Unrest has swept the nation in recent days as citizens protest the death of George Floyd at the hands of a Minneapolis police officer. These protests are part of a larger “Black Lives Matter” movement that is fighting for justice for African-Americans across the country. Tech Head Coach Geoff Collins was one of the first college football coaches to speak out in favor of the protests, and the article above details how Collins is addressing the recent news with the team. Collins is making it a point to listen to all players and attempting to do the best he can to address the current situation and enact change.
While it’s a difficult time for everyone in the world right now, it’s especially tough for incoming college freshman. Many of them won’t have an in-person freshman orientation, and at this point it’s entirely possible that students will begin the fall semester doing online learning. Luckily, the GTAA is helping incoming Tech athletes with virtual programs to prepare them for their time on the Flats.
The current pandemic is definitely not stopping construction around Tech’s campus. That includes the renovations of the Women’s Basketball locker rooms, which began in mid-May. The updated locker rooms will include a hydrotherapy area and a nutrition space, very nice!
I’m really looking forward to the resumption of the PGA Tour next week at the Charles Schwab Challenge. Some former Jackets are looking forward to it as well, especially U.S. Amateur Champion Andy Ogletree, who will be making his PGA Tour debut. Good luck to Andy and the rest of the #ProJackets!

While it isn’t much, it is a start.
