True Freshman Playing Time Tracker

Updated January 8, 2020 by Karl Hess

We at HOOS Place are excited to present our True Freshman Playing Time Tracker for the 2019 football season. Our aim is to track the number of true freshman playing throughout the football season and the number of games played by each as well. With the new redshirt rules in college football that allow a player to maintain their redshirt year by playing four or fewer games, there's an added importance in tracking the number of games played by the true freshman for those fans into the roster management aspect of college football. We also hope to quantify an individual player's contributions in the games they play as well. 

Our source of information will be the game participation reports published by the school itself and my own observations as the game participation reports are not always entirely accurate.

Note that a player appears on the tracker when they earn a jersey number.

The data is current as of the Florida game on December 30, 2019.

    • 6-1 225 lbs. Fr 2019 Class 247 Comp: 3 Games: 14Scholarship
    • Updates!

      • Florida: With Jordan Mack out of the Orange Bowl due to injury, Jackson got the start against the Gators. He finished the game with 4 tackles (2 solo, 2 assisted).

        Jackson played in all 14 games for UVA this season. 

        For the season, Jackson made 28 tackles (11 solo, 17 assisted). He had 1 tackle for loss and 0.5 sacks during the season as well.

      • Clemson: With Jordan Mack not fully healthy, Jackson saw considerable playing time against the Tigers. He responded with 9 total tackles (7 assisted, 2 solo) and 0.5 tackles for loss. Jackson's 9 tackles were good for fourth on the team in the ACC Championship game.

         

      • Virginia Tech: Having played against the Hokies, Jackson played in each of UVA's 12 regular season games. He recorded one solo tackle against Virginia Tech. He also had a facemask penalty that will undoubtedly serve as a good learning experience.

        On the season, Jackson now has 15 total tackles (7 solo, 8 assisted), 0.5 tackles for loss, and 0.5 sacks.

      • Liberty: Jackson continued special teams duties against Liberty. But he also saw action from the base defense late in the game. 

        It was another productive appearance for Jackson who made 2 tackles (2 assisted) in limited time. He also picked up 0.5 sacks during his snaps on the defense. It was the first sack / tackle for loss in Jackson's UVA career.

        On the season, Jackson now has 14 tackles (6 solo, 8 assisted) and 0.5 sacks / tackles for loss.

      • Georgia Tech: With Jordan Mack back in action for the entire game, Jackson saw a reduced role against his hometown Yellow Jackets. He didn't record any stats in the game.

      • UNC: With Jordan Mack suspended for the first half due to a targeting call late against Louisville last week, Jackson earned his first career start for the Hoos.

        Jackson is a different type of player than Mack but he clearly looks the part on the field.

        Against the Tarheels, Mack chipped in 3 tackles (all solo).

        For the season, Jackson has 12 tackles (6 solo, 6 assisted). 

      • Louisville: No change against Louisville - Nick Jackson is an integral part of UVA's special teams units.

        After Jordan Mack was ejected in the third quarter for targeting, Jackson entered the base defense as Mack's replacement. Unexpectedly seeing the most playing time of his career, it was no surprise that things were a bit of a trial by fire for Jackson. But he did not looked lost on the field with the first team defense.

        Jackson finished the game against Louisville with 4 tackles (1 solo, 3 assisted). On the season, Jackson now has 9 tackles (3 solo, 6 assisted).

      • Duke: Jackson was a busy man against Duke as he played on special teams and some inside backer during the 4th quarter. 

        Jackson accounted for 3 tackles (1 solo, 2 assisted) against the Blue Devils. For the season, Jackson now has 5 tackles (2 solo, 3 assisted).

      • Miami: Jackson continues to see special teams duty for UVA. Against Miami, he did not record any stats.

      • Notre Dame: Jackson continues to be a key special team member for UVA. Against Notre Dame, he did not record any stats in the box score.

        This was Jackson's 5th game on the season. He will not be eligible for a redshirt this year.

      • Old Dominion: Jackson continues to be an integral member of special teams this season. He did not record any stats against ODU.

      • Florida State: Jackson logged time on special teams again against the Noles. He's an integral member of the kick coverage units for UVA. He did not record any statistics in this game.

      • William & Mary - Jackson continued to play on special teams coverage units. But he also saw extended playing time from scrimmage in the second half against William & Mary. Jackson was able to record his first career tackle against the Tribe. He finished the game with 2 total tackles (1 solo, 1 assisted).

      • Pitt - Jackson made his career debut in the season opener versus Pitt. He played on the kickoff coverage unit on special teams but did not record any statistics in the box score.

    • 5-10 225 lbs. Fr 2019 Class 247 Comp: 0 Games: 13Walk-on
    • Updates!

