GREENSBORO, N.C. – Georgia Tech softball senior outfielder Crosby Huckabay was one of 15 recipients of the Atlantic Coast Conference’s Go Teach Dr. Pepper Tuition Giveaway, the league and College Football Playoff Foundation announced Tuesday.
Student-athletes interested in teaching or coaching were recommended to the ACC’s awards committee with the winners receiving a $2,500 scholarship to continue their pursuit of a career in those fields. Each institutions’ nominee was invited to video conference with a panel that included former NFL safety Darren Woodson, other Power 5 conference nominees and ACC representatives.
A second-year senior outfielder, Huckabay earned a bachelor’s degree in business administration from Georgia Tech in spring 2020 and is now pursuing a second degree in literature, media and communication.
The Chattanooga, Tenn. native has appeared in 76 games over the last two seasons, making 72 starts in the outfield. In addition to leading the Yellow Jackets with 16 RBI in the shortened 2020 season, she’s also been second on the team in home runs two-straight years with 12 in 2019 and four in 2020.
