Georgia Tech needs one more victory to become bowl eligible after missing the postseason a year ago. The Yellow Jackets secured a huge victory this past Saturday for their fifth win of the season. And senior QB Justin Johnson seems determined to play in a bowl game his final season.
Thomas accounted for 459 total yards and four touchdowns against Duke to power Georgia Tech to a 38-35 victory to earn the Uplifting Athletes Player of the Week.
In his next-to-last home game, Thomas completed 10 of 14 passes for 264 yards and a pair of touchdowns and rushed for 195 yards on 17 carries with a pair of scores including an 82-yard TD scamper in the first quarter.
His most important play, though, was probably his last one when Thomas broke free for a 50-yard run late in the game on a third-and-17 play with the Yellow Jackets clinging to a three-point lead.
