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. Zabroske Ties for Second as Eagles Take Fifth at Mizuno Savannah Intercollegiate

[“The highlight of the tournament was definitely Ryan's [Zabroske] runner-up finish. He played the last eight holes at 8-under to shoot a 69 today,” stated Mays. “He displayed a great performance here to complete a great fall campaign overall.”]


2. Men's Soccer Wraps Up Two-Game Homestand Against Wofford

[The Georgia Southern men's soccer team wraps up its two-game conference homestand with a Wednesday match against Wofford.]


3. Women’s soccer earns first win against Wofford, 3-

[“Sara has stepped up and has been really dangerous for us in her last four games,” said head coach Ashley Hart.]


4. Injuries plague bottom half of the conference

[“It’s funny how teams that teams have dominated like they have continue to find a way to win and people say they struggle,” said Georgia Southern coach Chris Hatcher. “I don’t think they’re struggling. I think everybody in the conference has gotten a little bit better. Everybody gets fired up to play Appalachian State because they are the best. You flip on the tape, and to me they’re just like they were last year, just like they were the year before.”]


5. GSU getting Mora in kicking game

["(Getting mad before kicking) takes my mind off the actual kick and I just unleash whatever I'm thinking about," Mora said.]


6. SoCon Powers Appalachian State and Georgia Southern Square Off Saturday

[Appalachian State-Georgia Southern. Enough Said. Nothing seems to matter when the fourth week of October rolls around and Appalachian State takes to the gridiron against the Georgia Southern Eagles.]


7. Behind The Mic with David Jackson - October 20, 2009

[After a few subpar seasons in Statesboro, Georgia Southern enters this late October matchup with their sights set on returning to the playoffs for the first time since 2005. With a 4-3 overall record, the next loss will be the last for Chris Hatcher’s squad as a postseason contender, so the Mountaineers have the chance this weekend to solidify an unprecedented fourth-straight year with no postseason football for this one-time national power.]


8. Behr: Edwards continues to impress

[But Riddle can't remotely come close to matching Edwards' running ability. This isn't a knock on Edwards, since there have been very few quarterbacks who could. Former Georgia Southern quarterback Jayson Foster comes to mind, but Edwards is a better passer.]


9. Recruiting Notebook: Florida's Class Ranks No. 1 Nationally

[The best class in the Southern Conference is Georgia Southern's. The Eagles landed the best haul in school history, as five of their six drafted players showed up on campus. Michigan outfielder Victor Roache might be raw, but he's an athletic specimen, but huge raw power and plus speed. Rashawyne Payne and Arthur Owens add more athleticism, while righties Chris Beck and Ryan Sadler have serious upside and already reach 93 mph.]


10. College Recruiting Chat With Aaron Fitt

[Aaron Fitt: Last one. Georgia Southern gets my vote for best class in the SoCon (read my write-up on the Eagles in the recruiting notebook). I also liked College of Charleston's class, particularly two-way talent Christian Powell and outfielder Daniel Aldrich, who has nice lefthanded power potential. Elon is looking at a rebuilding year after losing a boatload of seniors off last year's team. I think CofC, The Citadel, Western Carolina and Ga. Southern will duke it out for the SoCon title in 2010.]
