It’s a bye week for the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets football team, so there’s a natural lull in the football-related news. However, it doesn’t mean there hasn’t been activity from other athletic programs. The Georgia Tech men’s swim-dive team has been ranked 19th in the preseason CSCAA Division I poll. This article has more information about their upcoming season. Meanwhile, the 16th ranked Yellow Jackets volleyball team had a big win on the road against Clemson. They swept the Tigers 25-17, 25-23, 25-19.
Finally, some former Tech football players have been in the news. This #ProJackets Football Report features some former Yellow Jackets like Tyler Davis and Pressley Harvin III. With all that said, let’s get into Friday’s Tidbits.
The Georgia Tech football team isn’t the only athletic program at Tech that has benefited from the transfer portal. As this article discusses, the baseball team announced on Wednesday that they’ve added five players over the summer through the transfer portal. Those players are Tim Borden II from Louisville, Brandon Prince from Georgia Highlands, Chandler Simpson from University of Alabama-Birmingham, Cole McNamee from Wake Forest, and Jack Rubenstein from Emory.
This should ultimately benefit the baseball team going into the new season. Their first action will include a couple exhibition matches. The first of those will take place this Saturday at Mac Nease Baseball Park at Russ Chandler Stadium.
For those who are nostalgic about Tech football or like to relive some of the team’s former glory, the ACC Network will have a documentary on the 1990 NCAA Championship team. This article has a lot of good details about the new film appropriately titled “We’re No. 1”. There were some great names associated with that team, including head coach Bobby Ross, and players such as Ken Swilling and Shawn Jones to name a couple.
The documentary airs on Monday, October 18th. With the bye-week, it’s too bad it couldn’t be scheduled for this Saturday. Either way, it will definitely be worth checking out.
