After the Yellow Jackets defeated Kennesaw State Saturday behind the leadership of the game’s four captains — defensive tackle Djimon Brooks, wide receiver Malachi Carter, left tackle Devin Cochran and cornerback Tre Swilling — Collins tabbed them again for Saturday’s visit to No. 6 Clemson. It’s the first time at Tech that he has repeated captains for consecutive games.
The four “did such a good job leading our team, getting our team ready to go with the mindset, the attitude, the mentality,” Collins said. “And then going on the road against one of the top teams in the country, need that leadership and that focus.”
