Monash Warriors player Adam Gotsis who is in his Sophomore Season with the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets, at the starting Nose Tackle position, has continued to show improvement on his rookie season which saw him avoid being red-shirted.
Gotsis has been a workhorse up front for the Yellow Jackets and credits his Defensive Line coach Mike Pelton for getting him to where he is today, and also getting his Yellow Jacket teammates in position to make plays.
While the Yellow Jackets are on a 2 game losing streak after consecutive losses to Miami and BYU (both away games) he is hoping they can get back on track when they host Syracuse this Saturday on Hall of Fame Weekend/Heroes’ Day.
On a report in the ‘Sting Daily’ (Article can be found here) Gotsis said that his Defense could not get adjusted to the speed of the BYU offense which caused some issues throughout the game. “I think a lot of it was just us not getting lined up, not getting the calls in time,” Gotsis said. “It was kind of what we expected them to do, the same sort of thing that we planned for.
“I think the speed was definitely a bit faster than last week against Miami but I thought we made good adjustments and started getting the calls in toward the end,” he added. “It was tough there at the start and then we just had to figure out adjustments, which we did at the end, but it was a little too late.”
Adam had one of his best games of his career against BYU including 4 TFL (tackles for loss) for total -19 yards and 2 sacks (Both career highs). Gotsis now leads his team totals this season in TFL’s (8.0) and Sacks (3.0).
The Warriors look forward to seeing much more of Adam for the remainder of the season and look forward to the improvements he makes.
