Football Begins Annual Super Star Olympics

Jan. 24, 2018

WASHINGTON - On Monday evening, the Georgetown University football team kicked off its annual Super Star Olympics with the selections of the six teams via a draft, held in the Thompson Athletics Center. Rising seniors served as team captains, selecting rosters of players being ranked based on their numbers in the weight room.

"Monday was a great night for the guys to get together in a non-training function and have some fun and spend time developing the brotherhood," said Associate Head of Sports Performance Dave Terry, who works specifically with the football program. "These Olympics are designed to break up the monotony of offseason training while creating accountability, discipline and a strong work ethic. This semester should bring out some intense and challenging, but fun, competition among the team."

Each week throughout the spring semester, the Hoyas, led by members of the sports performance staff, will compete in a series of events that are blends of tests of strength, intelligence and teamwork.

In Monday's draft, sophomore defensive lineman Khristian Tate (Warner Robins, Ga./Covenant Academy), an All-Patriot League First Team selection in the fall, was the first overall pick by the team captained by running back Carl Thomas (Floirissant, Mo./Lutheran North) and placekicker Oliver Hill (Brooklyn, N.Y./Deerfield Academy).
