1. Football Closes Three-Game Homestand with Presbyterian College

["Harold Nichols does a great job and has really improved that program. Two years ago they were 0-11," said Head Coach Jeff Monken. "Harold knows Georgia Southern. He coached in this offense for years with Tim Stowers at Georgia Southern and Rhode Island. They are not going to be surprised at all with anything that we can thrrow at them."]


2. Golf Ties for Fifth at AutoTrader.com Collegiate Classic

[Georgia Southern fell into a tie for fifth place Tuesday in the third and final round of the AutoTrader.com Collegiate Classic hosted by Georgia State at the Berkeley Hills Country Club.]


3. Greer a winner at every level

[Monken said GSU recruited Greer after watching highlights of him from his performances at Blinn College. “Was really impressed with him on tape,” Monken said. “He had some other places that he had lined up to go and, fortunately, he decided he would come here. And I’m glad we got him. We needed a guy who could kick the thing into the end zone and kick it high and give us a chance to cover the kick. And he does that.”]


4. USC’s Ellington makes a big mark

[QB Connor Shaw said he and his brother Jaybo, who plays quarterback at Georgia Southern, don’t have a family rivalry. In fact, it’s the complete opposite. “We’ve been best friends since we were little,” Connor Shaw said. “He’s helped me so much since I’ve been here. Any advice I can call him, any advice he can call me. It works out good.”]


5. Next level: Local athletes now playing college football

[In Georgia Southern’s 50-30 win over Furman, Clarke Central graduate Darrieon Robinson rushed twice for 13 yards, and Madison County graduate Brent Russell finished the game with two tackles.]


6. Price focused for last PGA Tour card bid

[For Price, nothing short of a top-two finish is likely to push him inside the magic 125 number, although inside the top 150 is certainly more attainable. "It's obviously do or die," said Price, who only gained a start in the tournament on Monday.]