      • Florida: Like always, Anthony handled the long snap duties for the punt coverage team in the Orange Bowl. He had another clean effort on the night.

        Anthony played in 13 of 14 games during his first year. He did a solid job as the long snapper on the punt team. You rarely, if ever, heard his name called by the announcers during the season. That's exactly what you want from your long snapper.

      • Clemson: Against Clemson, Anthony continued his season of clean snaps as the punt team's long snapper. 

      • Virginia Tech: The Hokies didn't get a punt block, so it was a successful day for the punt team. Anthony's snaps helped make that happen.

      • Liberty: More quality long snapping from Anthony on the punt team against Liberty. He's doing his job well this year.

      • Georgia Tech: Anthony had another quiet game handling the long snap duties for the punt team. And that's just the way we like his position to be (quiet).

      • UNC: Another quiet night of snapping on punts for Anthony. And that's just how we like it.

      • Louisville: Anthony continues to be UVA's long snapper on the punt coverage team.

      • Duke: Anthony continues to handle the snapping for UVA's punt team. We've yet to hear Anthony's name during a game and that's exactly what you want from a long snapper.

      • Miami: Anthony has cemented his role as UVA's long snapper on punts. Miami was his fifth game played this season, so he'll be ineligible for a redshirt.

      • Notre Dame: Anthony handled the long snapping duties for punts again. We haven't heard his name yet this season and that's exactly what you want from his position.

      • Old Dominion: Against the Monarchs, Anthony handled the long snapping duties on the punt team.

      • Florida State: Anthony handled the long snapping duties on punts for the Hoos against FSU. You probably didn't notice him during the broadcast and that's exactly what you want in his role!

      • Pitt - Anthony, wearing number 61 as a placeholder, made his career debut in the season opener at Pitt. He shared long snapping duties with redshirt freshman Lee Dudley.

    • 99 Jowon BriggsDT
    • 6-1 295 lbs. Fr 2019 Class 247 Comp: 4 Games: 13Scholarship
    • Updates!

      • Florida: Briggs provided defensive depth in the Orange Bowl against Florida. He factored into the defensive line rotation against the Gators but did not record any stats during the game.

        As a first year, Briggs played in 13 of 14 games.

        Briggs finished his freshman season with 19 tackles (5 solo, 14 assisted). He also contributed 3 tackles for loss and 1 QB sack.

      • Clemson: Briggs was in the defensive line rotation against the Tigers but did not record any stats in the game.

      • Liberty: Briggs received considerable playing time on UVA's defensive line against Liberty. He did not record any stats in the game, however.

        Briggs still has 19 total tackles on the season (5 solo, 4 assisted), 3 tackles for loss, and 1 sack.

      • Georgia Tech: Despite not starting against the Yellow Jackets, Briggs was heavily involved in the UVA defensive line rotation. He did not record any stats in the game.

      • UNC: The Hoos started in a 3 man front against the Heels. As a result, Briggs found himself back in the starting lineup. 

        The first-year defensive lineman had perhaps the best game of his young career against UNC.

        He accounted for 4 tackles (2 solo, 2 assisted) and his first career sack.

        On the season, Briggs now has 19 total tackles (5 solo, 14 assisted), 3 tackles for loss, and 1 sack.

      • Louisville: For the second game in a row, UVA opened play on defense with only two linemen. As a result, Briggs was a reserve for the second time in his young career.

        For the game, Briggs scored 4 tackles (1 solo, 3 assisted). On the season, Briggs has 15 tackles (3 solo, 12 assisted). Briggs also has 2 tackles for loss.

        His 15 tackles are the second most on UVA's defensive line behind senior Eli Hanback's 17.

      • Duke: The game against the Blue Devils was the first in Briggs's career that he did not start on UVA's defensive line. The Hoos opened with a two man line and Briggs was the odd man out. 

        Briggs was in the mix when the Hoos played a three man line. Briggs also saw extensive action during the 4th quarter. He was not credited with any tackles during the game.

        Also, this happened...

         

      • Miami: As is customary, Briggs got the start in the middle of the UVA defensive line. He was active against the Canes. He picked up 2 assisted tackles including 0.5 tackles for loss.

        On the season, Briggs now has 11 total tackles (9 assisted, 2 solo) and 2 tackles for loss.

      • Notre Dame: Briggs again started for the Hoos on defense. He had an uneven day as Notre Dame's talented, veteran offensive line did a good job of introducing him to big time football. Still, Briggs did get credit for 1 assisted tackle. 

        That brings his tackle total to 9 on the season.

        This was also Brigg's 5th game of the year. Not surprisingly, he's not going to redshirt.

      • Old Dominion: As usual, Briggs started in the middle of UVA's defensive line against ODU. He did not record any stats against the Monarchs, but he provided penetration on several occasions throughout the game. 

