Notebook: New Eagles getting into swing of things
083113 GSU HUNT 01
Georgia Southern slotback Torrence Hunt drags Savannah State linebacker Fredrick Fluker for extra yardage during a first quarter run Saturday at Paulson Stadium.
Georgia Southern’s marquee players had a field day in Saturday’s season-opening 77-9 win against Savannah State at Paulson Stadium, but plenty of new faces had an impact, too. On the offensive side of the ball, senior transfer Torrance Hunt, slotback who graduated from East Carolina last year and is playing out his final year of eligibility in graduate school at GSU, blazed through the gaps and torched SSU for 73 yards on seven carries and one of the Eagles’ 10 rushing touchdowns. “I always pride myself on my speed,” Hunt said.
