GREENSBORO, N.C. – Georgia Tech quarterback Tevin Washington was his typical positive self Sunday, giving reports on the work that he and the team have done over the summer to prepare for the season.
“I’ve been working on everything,” Washington said. “When we start the season, we’ll see how much better my game is.”
He also provided his insight into the second half of last season, in which the Yellow Jackets finished 2-5 after starting the season 6-0. Washington said the team became complacent after the strong start.
Going to play Virginia in the seventh game of the season, “We felt like we were just going to go in there and take it,” he said. “We found out the hard way” the necessity of preparing each week.
Washington said it took the team two weeks (the Jackets lost the following week to Miami) to recover, when they beat then-undefeated Clemson.
Said Washington, “I think experience-wise, it taught us a valuable lesson going into this season.”
Washington said he has been working on all manner of throws in workouts with teammates, from short- to long-range.
“I’ve just been making sure, when I get the chance to throw the football, I’m dependable, like Coach (Paul Johnson) can count on me no matter what the throw may be,” he said.
