Will Georgia Tech offense go global?

There are some who doubt whether the spread-option offense used by coach Paul Johnson can be as effective in his second season at Georgia Tech as it was last fall when the Yellow Jackets won nine games, including a regular-season finale over Georgia.

Running back Jonathan Dwyer, the ACC’s player of the year after rushing for 1,395 yards, expects it to only get better.

“He told us that people would say it wasn’t going to work and that only motivated us to prove people wrong,” Dwyer said.

“He’s the man. He’s the guru. Some guys are going to be coming to see what he’s doing. We have high school coaches coming from all over to see what we do.

“It might be a global thing.”
