Player Overview

In any option offense, the run attack is main focus of the team's play calling, especially in Georgia Tech's triple option formation. A former quarterback, Sims transitioned to the B-back position a year ago, joining A-back Orwin Smith in the backfield. In Paul Johnson's offense, the role of the B-back is generally a runner with fullback size, but the speed of a running back, a role Anthony Allen and Jonathan Dwyer filled during their time in Atlanta. And last season, Sims finished second on the team in rushing behind quarterback Tevin Washington with 698 yards and seven touchdowns on the ground, averaging 5.2 yards per carry. He was a three-star quarterback out of South Carolina and spurned an offer from the Gamecocks to play in the Yellow Jackets' option offense. However with Washington entrenched as the starter, Sims moved to the B-back role last season in order to get on the field. It was a tough transition as he was forced to learn on the fly, but with a full year under his belt, Sims, who spent the entire offseason studying the position, could be one of the top rushers in the ACC.--Dane Brugler
