Junior lineman George Bento visits Tech


George Bento, a junior lineman from Jensen Beach, Fla., visited Georgia Tech on Nov. 19 before Tech’s last ACC game of the season against Virginia

On Thursday, Bento posted on Twitter pictures of his tour of Bobby Dodd Stadium and Tech’s statue of John Heisman. Bento also posted a picture with Tech’s freshman defensive end Tyler Vernon and freshman kicker Shea Underwood.

Bento and the Jensen Beach Falcons (3-6) finished the regular season with a five game losing streak.

In Bento’s junior highlight package, Bento proved he’s a skilled tackler on both sides of the ball. As a defender, Bento breaks tackles and maneuvers well around offensive lineman on the high school level.
