NASHVILLE, Tenn.

Four Southern Crescent area Georgia Tech football players — one of whom calls Clayton County home — finished a 7-6 2013 campaign with a 25-17 loss to Ole Miss in the Music City Bowl in Nashville last week.

The loss was the Yellow Jackets’ second straight, and third in its last four games, but it included an impressive performance from sophomore D.J. White. The former Union Grove standout recorded 13 tackles, two forced fumbles and an interception, in addition to a handful of pass breakups. It was truly a breakout game for White and possibly a sign of things to come for the Tech defensive back in 2014.

The game also marked the end of former North Clayton High standout Emmanuel Dieke’s career on The Flats.
