Some 600 marching band members from high schools around Georgia, including all three from Bulloch County, joined Georgia Southern University's Southern Pride Marching Band last week for a halftime show that packed the field at Paulson Stadium.Band Game Day is one of Georgia Southern’s most popular musical traditions, and GSU President Brooks Keel loves the annual event. "Our band is an extremely important part of the Georgia Southern game day experience,” he said. “(Head football) coach Jeff Monken has spoken many times to me about the role the Southern Pride plays in our victories on the field. I am very proud of our band and how they represent the Eagle Nation."Outside of Statesboro Southeast Bulloch and Portal high schools, visiting band students came from far and wide, including Bleckley County, Bryan County, Claxton, McIntosh Academy, North Murray, Screven County and Washington County.
