Well-known American football athletes include former students Calvin Johnson, Daryl Smith, and Keith Brooking, former Tech head football coaches Pepper Rodgers and Bill Fulcher, and all-time greats such as Joe Hamilton, Pat Swilling, Billy Shaw, and Joe Guyon. Tech's recent entrants into the NBA include Javaris Crittenton, Thaddeus Young, Jarrett Jack, Luke Schenscher, Stephon Marbury, and Chris Bosh. Award-winning baseball stars include Kevin Brown, Mark Teixeira, Nomar Garciaparra, Jason Varitek, and Jay Payton. In golf, the legendary Bobby Jones founded The Masters, David Duval was ranked #1 in the world in 2001, Stewart Cink was ranked in the top ten, and Matt Kuchar won the U.S. Amateur.
