Meet Georgia Southern student-athletes at the mall

Join Georgia Southern student-athletes Saturday at the Statesboro Mall and get a chance to win Eagles football tickets.

Members of the GSU men's and women's soccer and volleyball teams will be on hand during the Statesboro-Bulloch Parks and Recreation sports registration from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Fans and members of the community can take their photo with Gus in a mascot photo booth, compete in the FlatGUS coloring contest and enjoy inflatables.

Parents can also register their children for a number of fall sports programs, including football, soccer, cheerleading, golf and tennis, as well as the Junior Eagle Club.

The club allows children ages 12 and younger to get involved with Georgia Southern Athletics. Membership costs $20 a year and includes a free T-shirt, invitation to club events, goodie bag and access to inflatables on select game days.

The event is sponsored by the Statesboro-Bulloch County Parks and Recreation Department, Georgia Southern Athletics and the Statesboro Mall.
