, stuck through the transition to a new coach and became the ACC's all-time rushing leader for a quarterback and has written his name all over the Tech record books. A former walk-on (Blair) ranks fifth all-time in scoring for Tech, and is the school's all-time leader in field goal percentage. 

To all 20 of the Yellow Jackets that will play in their final game tomorrow, thank you for the hard work you put in at Tech. And thank you for all the great memories you have given the fans.
