Georgia Tech’s Ajani Kerr saw playing time during his four years on the Flats, but was never a consistent factor for the Jackets. After a redshirt year in 2016, Kerr totaled 10 tackles in 2017 (with an incredible pass breakup to seal an upset victory over Virginia Tech), 38 tackles in 2018, and 17 tackles in 2019. Kerr also recovered a crucial fumble in Tech’s 2018 win over Miami to seal bowl eligibility. Thank you, Ajani! We at FTRS wish you nothing but the best!
This is an incredible article by Andy Demetra (the Voice of the Yellow Jackets), as he describes some of his best finds from pre-game research in the past year. Demetra spends a lot of time researching to make sure his broadcasts of Tech games are as thorough and informative as possible. I really enjoyed the video of Geoff Collins with Western Carolina playing against Tech in 1992.
Nat Page is an incredible asset to the Georgia Tech Track program. Page is a former Olympian, has coached track for over 30 years, and was named an assistant coach for the 2020 U.S. Olympic Track team. Unfortunately, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Olympics were postponed for a year to 2021. However, Page didn’t seem too concerned by the postponement, and actually said that it would help some athletes with their preparation for the games. Even though postponing the Olympics was not the most popular decision, it is the smartest for the health of the entire world. Hopefully, there will be a few current and former Jackets competing next year, especially with extra time to practice and prepare.
Congratulations to first-year Head Coach Nell Fortner! This is an incredible award and shows that the future of the Tech Women’s Basketball team is in good hands. Keep it up!
Cleaning my office found this pic of 1972 Georgia Tech Coaching Staff. A lot of future head coaches in it! pic.twitter.com/0LtBN2W5aV— Randy Rhino (@CoachRandyRhino) March 25, 2020
This is a great find from former Georgia Tech football star and current Yellow Jacket chiropractor Randy Rhino. Look at those shorts!
