This was a nice story for Father’s Day by the Gwinnett Daily Post on Danny Hall and his two sons. The family clearly lives for baseball, and it was very interesting to read the story about the role Charlie Culberson played in Colin Hall’s college decision-making process. One might think that Danny Hall might finally retire after his second son finishes at Tech, so let’s hope the team finishes out the next few seasons with some championships!
7th-rder Xzavion Curry signs with @Indians for $125k (pick 220 value = $197,300). Georgia Tech RHP, just 5-foot-10 but up to 94 mph with life on his fastball. @MLBDraft— Jim Callis (@jimcallisMLB) June 16, 2019
Former Georgia Tech baseball player Xzavion Curry is officially a professional. Although he signed for a lot less than the slot value of his pick, some of that is probably due to his height. However, if he eventually makes it to the majors he probably won’t care about how much he signed for or the slot value. Good luck Xzavion!
While teammate Noah Norton struggled at the U.S. Open, the same cannot be said about Andy Ogletree. Ogletree won by two strokes over Notre Dame’s Davis Chatfield and UNC-Wilmington’s Segundo Oliva Pinto at the Monroe Invitational in New York. The rising senior will look to continue improving as he and the rest of the Yellow Jacket golf team look to advance even further at the NCAA Championships next year.
Speaking of the U.S. Open, former Jacket Chesson Hadley finished T9 and former Jacket Matt Kuchar finished T16. The other three current/former Jackets in the field, Ollie Schniederjans, Roberto Castro and Noah Norton (a) all missed the cut.
There wasn’t much suspense to this decision, but it is still nice to see that there was little disagreement of the selection within the University System of Georgia Board of Regents. All fans and students of Georgia Tech are definitely looking forward to the new era and wish the new President all the best!
Question of the Day: What do you want to see from the new President?
