Coach Paul Johnson got the performance he wanted against an FCS opponent before the Yellow Jackets host Georgia next week. Georgia Tech (7-4) used mostly third- and fourth-stringers in the second half as Johnson sought to keep top players healthy.

Jaymason Lee completed 14 of 27 passes for 205 yards and one touchdown for Alabama A&M (4-8). The Bulldogs ended the season by losing five of seven. Zach Laskey, Robert Godhigh, Days and Connors combined for five short-yardage TDs in the first half.

The Yellow Jackets scored on a 36-yard Sims run on the third play of the game and never trailed. Laskey scored on runs of 7 and 4 yards, and Godhigh had a 65-yarder in the fourth quarter after Virginia had cut the lead to 21-17.

09/26/2013 - Scouting the Georgia Tech running game: Tech has had more than 300 yards of total offense for nine straight games. They ran for 324 yards and three touchdowns, with Robert Godhigh gaining 100 and David Sims gaining 99. Tech fumbled four times, but lost only one. - The Sports Xchange

09/12/2013 - Scouting the Georgia Tech running game: Tech will try to establish the inside handoff with B-backs David Sims and Zach Laskey, then go to one of the the quick A-backs with breakaway speed. It's hard to know exactly which players are ahead at their position based on the opening-day blowout, but Laskey (51 yards, one TD), David Sims (47 yards, one TD), B.J. Bostic and Deon Hill were all effective. - The Sports Xchange

08/22/2013 - B-back David Sims (6-2, 222, Sr.) started slow last year because of an injury. Playing the position similar to fullback in the traditional offense, Sims is expected to pound the ball up the middle and draw in the defense, thus opening the outside for Tech's speed backs. Sims started getting healthy late in the year and gained 91 yards in the ACC Championship game against FSU and 99 in the Sun Bowl against Southern Cal. If healthy, he could give the team the inside presence it has missed for two years. - The Sports Xchange

08/10/2013 - OTHER GEORGIA TECH PROSPECTS WORTH WATCHING: RB David Sims (5-11, 218, 4.59)...Sims led Georgia Tech running backs in carries last season and is the feature B-back in the team's triple option offense. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com

07/20/2013 - 2013 DOAK WALKER AWARD WATCH LIST: David Sims (Sr.), Georgia Tech...Sims enters his final season with 1,368 career rushing yards, which ranks 29th on Georgia Tech's all-time rushing list. Only three active players in the ACC have rushed for more yards and his 86 career points scored rank fourth among active ACC running backs.

Last season Sims combined with fellow B-back Zach Laskey to rush for more than 1,300 yards. Sims rushed for 612 yards and four touchdowns on 135 carries in 2012. He closed the '12 season by rushing for 99 yards in Tech's Hyundai Sun Bowl victory over USC. Sims is one of four Atlantic Coast Conference running backs on the list, joining Miami's Duke Johnson, Boston College's Andre Williams and Syracuse's Jerome Smith. Sims is the sixth different Yellow Jacket to be named to a preseason watch list for a national individual award. - Georgia Tech football
