Daily Devotions for Die-Hard Fans: Georgia Tech combines the great passion of the Yellow Jacket fan with the grand passion of the fan of Christ into one set of devotions. The result is a book that is fun while providing a time of reflection about God and your faith. A tractor and a horse helped make Durant Brooks the greatest punter in Tech history. John Salley received a scholarship because he was tall and Tech was desperate, not because he was a great player. Paul Johnson learned about hard work when he was only 12 years old. Gary Lanier quarterbacked Tech to an upset of Notre Dame without throwing a single pass. The greatest women's tennis player in Tech history had to fight to make the team. These stories and more are recounted here. Also appearing are Bobby Dodd, Roger Kaiser, Shawn Jones, Eddie Lee Ivery, Mark Price, and many others. Their stories along with legendary games, improbable victories, and historical events are told with a twist: They are all tied to God's story
