Georgia Tech defensive end Kelton Dawson has entered his name into the transfer portal. Dawson is a redshirt junior who started seven games last season for the Yellow Jackets. As mentioned in the article, Dawson recorded 26 tackles, one forced fumble and a sack. He was a productive member of the team and while it will be a loss for the team, there are several candidates who can fill the void left by Dawson. Regardless, we wish him the best wherever he ends up transferring to.
Sometimes pictures can say a lot more than words. This article features a photo tribute to Yellow Jacket tennis player Andres Martin. Martin was ranked No. 60 in the country by the Oracle OTA Singles Rankings.
Tech’s women’s tennis team received positive news. Its 2020 recruiting class was ranked No. 2 by Tennis Recruiting Network and Mizuno. Here are the official recruits of that class:
- Ava Hrastar
- Mahak Jain
- Carol Lee
- Ruth Marsh
As the article mentions, Tech was one of nine ACC teams ranked in the Top 25. #GoJackets
As many have witnessed on television and some perhaps in person, the last few days have been quite emotional as the nation works through a difficult time. As nationwide protests continue, Georgia Tech football head coach Geoff Collins weighed in with his thoughts, as the article points out. Here’s Collins tweet voicing his support:
