There must be something about Jacksonville that reminds people of Atlanta. Joining 2020 draftee Tyler Davis and 2020 UDFA Nathan Cottrell will be DE Adam Gotsis, who signed with the Jags last weekend. The Australian will head to Jacksonville after four seasons with the Denver Broncos, bringing 109 tackles and 9 tackles for loss to show for his career. Gotsis will continue to rehab a knee injury that got him placed on the IR last December. Congratulations, Adam!

Not to be outdone by recent Georgia Tech amateur success, two former Tech golfers won PGA TOUR-sanctioned events last weekend. Richy Werenski captured the Barracuda Championship (an alternate to the WGC-FedEx St. Jude Invitational) by one stroke over Troy Merritt. This is Werenski’s first PGA TOUR win, and his first win anywhere since the 2016 BMW Charity Pro-Am on the Korn Ferry Tour. The other Jacket to claim a title was Seth Reeves, who came back from an eight-stroke deficit to win the Korn Ferry Tour’s Pinnacle Bank Championship. Reeves had missed six cuts in a row before winning this tournament, all but securing him a PGA TOUR card for the 2020-21 season. Congratulations, Jackets!

Danny Hall is an incredible baseball coach. Hall is the all-time leader in wins for Georgia Tech, and in his twenty-seven seasons with the Jackets has made twenty-one NCAA Tournaments. Recently, Hall was named the Atlanta Sports Award’s “Outstanding Coach,” over other Atlanta favorites Brian Snitker and Frank De Boer (lol). Congratulations, Coach Hall!

Georgia Tech’s McAuley Aquatic Center is one of the best in the United States, having hosted the aquatic competitions of the 1996 Olympic Games, the 2006 NCAA Men’s Swimming and Diving Championships, and the 2016 NCAA Men’s and Women’s Swimming and Diving Championships. The venerable facility will add one more national event to its resume next year when the College Club Swimming National Championships come to town. This competition is the largest independent swim meet in the United States, with over 2,000 athletes from over 120 teams expected. The Georgia Tech Swim Club will be going for a three-peat in 2021, after missing an opportunity for their third straight national championship this past spring due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Question of the Day: Are the Jaguars your new favorite NFL team?
