Three Jackets leave team

Safety Jake Blackwood, veteran A-back Greg Smith, and walkon QB Bryce Dykes are leaving the football team before next season.

Blackwood was a hard hitting special teamer and son of former NFL safety Glen Blackwood. Blackwood is graduating before the season starts.

Greg Smith played wide receiver during the Gailey years and has shown flashes of skill as an A-back. Greg is transferring out of Tech. I remember Greg's first highlight as a Tech player was against either Troy or Samford in 2006 dragging multiple defenders after making a reception.

Bryce Dykes walked on to the Tech team and actually received a great deal of playing time this year as a walkon QB. Interestingly enough, his father was a Reck driver back in the day. Bryce is staying at Tech but leaving the football team.

All will be appreciated and can at least say they were featured in a video game. How many people can say that?

I would advise anyone looking for a flag football QB to actively recruit Bryce...
