Today, for the third straight year, Georgia Tech's football program is putting on a clinic in which they'll introduce international students to American football. The clinic is scheduled from 4:00-6:00pm today at Bobby Dodd Stadium, and is sponsored by Georgia Tech's Student Government Association.

The day's activities will begin with a welcome message and "Football 101" lesson from Coach Paul Johnson, as well as a tour of the equipment room and locker room (undoubtedly to be a source of a few classic pictures). From there, students will have the opportunity to run through the tunnel and out onto the field behind the Ramblin' Reck, where they'll participate in a series of 8 on-field football drills supervised by Georgia Tech football players and coaches. Afterwards, there will be a barbecue social for the students to meet and talk to the players and coaches.

The clinic sold out quickly and will include over 100 international students. Georgia Tech's student body includes over 4,800 international students, more than 1,500 of which are undergraduate students.
