What an exciting start to 2018 for the Panthers! We are all fired up for Coach Hunter and the basketball team! I hope everyone makes it out to the Sports Arena on THERS-day night for the ‘1 vs. 2’ matchup with Louisiana-Lafayette. These are always tough and emotional games and THERS-day night should be no different. A huge crowd is exactly what our guys need as we enter the back half of the Sun Belt Conference schedule chasing another championship.
Also, speaking of basketball, don’t forget that we’re offering a bus trip next Friday night for our game in Statesboro. Taking a loud contingent of Panther fans is another awesome opportunity for fans to support our team.
On Wednesday, come celebrate the newest football Panthers with Coach Elliott and the football staff at Georgia State Stadium. An incredibly successful recruiting class off the heels of our bowl win continues the exciting growth of our football program. Tickets renewals are in the mail and our schedule should be announced in the next few weeks, so lots of action around football during our “off-season.”
Spring sports have begun practice and several have already begun competitions. We look for an exciting spring with our teams and hope you can make it out to some games.
Finally, many thanks to all for supporting GSU athletes through the Panther Athletic Club. We’re going to push out several exciting ventures in the next couple of weeks as well as an aggressive fundraising goal of 2018. We can only be as successful as your generosity will allow, so please consider Georgia State Athletics in your financial planning for this year.
See you Wednesday and Thursday. What a great week we will have!
