Presented by Cookout, Andy Demetra chats #AllVoteNoPlay with Eric Reveno and Malachi Rice
Georgia Tech associate head basketball coach Eric Reveno and rising senior Malachi Rice chat with Andy Demetra, the Voice of the Jackets, about the #AllVoteNoPlay initiative that grew out of Rice’s challenge to his teammates to exercise their voting rights during a team video call the Monday night following the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis.
Rice made the call to his teammates, and Reveno began pushing the call on social media to have the NCAA declare Election Day (Nov. 3) a day off from mandatory athletic activities. All nine Georgia Tech sports teams who are in season at that time have made Nov. 3 a mandatory day off, and many other institutional athletic departments and conferences have jumped on board.
The Alexander-Tharpe Fund is the fundraising arm of Georgia Tech athletics, providing scholarship, operations and facilities support for Georgia Tech’s 400-plus student-athletes. Be a part of developing Georgia Tech’s Everyday Champions and helping the Yellow Jackets compete for championships at the highest levels of college athletics by supporting the A-T Fund’s Annual Athletic Scholarship Fund, which directly provides scholarships for Georgia Tech student-athletes, and Athletics Initiative 2020, Georgia Tech athletics’ ongoing $125 million initiative to allow Tech to recruit the nation’s most elite student-athletes, build a better student-athlete once they arrive on The Flats and, ultimately, win!
