The Georgia State football team is hard at work, preparing for the encore season of Panther football.

Most team members are on campus for summer classes, and they are able to participate in voluntary workouts with new Assistant AD for Speed, Strength and Conditioning Ben Pollard.

View the photo gallery of the speed and strength sessions.

The 2011 season kicks off on Friday, Sept. 2 as the Panthers host Clark Atlanta at the Georgia Dome. Season tickets are on sale now by calling 866-GA-STATE.
