1. Ex-player to lead GSU's rebuilding effort

["I wanted to be here so bad that there wasn't going to be anything that would prevent me from being here," Young said. "I feel confident things are going to work out best for Georgia Southern and Georgia Southern basketball."]


2. Snow sparkles in Mainers win over New Bedford

[Georgia Southern righthander Colin Snow pitched seven superb innings here Saturday night, helping the Mainers celebrate the Fourth of July with a 4-2 win over the New Bedford Bay Sox at Goodall Park.]


3. Rubber match for Peterson brothers set for Oct. 18

[“He still owes the family a dinner,” Peterson joked. “We made a little wager on the game and we smacked him (23-10). It’s supposed to be the whole family going out to dinner on Mike P. He still hasn’t paid for it. I mean, he’s got that Indianapolis money, Jacksonville money, Atlanta money. He’s going on 11 years in the league and I’m just going on eight. Still, no dinner.”]


4. Game On: Eskimos vs. Alouettes

[S.J. Green in for Richardson and Cory Huclack in for Deslaurier in receiver starting switches with John Mohring and Dylan Steenberger inserted in back-up spots on defence and offence respectively.]


5. Rome Braves fall to Drive

[After Greenville scored two in the bottom of the eighth to make it 6-3, Rome came up in the ninth and made things interesting by drawing within one on an RBI-single from Chris Shehan and an RBI-double from Schlehuber, but could not come any closer after Jahdiel Santamaria lined into a double play to end the game.]


6. Kernels’ streak snapped

[With two outs in the seventh inning, catcher Griffin Benedict (son of former big league catcher Bruce) threw to second on a double-steal attempt to nab Alexi Amarista, who stopped as he got close to the bag and tried to retreat.]
