A couple of days ago I received my Georgia Tech Football Spring Prospectus.
I immediately went to the player bios to look for Brian Johnson, the former Lakeside High School standout who signed with the Yellowjackets after finishing his career with the Panthers.
There was one problem with my search - Johnson was nowhere to be found.
I called the Tech football office to inquire about Johnson's status, and was informed that Johnson had quit the team and was no longer enrolled at Georgia Tech.
I followed that query with a call to Georgia Tech's sports information office, where it was confirmed that Johnson had quit, but they offered no additional information.
In any event, it seems that a promising college football career has come to an end.
Kreisman part of ASU run
The Augusta State University basketball team made history this season, as the Lady Jaguars tied a team record with 24 wins and became the first No. 8 seed to win a regional and advance to the NCAA Division II Elite Eight.
Sarah Kreisman was part of ASU's magnificent run.
The Evans High School graduate appeared in 24 games for Augusta State as a reserve post player. Although her action was limited, Kreisman can say she was part of the historic 2004 court campaign at ASU.
Heading into last weekend's high-school baseball contests, the Greenbrier High School squad had four players hitting over .400.
Additionally, Wolfpack senior Michael Newman had not allowed an earned run in 21 innings pitched.
Though Newman has the hot hand on the hill, the Pack has been very balanced at the plate.
Senior outfielder Brooks Robinson topped the team with a lofty .483 average, but Scott Wandless (.433), Brad Ramsbotham (.417), Rich Poythress (.400) and Sam Pitts (.429) also must be seeing the ball pretty well.
