* 2008 ACC Rookie of the Week (Oct. 5)
A fundamentally sound true freshman who was a key factor as the back-up quarterback... the top back-up to Josh Nesbitt at quarterback and started one game while Nesbitt sat out with an injury... owned a solid pass efficiency rating (194.02) and completed 62.5 percent of his pass attempts... responsible for five touchdowns... rushed for three TDs and threw for two more... came off the bench in the fourth quarter for a few plays at 13th-ranked Georgia and led the Jackets to a crucial first down that moved the chains... played in the second half vs. Miami (Nov. 20) and rushed for 47 yards on 10 carries... saw significant second-half action at North Carolina (Nov. 8)... came off the bench to play most of the second half in the win over Florida State (Nov. 1) after Nesbitt left the game with an ankle injury... made his first career start vs. Duke (Oct. 4)... his 230 yards passing against the Blue Devils were the most ever by a Tech quarterback in his first career start... was 9-of-13 passing against Duke with all nine passes caught by Demaryius Thomas... connected with Thomas on an 88-yard touchdown pass -- the third-longest pass play in Tech history... also rushed for a touchdown against the Blue Devils... named the ACC Rookie of the Week for his efforts... played almost the entire game vs. Mississippi State (Sept. 20)... ran for a 25-yard touchdown on a 4th-and-3 option play against the Bulldogs... threw his first career TD pass with with a 21-yard strike to Thomas... did not play at Boston College (Sept. 6) or Virginia Tech (Sept. 13)... made an impressive career debut vs. Jacksonville State (Aug. 28)... rushed nine times for 51 yards, had a long rush of 43 yards, and scored his first career touchdown against the Gamecocks... completed the first three passing attempts of his career... has a great understanding of the offense after playing it part of his high school career... a tough, hard-nosed player who took command in the huddle from Day One... a dual-threat quarterback, good at improvising when play breaks down... does a good job of reading the end on the option... fundamentally-sound son of a football coach.
