Sadly, we have lost one of our elder Yellow Jackets. Carlton Waskey of Roanoke, Virginia passed away this past weekend. He played for Bobby Dodd and after his college career would go on to become a football official.
Speaking of Bobby Dodd, FTRS’s own Jake Grant provided this engaging piece that shed some historical light on Dodd’s career at Tech. I found it interesting how Dodd thought highly of Tech’s academic standing and incorporated that into his message to his players. (It seems similar to what Geoff Collins is doing currently).
The whole backstory of how Dodd ended up at Tech is quite interesting as well.
