Greyhounds News · Georgia Tech Nutritionist Speaks to Pope Athletes


For our January Athletic AO, we were honored to have Assistant Athletic Director for Student-Athlete Development at Georgia Tech, Mrs. Leah Thomas, speak to our athletes about nutrition and wellness.  It was a great TED talk by Mrs. Thomas as she discussed the 5 Guiding Principles of Nutrition: What to eat, When to eat, How to Eat, Hydration, and finally, a quick overview of supplements.  Mrs. Thomas definitely gave us plenty to think about as we aspire to have the best functioning bodies for optimal athletic and academic performance.  Thank You, Mrs. Thomas, for taking time to teach us from your vast experiences as a developer of athletes at Georgia Tech!

We also continued our yearlong discussion about sportsmanship and how we want to behave at sporting events.

Finally, it was fantastic to start the AO program by recognizing our 5-time region champions and 2020 6A State Dual Champion, Pope Wrestling team.

Next Athletic AO is February 27th…Our guest that day will be Cobb County Athletic Director, Mr. Don Baker, who will speak on the good, bad, and ugly of Social Media…He has a deep understanding of how student-athletes can and should use social media to benefit themselves.
