WR Jalen Camp initially came to Georgia Tech as a triple option wide receiver. A physical player that might only get the ball two or three times a game, but would make every opportunity count. Camp missed the early part of Tech’s transition away from the option, only appearing in two games in 2019 due to injury. This season, Camp took advantage of a full slate of games, catching 29 passes for 439 yards and 4 touchdowns. Even though the NFLPA Collegiate Bowl will not be played this year, I’m assuming there will be some combine/scouting aspect for players selected, like Camp. Congratulations, and good luck, Jalen!
It must be good to be Pressley Harvin III right now. Harvin has been named first-team All-America by four of the five outlets recognized as “all-America selectors.” The most recent nod for Harvin is by the American Football Coaches Association. According to the article above, if Harvin is selected by Walter Camp to their first-team All-America, he will be the third unanimous first-team All-American in Georgia Tech history. Also, you can still vote for Harvin in the Ray Guy Award’s fan vote at the link here. Congratulations, Pressley!
The Tech Women’s Basketball team started out slowly against N.C. State last night, going into halftime with a 29-point deficit. The Jackets clawed back behind Lotta-Maj Lahtinen’s 30-point outing, closing the deficit to nine by the final horn. This game was always going to be tough for Tech, considering N.C. State is one of the best teams in the nation. If Tech can play well against non-top five teams, Nell Fortner and co. should be in for a good season.
After one of the best freshman seasons in Georgia Tech football history, WR Ahmarean Brown’s sophomore season was a struggle. Brown dealt with injuries and a low amount of playing time when healthy, only catching 11 passes for 183 reception yards and a touchdown. This was down from 21 receptions for 396 yards and 7 touchdowns in 2019. Brown entered the transfer portal after the season, and recently announced his commitment to South Carolina. A change of scenery should do Brown well. Good luck, Ahmarean!
30 years ago, New Years Day 1991, I was in Orlando with Georgia Tech football at the Citrus Bowl. The Yellow Jackets defeated Nebraska of Tom Osborne 45-21 for a share of the national championship. @CoachCollins @GeorgiaTech @GeorgiaTechFB pic.twitter.com/vN3WJSTXej— Jeff Hullinger (@11hullinger) December 31, 2020
We can’t forget Tech’s last football national title, this day 30 years ago. As we watch four teams play for a spot in the national title game today, we can’t lose sight of the goal that Geoff Collins is working towards. Happy New Year, Jackets!
