Each day we strive to find article links involving Georgia Southern athletics and former Georgia Southern athletes. Should you find we missed an article link, please reply to help keep the Eagle Faithful informed:

1. Young has Hanner full of campers

[“I think anytime you come into a new program you have to change the culture that was there before because it wasn’t successful. We’ve tired to come in and just sell the guys into recommitting to a championship program,” said Young. “Not just in-between the lines, but off the court also.”]


2. OTAs Report: June 17

[Both Garrett Wolfe and Adrian Peterson saw a lot of action, with Wolfe getting most of the first-team reps and Peterson taking care of the second-team attack. When asked about his Forte-Jones combo, Smith also made sure to say a few nice things about Wolfe, but Peterson's name did not cross his lips. Since he's obviously not a part of the plan on offense, the only way to justify a roster spot for Peterson is if he again proves to be indispensible from a special-teams perspective.]


3. Defense slips up in Braves’ loss

[Chris Shehan added a pair of hits and scored two runs. “Shehan and Fuller are really starting to swing the bats well, and so is (Jahdiel) Santamaria and several other guys,” said Ingle. “It’s unfortunate that they’re coming around at the same time that we are missing our No. 3 and 4 hitters.”]


4. Mainers, behind Guarassi, pitch past New Bedford

[Both pitchers, Sanford's Colin Snow and North Shore's Jeff Tardiff pitched extremely well, the difference was that the defense behind Snow was better than that behind Tardiff.]


5. Defenders prevail over Keene Swamp Bats

[The game was tied 2-2 when the Defenders scored four runs without a hit in the top of the seventh inning. Keene reliever Dexter Bobo faced three batters, walking two and hitting a batter. After Bobo walked Anthony Bona, the pitcher was replaced by Kyle McMyne.]


6. Around The Horn Notebook

[Everett Teaford will take Kniginyzky's spot in the rotation and will start Saturday's game in Springfield. Teaford was promoted from Class A Advanced Wilmington last week and notched the win against Tulsa on Monday. Teaford gave up eight hits in seven innings of work in his Naturals' debut.]


7. Wipke's Walkoff Wins Wild One for Travs

[The Arkansas Travelers led by the Springfield Cardinals by three, then trailed by six, and then finally won 10-9 with a four-run, ninth-inning rally capped by catcher Flint Wipke's game-winning, three-run blast. The Travs and Cards combined for 19 runs and 29 hits off 10 total pitchers, a 3-hour, 23-minute marathon Wednesday night at Dickey-Stephens Ballpark.]


8. Bowling Green Hot Rods Overtake the Lexington Legends in the Ninth for 5-2 Win

[Jeremy Beckham's single moved Sheridan to third, from where he scored on a wild pitch by Lexington reliever Arcenio Leon to put Bowling Green in front 3-2. Justin Reynolds then walked, and after Beckham was thrown out trying to steal third, Anthony Scelfo also walked.]


9. Unsightly start

[Argos' Da'Shawn Thomas is tackled by Alouettes Tyrone Pruitt (left) and John Mohring during the 2nd half last night at the Rogers Centre.]


10. New Warrior coach on the job

[“We have so many things to do and get done,” said Pate, who has won five national championships on the collegiate level at Georgia Southern University. “This a very unique challenge for me, getting moved up here, building a program and getting ready for the upcoming season. I’ve already started looking at film of the players and I really like what I’m seeing as far as talent. We lost some offensive linemen from last year and we’ll need to develop some before the start of the season in August. We’ll be having a summer camp at the school and not go anywhere like in the past. These are tough economic times and we’ve got some bills that need paying, so we’ll keep an eye on the money that is spent.”]
