    saw a Georgia state trooper escort for 4 full size travel buses with GT logos with the football team in them drive by me off of Johnson Ferry in east Cobb while I was walking my dog. They were traveling in direction of ?Pope HS? Anyone know the deal? Had my GT shirt on and gave them an air first pump as they flew by

    High school offense needs to practice at a high school.

    Seems legit.

    Damn! I live two or so miles from Pope, drive past it to and from work. Wish I knew. Had an inkling that’s where they were going but had kids swim lessons shortly after the buses went by so didn’t have time to go scope it out which my wife suggested I do.

    I'm sure they wanted to scrimmage and keep it very private. Probably mum was the word on this one

    Also a great way to build local rapport and re familiarize area schools with our brand. . I'd guess we'll see this at other schools too.

    I wish we had some more information from the scrimmage. There is a short write up on the athletics site, other than that, there was no coverage apparently.

    There was no coverage because it was a closed scrimmage. CGC only let the athletics site report the info he gave them.
