A few notes regarding a few players present and past.
1. B-back Broderick Snoddy has returned to the Georgia Tech indoor track team. Snoddy ran last year and broke the school’s 60-meter dash record three times and qualified for the NCAA indoor track championships. His first meet is Saturday in Birmingham, Ala.
2. Former Tech defensive back Jemea Thomas will play in the East-West Shrine Game Saturday in St. Petersburg, Fla. The game is at 4 p.m. and will be televised on the NFL Network. He’ll play for the East team.
Thomas has received positive reviews from scouting services. Optimum Scouting called Thomas “the clear impressing defensive back” for the East team in Thursday’s practices with two interceptions and a few pass breakups. The report added, though, that he “didn’t shine all that much during the week.”
3. Former defensive end Jeremiah Attaochu will begin practice at the Senior Bowl in Mobile, Ala., on Monday. The NFL Network will cover practices Monday through Thursday and also the game on the 24th. As part of the South team, Attaochu will be coached by the Jacksonville Jaguars staff. The Falcons staff will coach the North team.
