Dec. 12, 2012

THE FLATS –

Yellow Jacket fans, the Georgia Tech Athletic Association wishes you Happy 12/12/12 Day. While 12/12/12 Day is not an official holiday, it does come around only once a century, so please enjoy.

 

WHY I WEAR NO. 12

Stacey Poole, Jr. (Men’s Basketball)

“I used to be 22, but it’s retired. I didn’t get the chance to call John Salley and ask him, so I’m 12.”

 

Kaitlin Kates (Softball):

“In high school I was 7 and my sister was 5, so when both were taken I put them together.”

 

Wimberly Wilson (Volleyball):

“I was born in December, and 12 is the number of a quarterback. A leader.”

Demond Smith (football):

My number was 10 and Synjyn (Days) already had it. 12 was the closest to it.”

 

Frida Fogdemark (women’s basketball):

It’s been my number since I was little. I’ve worn it since I was 8.
