Georgia Tech vs. Duke: 3 questions with Ricky Jeune

Three questions with Georgia Tech wide receiver Ricky Jeune ahead of Saturday’s game against Duke at Bobby Dodd Stadium:

Q: We’ve seen the offensive line improve with its pass blocking. Is that a positive knowing that when Justin Thomas drops back he will have time?

A: Definitely. We know if we give Justin some time he will find an open receiver. Good job for the O-line for picking it up. They’ve really been working hard.

Q: In terms of your blocking, coach (Paul) Johnson said you’ve been picking it up and that you had a couple of key blocks in the Georgia Southern game. Do you feel like that’s progressing?

A: I always go out there, try make the good block, spring Justin. Whether it’s Justin, Dedrick (Mills) or the A-backs. I always try to go out there and make the good block.

Q: I imagine it helps seeing Brad (Stewart) establish himself on the other side.

A: Yeah. Brad’s a sleeper. No one thinks of Brad as a deep threat, but he’s making some plays. He’s very shifty. He makes some big catches.

It’s great to see him making plays and having fun. Our goal as a receiver group is anytime the ball is going our way to make the play.
