Georgia Tech 2010's All-Decade Team: Defense

Matthew McGavic

With the second decade of the millennium coming to a close in just a couple days, thus ends another decade of Georgia Tech Football. The 2010's were an era that featured many peaks & valleys, including a pair of ACC Championship game berths, an Orange Bowl victory, and the Miracle on Techwood Drive. With that being said, SI's Jackets Maven is unveiling the Georgia Tech 2010's All-Decade Team.
