Georgia Tech is working Ray Beno and Zach Krish at center in case Sean Bedford, who has started the previous 18 games, can’t play against Wake Forest on Saturday.
Bedford left the N.C. State game in the first quarter after he was kicked in the shin. He wasn’t able to participate in practice on Monday. Jay Finch, the No. 2 center, wasn’t able to play on Saturday because of a hamstring and didn’t practice on Monday. Coach Paul Johnson said he’s not sure if Finch will be able to play against the Deacons.
Beno, a redshirt freshman who is naturally a guard, and Krish, a redshirt senior, played center in the 45-28 loss to the Wolfpack. Beno said that he didn’t change too many line calls against N.C. State, which held Tech to 247 yards rushing, 98 yards below its season average before that game.
Should Beno start, the interior of Tech’s line will feature a sophomore, guard Omoregie Uzzi and two redshirt freshmen, Beno and guard Will Jackson.
