Tech’s new punter will honor a peer every time he steps on the field.

Georgia Tech freshman punter Pressley Harvin III will wear #27 in honor of former Nebraska punter Sam Foltz. Foltz passed away in a car accident in July of last year. Harvin met Foltz at a kicking camp, where he quickly gained an admiration for him. Hopefully Harvin is able to make Foltz proud.

With all of the award watch lists that have been coming out lately, Georgia Tech has had a few players named to them, most notably Dedrick Mills being named to the Maxwell Award Watch List. Yesterday, Georgia Tech defensive end KeShun Freeman was named to the Wuerffel Award Watch List. The Wuerffel Award is also known as "College Football’s Premiere Award for Community Service." Freeman, who was named to the 2016 Allstate AFCA Good Works Team, joins 107 other student-atheltes in being named to this watch list.

At the ACC Kickoff last week, the AJC had a great idea. They asked the players they interviewed a series of questions, which will be released in the coming days. The first one they asked was, "When you think of Georgia Tech, what do you think of?" The free version of this article only includes two players’ answers, and they are definitely entertaining.

When you think of Georgia Tech, what do you think of?
