The first word Jonathan Dwyer used to describe Tashard Choice as a mentor was a surprise:

"Comical."

Dwyer, a freshman tailback, says he understands more about game plans and blocking schemes late in the season, in part due to tips from Choice.

"One thing I had to learn was just be patient and follow my blockers," Dwyer said, adding that "understanding everything ... is a lot easier than it was at the beginning of the season."

- Choice is in great position to become the first Georgia Tech player to lead the Atlantic Coast Conference in rushing in back-to-back years, and the first player from any school since Virginia's Thomas Jones in 1998-99.
