At-home workouts are fun.

NCAA Football: Georgia at Georgia Tech Dale Zanine-USA TODAY Sports

If you’ve seen a man on Twitter holding either a full backpack or small children, it’s probably just Georgia Tech Strength and Conditioning Coach Lewis Caralla and one of his daily workout videos. While these workouts are meant for the players, they are put on Twitter so everyone can take part in them. As the article above describes, Caralla is doing this to give Georgia Tech a step ahead of the competition come football season. Players are holding each other accountable to their workouts and staying in shape, just like if everyone was on campus.

Kowacie Reeves is a 6’-6” combo guard that plays for Westside High School in Macon, GA. Reeves is rated as the no. 5 player in the state of Georgia for the class of 2021, and the no. 68 player overall, according to the 247Sports composite rankings. Georgia Tech was recently put in his top-six, along with Tennessee, Stanford, Florida, Clemson, and georgia. Reeves would bolster guard depth, especially after the departures of Jose Alvarado and Jordan Usher at the end of this coming season.

According to FTRS’ own non-rev writer and swim expert Jake Grant, “Caio Pumputis is the greatest swimmer in Georgia Tech history.” The article above certainly backs that sentiment, as it discusses Pumputis’ work ethic and dedication to bettering himself everyday as a swimmer. Pumputis’ skill and practice will hopefully pay off in a NCAA Championship and Olympics berth in 2021. Even just one of these would cement him as a Tech legend.

Last week, Andy Ogletree would have played the first two rounds of the Masters with Tiger Woods. In the “Tech Talks” video above, Georgia Tech Golf Coach Bruce Heppler discusses that and many other subjects. One of those subjects is the new format of the ACC Golf Championships, which will be similar to the NCAA Championships. Stroke play for the first two rounds, with the final four teams having two match play days to determine the champion. I’ll be very excited to see how this plays out next year, because even though Tech will lose some key pieces, they still have a good shot at winning an ACC and a national title.

This is a fun highlight from Georgia Tech win over 20 years ago. I always enjoy seeing linemen score.

Question of the Day: How have you been staying fit during this quarantine?
