ATLANTA (AP) - David Sims is hoping a strong finish last year will carry over into his 2013 senior season at Georgia Tech.

Sims will need that momentum as he competes for a starting spot in Georgia Tech's deep group of returning running backs.

Coach Paul Johnson says Sims, Zach Laskey and Matt Connors have seen most of the snaps this spring at the B-back position which lines up behind the quarterback. Charles Perkins, who opened the 2012 season as the starter, and Broderick Snoddy have recently returned from injuries to join the competition.

Sims' top five rushing totals of the 2012 season came in his final five games. Laskey and Sims were two of four players who had more than 600 yards rushing in the Yellow Jackets' balanced running game.
