Georgia Tech begins offseason workout program

Georgia Tech began its offseason workout program on Tuesday, its first under the leadership of new strength and conditioning coach Lewis Caralla.

As part of the program, the entire team was split into 10 teams that will compete against one another, with points awarded in weekly competitions testing strength, speed and agility, by results of the “Hunger Board,” which measures if players are satisfied, hungry or starving to improve (as judged by the strength and conditioning staff) and discipline (which includes academics, weight goals, locker-room appearance, community service and respect).

Tech had similar competitions in previous seasons.

Captains were selected by a team-wide vote – guard Parker Braun, linebacker David Curry, defensive lineman Brentavious Glanton, running back Nathan Cottrell, center Jahaziel Lee, defensive tackle Brandon Adams, and quarterback Tobias Oliver. Four players were named co-captains over two teams – safeties Tariq Carpenter and Juanyeh Thomas and wide receiver Jalen Camp and quarterback Lucas Johnson.
