True Freshman Playing Time Tracker

Updated October 14, 2019 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 Miami game on October 11, 2019.

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

      • 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.

    • Updates!

      • 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.

      • 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.
