On its final day of summer workouts, the Georgia Tech enjoyed a long-awaited prize Tuesday morning. Players were given access to the renovated locker room, a $4.5 million project that began at the end of the 2017 season.
On videos and photos posted to social media, players clearly were exuberant about the new space. The locker room was built in 2003 as part of an expansion and renovation of Bobby Dodd Stadium.
The new locker room includes video screens and charging stations at each locker, hot and cold tubs, a steam room and branding throughout the space. It had been a priority for coach Paul Johnson for several years as the team has tried to keep up in the race to update facilities to appeal to recruits.
Players’ reactions as they raced around the room Tuesday morning would suggest why it was so important to him.
