Zenon has bright future at GT

MACON, GA (WALB) -  The Georgia Tech option offense has lost two of their ground attacks in quarterback Joshua Nesbitt and running back Anthony Allen.

The Jackets believe they have plenty of talent on the roster to continue one of college football's top ground attacks.


The Jackets offense does return quarterback Tevin Washington, running backs Roddy Jones, Preston Lyons and others this fall.

One player who could work his way into the rotation is former Deerfield-Windsor running back Tony Zenon.

Zenon worked on scout teams during a redshirt year last fall and got good reviews for his work during spring.

Zenon only carried the ball twice in the spring game but rushed for 22 yards.

Head coach Paul Johnson says Tony still has room for improvement and believes he will be a contributor for the Georgia Tech football team very soon.

Paul Johnson said. "Tony is very talented young man. He has got great quickness. He can cut on a dime. He has good speed. Hopefully, he is going to mature and learn where to go and we will be able to use him some in the offense."

Georgia Tech opens their season on September 1st at home against Western Carolina.
