Stanley charges onto the radar

Deion Stanley has started 23 games for Georgia Southern the last two seasons, but he remains somewhat of an unknown to many Eagle followers. That, however, is about to change beginning at 6 p.m., on Saturday, when the Eagles open their season at Paulson Stadium against Savannah State. Stanley, a 5-foot-9, 195-pound junior from Twiggs County, will start at strong safety against the Tigers, and he figures to get tested right out of the box against Savannah State’s Air Raid offense of first year coach Earnest Wilson III. While Stanley may be an unknown to the casual fan he is no stranger to his coaches and teammates.
