Georgia Tech is within striking distance of Michigan in the annual EDSBS Charity Bowl

Every year, Every Day Should Be Saturday runs a charity bowl for New American Pathways, a refugee resettlement program in metro Atlanta that helps people who have literally nothing. These refugees are in a strange and foreign country usually fleeing some dictator and/or poverty and war and NAP is there for them as soon as they set foot in Georgia until they get jobs and citizenship. They help provide housing, clothing, English lessons, cultural acclimation, etc. They do wonderful work and are certainly worthy of your donation.

If that hasn’t convinced you yet, the donations are by school, with Michigan having won this every single year they’ve ever done it. We’re in striking distance of them, in what would be a massive upset. So if this sounds like something you would like to support, whether it’s $10 a month or a small to massive one-time gift, head on over, and give in the name of Georgia Tech... and also to spite the Michigan Men who all think they’re superior to you.

So break out your engineering money cannons and head on over to New American Pathways and give in the name of the Ramblin’ Wreck here. Everybody always talks trash about your starting salaries when you get out. It’s time to put your money where your mouth is.

This charity is well worth the financial commitment to support if you have been looking for somewhere to donate regularly, especially in this year of 2018.

Taquon Marshall hoping to increase completion percentage

The second-year starter has already made noticeable strides in improving his passing game, according to his teammates. After completing a school-worst 37.1% of his passes a season ago, the senior has spent most of the offseason working on mechanics, such as his footwork.

In Saturday’s scrimmage, Marshall completed 10-13 passes.

‘Those inconsistencies test Johnson’s patience. “The stats were better,” Johnson said, referring to the most recent scrimmage, before adding “but it’s still a work in progress.”

Hence the continued emphasis on fundamentals.

”The mechanical stuff I’m talking about is like if it’s a three-step drop, take a three-step drop,” Johnson said. “If it calls for five, take five. Get your shoulders square. Get yourself in position. Because he’s got the ability to throw the ball if he gives himself a chance. He’s got to get his fundamentals down to get set.”’
