The article doesn’t get into the details of why he’s not able to play, but regardless, safety Jeremiah Smith was “medically disqualified”. This effectively brought his career as a Yellow Jacket to an end. The article does point out that Smith can remain on medical scholarship, which in a way is confusing to me. Does this mean he can or will play again? Whatever the situation is, hopefully everything works out well for Smith.

Interestingly, the move to place Jeremiah Smith on medical scholarship (which doesn’t count against Tech’s 85-player scholarship limit) meant that Cade Kootsouradis was able to join the team for practice. With Kootsouradis on the team now, all of the 2020 class of eligible players are now officially on the team.

This article put together a fun little preview of Georgia Tech’s upcoming football season. The article mentions several key players Tech fans will likely want to keep an eye on. This includes Ahmarean Brown, Devin Cochran, Jordan Mason, and Jamious Griffin. The article mentions the rushers which will be one position group of interest.

This was an interesting article on Tyler Strafaci with a lot to unpack. Strafaci is obviously (and rightfully so) riding high after his impressive win at the U.S. Amatuer last week. I think his decision to return for another senior season at Tech is admirable and speaks to his competitiveness. It would be really great if the Tech golf team can get a crack at a national championship — as the article points out, it would be Tech’s first. I have to agree with the anecdote regarding the right connections allowing one to play at the Augusta National. With his recent victory, Strafaci won’t have to worry about needing connections. He’s earned that on his own.
