Has emerged as a leader on defense and as one of the top defensive linemen in the ACC... a hard-working, relentless defender who is coming off an outstanding sophomore season... made an immediate impact in 2012 as a true freshman... likely to see action at both tackle positions... has developed into one of Tech's top pass-rushers... came to Atlanta from Australia, where he played very little American football... was working as a lifeguard when he got the scholarship offer from Tech... a good student who has made the Dean's List and the Academic Honor Roll.

Registered 5.5 tackles for loss, two sacks, caught one interception and blocked a field goal and a PAT ... Tallied four tackles vs. Florida State in the ACC Championship Game (Dec. 6) ...

2012 (true freshman): Played in 12 games and made one start... his statistics -- five total tackles with three solo tackles -- don't reflect his impact as a rookie... had 1.5 tackles for loss, including one sack... also had one pass break-up... had a solo tackle at Maryland (Nov. 3)... started against Duke (Nov. 17) and responded with three tackles and his first career sack... had a tackle and a half-tackle for loss at Georgia (Nov. 24).
