Georgia Southern football team hits the practice field

Text Size: Small Large Medium

The Georgia Southern football team took the practice fields at Beautiful Eagle Creek Thursday to kick off their first fall camp after officially joining the Sun Belt Conference.

While new head coach Willie Fritz was around to conduct spring camp, this is the first time the entire squad, with freshmen and other newcomers, has been able to work on the field together.

New NCAA rules allow the coaching staff to work with the team two hours per week over the summer, so they hit the field running, quickly moving from drill to drill, even through a short rain shower in the middle of practice.

The Eagles will open their first season at the Football Bowl Subdivision level in Raleigh, North Carolina, against North Carolina State on Aug. 30.
