ATLANTA, GA (WALB) - Thomas County Central football legend Joe Burns will now be a Georgia Tech Hall of Famer.
The school announced 2015's Hall of Fame Class Thursday, and Burns is one of nine set for induction this fall.
Burns starred for the Yellow Jackets from 1998-2001, and is 7th all-time in school history with 2,634 rushing yards.
The Thomasville native was a first-team All-ACC selection in 2001, and led the 2000 team that finished second in the conference in total yards.
Burns will be joined in the class with eight other Tech greats, including former longtime play-by-play commentator Wes Durham and two-time Olympian Chaunte Lowe.
The 2015 class will be inducted officially on Friday, October 16. The class will also be honored during Tech's home football game against Pittsburgh on October 17.
