Dedrick Mills’ junior college season cut short by broken collarbone

Dedrick Mills’ season at Garden City (Kan.) Community College lasted two games.

The former Georgia Tech running back suffered a broken collarbone last month at the junior college and is out for the season.

Mills was dismissed from Georgia Tech before his sophomore season for a violation of team rules in August. Soon after the shocking news, he transferred to Garden City, a top-ranked junior college.

Mills was expected to play a major role in the Tech offense coming off his freshman season. The B-back led the Yellow Jackets in rushing with 771 yards last season and tied for third nationally among freshmen with 12 rushing touchdowns.

Mills had just seven carries for 61 yards in his two games at Garden City, both victories. He had a long run of 51 yards.
