Congratulations to Tyler Strafaci on advancing to and winning the 2020 U.S. Amateur Finals. Strafaci finished in style and became the second Yellow Jacket to win the tournament in as many years.


The Yellow Jackets picked up their 19th commitment of the 2021 recruiting class. Three-star safety Sirad Bryant announced on Twitter his intention to sign with Tech. As the article mentions, Bryant is a local product from Cordele Crisp County. The more of the local talent that head coach Geoff Collins and his coaching staff are able to recruit and bring to Tech the better. This latest commitment means that Tech’s 2021 class is ranked 22nd according to #GoJackets

Georgia Tech athletics released its Alcohol Policies and Procedures for Bobby Dodd Stadium. Here’s a couple of the items that caught my attention:

“Guests are limited to the purchase of two alcoholic beverages per legal ID, per transaction.” - This is a good reason to take your passport as well as your drivers licence to the game.

“Alcohol related issues can be reported by Texting “BUZZ” to 78247 or notifying the nearest stadium event staff.” So, under what circumstance would do you text to [Steppenwolf] Faced?

So, after years of no tight ends at Tech, they’re suddenly becoming valuable commodities on the Flats. As the article stated, a jump in production is expected from this position group next season (if there is one). Head coach Geoff Collins did want the tight ends to get beefed up too over the summer break. Adding pounds for a scholarship? I doubt any college student would really need any more motivation to eat more, but that seems like a pretty good motivational factor to me. It gives a whole new meaning to the idea of the freshman fifteen.