      • Florida State: Briggs made his third start in as many games this season. He picked up 2 assisted tackles while playing an important role in the Hoos' defense that limited the nations' 4th leading rusher heading into the game (Cam Akers - 309 yards) to only 83 yards on 18 carries. Briggs now has 8 tackles on the season (2 solo, 6 assisted).

      • William & Mary - Briggs made his second start in as many games during his freshman campaign. Against the Tribe, Briggs recorded his first career tackle and tackle for loss. He ended the game as the Hoos' third leading tackler with a total of 6 tackles (2 solo, 4 assisted). Briggs also contributed 1.5 tackles for loss.

      • Pitt - Briggs made his career debut in the season opener at Pitt. As expected, he started in the middle of the Wahoos' defensive line and played heavily throughout the game. He did not record any statistics in the box score, however.

      • Miami: Hollins continued his role on special teams against Miami which included his first career tackle (solo).

        He also carried the ball twice for seven yards. Unfortunately, Hollins second carry resulted in a fumble recovered by Miami on their own 20-yard line. The play looked to be poised for a nice gain had Hollins not had the ball poked away as he was going through the line of scrimmage.

        On the season, Hollins now has 13 carries for 85 yards, and 2 touchdowns.

      • Notre Dame: Hollins continues to be a core special teams member for the Hoos. He did not log any stats in the box score.

        Against Notre Dame, Hollins played in his 5th game of the season. He will not have the possibility of earning a redshirt this season.

      • Old Dominion: Hollins continues to see action on special teams. He did not record any stats in the box score versus ODU, however.

      • Florida State: It was back to special teams duty for Hollins against the Seminoles. He didn't play from scrimmage this game. On special teams, Hollins did not record any statistics. 

      • William & Mary - Hollins picked up his first career carry against the Tribe and it was one to remember. During the opening drive of the third quarter on second and goal from the William & Mary 9-yard line, Hollins took the handoff and scampered to the end zone for a touchdown. The touchdown and extra point would extend UVA's lead to 42-3. That wasn't his only impressive run of the evening as Hollins added a 1-yard touchdown run later in the game and also unleashed an impressive 37 yard run. Hollins finished the game as the Hoos' leading rusher, gaining 78 yards on 11 carries (7.1 yards per carry). He finished the game with 2 touchdowns as well.

         

      • Pitt - Hollins made his career debut in the season opener at Pitt. He played on the kickoff coverage unit on special teams but did not record any statistics in the box score.

        Wicks played in 10 of 14 games during his first season at UVA. 

        On special teams, Wicks made 3 tackles (2 solo, 1 assisted). 

        As a receiver, Wicks made 3 catches for 61 yards during the season. His long reception was for 44 yards. It went for his only TD catch of the year.

      • Clemson: Despite playing special teams and appearing in the wide receiver rotation against Clemson, Wicks did not record any stats in the ACC Championship Game.

      • Virginia Tech: Wicks pulled double duty against the Hokies playing at both wide receiver and on special teams. And while Wicks didn't make any catches, he did chip in with an assisted tackle.

        For the season, Wicks now has 3 total tackles on the season (2 solo, 1 assisted). 

      • Liberty: It was a special afternoon for Wicks. During the 4th quarter, Wicks hauled in a 44 yard pass from QB Brennan Armstrong that resulted in the first TD catch of his career. It was also a career long catch for Wicks. For the game, he caught 2 balls for 49 yards and 1 touchdown.

        On the season, Wicks now has 3 catches for 61 yards and a touchdown.

      • UNC: Wicks played on both offense and special teams against UNC. He did not register any stats against the Heels.

        This was game number 5 played for Wicks. He will not be eligible for a redshirt this season.

      • Louisville: Since returning from injury, Wicks has factored heavily in UVA's rotation at wide receiver. That did not change against Louisville. He did not record any stats in the box score, however.

        The was the 4th game played on the season for Wicks. If he plays in another game this season, he won't be able to claim a redshirt.

      • Duke: Wicks returned to action against Duke after missing several weeks due to an injury. 

        Against the Blue Devils he also made his first career reception. It went for 12 yards.

        Wicks also picked up his first career tackle as he made the stop when Duke intercepted Lindell Stone in the 4th quarter.

      • William & Mary - Wicks again saw playing time against the Tribe but did not record any statistics in the box score.

      • Pitt - Wicks made his career debut in the opener versus the Panthers. He factored into the wide receiver rotation throughout the game but did not record any statistics.

    • Updates!

      • Florida: In the Orange Bowl, Dixon played on special teams. He did not record any stats during the game.

        For the season, Dixon played in 9 of 14 games.

        Dixon concluded his freshman season with 3 tackles (2 solo, 1 assisted).

