Recruiting is one area where head coach Geoff Collins and his coaching staff definitely seem to thrive. So, in a way, the return of in-person recruiting is a big deal for the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets football team. There’s a lot that can be conveyed face-to-face that cannot be done over a phone call. As the article points out, the recruits themselves seem to appreciate the opportunity to meet with coaches in person as well. Ideally, this will all mean an uptick for Tech’s recruiting efforts. It definitely means that the coaching staff will be busy, but in the long run it should pay off as Collins and his staff can secure more top-rated recruits.
Georgia Tech’s Camryn Hidalgo of the swimming and diving team was named as one of three finalists for the 2021 Honda Inspiration Award. The announcement was made by the Collegiate Women Sports Awards (CWSA). As the article mentions, Hidalgo is one of the school’s most prolific divers in the history of the program. The winner of the award will be named on Tuesday, June 22. Congratulations to her for being recognized as one of the finalists.
In more awards and recognitions news, Georgia Tech first baseman Tricia Awald of the softball team was named as a Third Team All-American by Justin’s World of Softball.
