Just over nine months into his coaching tenure at Georgia Tech, one thing is certain about Geoff Collins, the man knows how to recruit. And he has a passion for it. Flying by helicopter to watch two high school football games is nothing out of the ordinary for Collins. Does the Yellow Jacket helicopter have an official name? It says “Mayhem is Here” on the side. Any suggestions? Regardless, as the season goes on, so will the recruiting efforts of Collins and his staff. The 2020 class will be an interesting one, as it will be Collins first. It appears he’s putting in the effort to make it the best one that he can.

Congratulations to Georgia Tech’s women’s tennis player Victoria Flores. She claimed the singles title of flight five in the Debbie Southern Furman Fall Classic. Yellow Jackets players will next be traveling to Hilton Head, S.C. for the ITF 25K. #GoJackets

In more tennis news, Yellow Jackets Kenya Jones and Victoria Flores won the doubles title of flight two in the Debbie Southern Furman Fall Classic. Congratulations to the two of them.

It’s nice to be able to include articles from local papers/sites, especially when they are from where a Yellow Jacket player is from. In this case, it’s a Savannah based site and the story of redshirt-sophomore Zach Quinney and how he was chosen as a captain for the Clemson game a few weeks ago. Quinney was a former standout player at Savannah Christian and is currently an offensive lineman with the Yellow Jackets football team.

There’s a positive message to take away from this article, and that’s a good thing. It focuses on how the football team has been working hard to focus on the future and continue to improve. The Citadel loss was a disappointing one, but it’s well in the past now. From the game film, the players can focus on improving and avoiding making the same mistakes. Perhaps the quote from Tech athletic director Todd Stanbury summarizes it best: “In watching (Temple) play last year and the history of (Collins’) teams, they get better,” said Stansbury. “What he’s done in the past shows our future is bright.”