      • Clemson: Thrust into action due to UVA's depleted secondary depth while also playing special teams, Dixon made 1 tackle (solo) against Clemson.

      • Virginia Tech: Dixon is in the mix on special teams and at safety in UVA's depleted defensive backfield. Against Virginia Tech, he did not record any stats for the game.

      • Liberty: Dixon played in the UVA base defense at the end of the game versus Liberty. He played one of the two safety positions for the Hoos. He picked up a solo tackle on the next to last play of the game.

        It was Dixon's first career solo tackle and the second total tackle of his career.

      • Georgia Tech: Besides any special teams action, Dixon is now seeing spot time in UVA's defense due to the injury bug plaguing the Wahoo secondary. Against the Yellow Jackets, Dixon made one tackle (assisted tackle). It was his first career tackle and was a pretty nice hit to boot.

        Because this was Dixon's fifth game on the season, he won't be able to take a redshirt this year.

      • Georgia Tech: Besides any special teams action, Dixon is now seeing spot time in UVA

      • UNC: Dixon made a surprise appearance on defense late in the game against UNC. He was used mostly to blitz Sam Howell and the Carolina offense. Dixon did not record any stats during the game.

        This was game number 4 played for Dixon. With one more game played, he will not be able to use this season as a redshirt season. And with UVA's depleted depth in the defensive backfield, it's a good bet that Dixon sees action in at least one more game.

      • Old Dominion: Dixon continues to contribute to special teams for UVA. Against ODU, he did not record any stats in the box score.

      • Florida State: Dixon contributed as a member of the kick coverage units against Florida State. He did not record any stats in the box score.

      • Louisville: Clary continued to make his mark on special teams for UVA against the Cards. He didn't record any stats in the box score, however. 

        The was Clary's 5th game of the season, so he's surpassed the threshold for maintaining a redshirt this year.

        Unfortunately, Clary was also injured covering a punt in the game. He left the field and did not return.

      • Duke: Against Duke, Clary saw the most extended playing time of his young career. He continued his role on special teams. But he also logged some plays from the base defense during the 4th quarter of the UVA win. Clary likely learned a lesson as a double move from a Duke receiver burned him for a touchdown. Clary also made a nice stop on a 4th down conversion attempt by Duke keeping the Blue Devil player from reaching the 1st down line.

        For the game, Clary finished with 4 tackles (2 solo, 2 assisted). These were the first tackles of Clary's young career.

      • Miami: The Florida native made his third career appearance for the Hoos at Miami. Clary saw action on special teams but did not record any stats.

      • Notre Dame: Cleary made his second appearance of the season against the Fighting Irish. He was active on special teams and nearly recorded his first career tackle.

        He also returned 8 kicks for a total of 206 yards. Milledge's long kick return on the season went for 41 yards.

      • Clemson: With Joe Reed nursing an injured hip, Milledge handled the kick return duties against Clemson. He made 4 kick returns for a total of 76 yards (19 yard average) with a long of 28 yards.

      • Virginia Tech: Milledge made his second appearance of the season against the Hokies. He didn't factor into the offense or kick return game, but he did record a big tackle for UVA's punt coverage defense. The tackle of VT's Tayvion Robinson helped blunt the momentum that the Hokies were gaining in their punt and kick opportunities.

        This was Milledge's first career tackle. It was of the assisted variety per the score keeper.

         

      • Liberty: Milledge made his UVA debut against Liberty and he did not disappoint. Handling the kick return duties for a banged-up Joe Reed, Milledge burst onto the scene with 4 kick returns for 130 yards (32.5 average). His long return on the day was 41 yards.

        Wahoo nation certainly took notice!

        He did not record any stats during the year.

      • Virginia Tech: Williams is not credited as playing in the game's participation report, but I believe I saw his number 90 on the field during special teams action. In any event, he did not record any stats during the game.

      • Liberty: Williams made his UVA debut against Liberty. He played corner for the Hoos during the last drive of the game.

        Williams did not record any stats but he was active. Three balls came the way of the receiver he was covering. One was completed for a first down on a 4th down conversion for the Flames. Williams had a shot at the tackle but did not convert. The other two plays were incompletions with Williams providing excellent coverage. The first of those was against star Liberty receiver Antonio Gandy-Golden.

      • Virginia Tech: UVA's participation report credits Duenkel with playing against the Hokies but accumulating no stats. To be honest, I didn't seem him play but it's certainly possible that the participation report is correct.

        In any event, I've given Duenkel credit for his second game as a Hoo. He'll still maintain his redshirt for this season even if he were to play against Clemson and the bowl opponent.

      • Duke: Duenkel made his career debut against Duke in relief of Brian Delaney. He converted the PAT after UVA's last touchdown and followed it with a touchback on the ensuing kickoff.
