Georgia Tech Sports Hall of Fame Class of 2024 Announced – Athletics — Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets

THE FLATS – Head football coach Paul Johnson, inducted last year into the College Football Hall of Fame, and All-America women’s basketball player Tyaunna Marshall headline a group of eight former Yellow Jackets who have been elected to the Georgia Tech Sports Hall of Fame as part of its Class of 2024.

The 2024 class also includes ACC champion golfer Paul Haley II, All-America diver Hannah Krimm, All-America long and triple jumper James Lemons, All-America baseball slugger Daniel Palka, All-America football guard Omoregie Uzzi and All-ACC tight end Ken Whisenhunt.

These eight individuals certainly fit the bill, not only due to their achievements as Yellow Jackets, but also what they have accomplished beyond athletics and their time on The Flats. Congratulations to these well-deserving honorees!”

Georgia Tech will officially induct the Classes of 2024 and 2025 during the fall of 2025 on a Friday night prior to a home football game, date to be announced next year.
