Technical Tidbits 2/7: Harrison Butker Still Celebrating

New, 1 comment

The former Jacket is relishing his Super Bowl victory.

Florida State v Georgia Tech

Harrison Butker is one of the best kickers that Georgia Tech has ever seen. He made many incredible kicks during his time on the Flats, and although the Super Bowl didn’t come down to a made (or missed) field goal, Butker helped the Kansas City Chiefs in their victory. This season was incredible for the 24-year old, as he made 89.5% of his regular season field goals and was an excellent kick-off man for the Chiefs. An interesting tidbit to note is that Butker is currently second all-time in field goal accuracy percentage, just a couple percentage points shy of Justin Tucker. Congratulations, and keep it up, Harrison!

Although Georgia Tech Head Football Coach Geoff Collins didn’t hold a formal National Signing Day press conference, he did find time to call into a Rivals show and discuss Tech’s 2020 recruiting class. This was an incredible recruiting performance by Geoff Collins & co., one that I honestly was extremely surprised at considering the play on the field. Luckily though, everyone will start at 0-0 when the new season dawns in September. Is it fall yet?

First pitch is coming up soon for the Georgia Tech Baseball team, and with that comes the ACC Coaches Poll. The Jackets were picked to finish third in the ACC Coastal division, and even received a first place vote. Louisville was picked as the favorite to win the conference and the ACC Atlantic division, while Miami was projected to take the Coastal. T-minus one week until the season begins.

Congratulations to the Georgia Tech Women’s Basketball team, who defeated the Pitt Panthers last night behind Jasmine Carson’s 17 points. The Jackets will return to action Sunday at 2 p.m. vs. Wake Forest at McCamish Pavilion in Atlanta. The game will air on ACCNX. Go, Jackets!

Another edition of Georgia Tech Basketball’s “5 Minutes With...” series has arrived, this time with junior F Moses Wright. I learned that Wright eventually wants to own and operate a seafood restaurant, and would want to play himself in a movie about his life. Give it a read!

The Georgia Tech Women’s Tennis team will face a very good no. 12 tOSU team today at the ITA National Team Indoor Championships in Chicago. This should be a good test for the Jackets, who fell to highly ranked Texas and u(sic)GA teams last week. Even if the team falls, they should get good experience at a very high level of competition. Good luck, Jackets!

Question of the Day: What are your thoughts about Tech’s 2020 recruiting class?
