THE FLATS — More than 100 Georgia Tech students originally from countries unfamiliar with American football will have an opportunity to learn the basics of the game and Yellow Jackets football history. Head coach Paul Johnson and his players will host its third annual International Football Clinic on Thursday, April 16.
Georgia Tech’s International Football Clinic is scheduled for 4-6 p.m. and is sponsored by the Tech’s Student Government Association. It will open with a welcome and Football 101 presentation from Coach Johnson, followed by a tour of the equipment room and locker room.
