Jonathan Dwyer Is a Man!
Georgia Tech takes some heat for running the triple option which has been considered an antiquated offense. Thing is if you have the right personnel and you can execute the option to perfection, it can be highly successful. The Yellow Jackets have proven that and they’ve gone 7-1 to start the season. Not only have they mastered the triple option but they also have elite personnel. Just check out resident strongman Jonathan Dwyer who absolutely destroyed Virginia cornerback Chris Cook on this play:
Dwyer was thought to be a preseason Heisman Trophy candidate but his campaign dropped off because he hasn’t racked up the gaudy stats on a consistent basis. Since he plays fullback instead of quarterback or tailback in the system, he doesn’t get as many touchdowns as the other players, and they also spread the ball around too much. Still, Dwyer is highly ranked amongst running back prospects for the NFL. It’s easy to see why.
