There's a plethora of Where Are They Now? bonus coverage to be had for Georgia Tech fans. Let's roll right into it:
WATN - ANTHONY MORROW
A-Mo had quite the outing this week during his summer league stint with the Miami Heat. How's about 5 3-pointers, dropping 19 points in a victory where top Miami pick Michael Beasley had 9 pts on 1-13 shooting, 7 fouls and 5 turnovers. Kansas's Mario Chalmers had 19 pts and 9 assists for the Heat as well.
WATN - RESNO "ROCK" PERDONI
Renso "Rock" Perdoni has been named to the 75th anniversary all-Sun Bowl team. He's one of 75 guys named.
WATN - JAKE RUDOLPH
The former Georgia Tech standout football player Jake Rudolph passed away last week. Rudolph was on Bobby Dodd's back-to-back undefeated teams back in the early 50's. The AJC recounts his famous plays and some nice back-story. Rest in peace young man.
WATN - CALVIN JOHNSON
Some see this year as a breakout season for Calvin "The Truth" Johnson, being all healthy and all.
WATN - TOM BARTON
Interesting story about the guy largely responsible for building Greenville Tech (a local technical school here in upstate SC). While the guy was a Clemson graduate, I couldn't help but notice the following statement:
Of the festivities surrounding his retirement, Barton said, "I'd like for both my mother and Coach Frank Howard to see today what has happened."
Bobby Dodd of Georgia Tech, who coached Barton's final football game, wanted to help him find a career. He contacted a number of schools, and Barton wound up with a job teaching and coaching at Brown High in west Atlanta.
Someone help me with the connection here?
WATN - JASON PERRY
Former Georgia Tech diamond-baller Jason Perry was swapped around by four different clubs before finally getting his first taste of the bigs back in the he played his college ball. The Atlanta Braves call-up only tripled in his first at-bat and has been contributing ever since.
Who is John Paul Foschi? A Kansas City Chief - that's who. Chan Gailey continues to look after some of his old guys.
