Georgia State holds football banquet

Georgia State held its football banquet Thursday and Donald Russell, Albert Wilson and Terrance Woodard were named the team’s most valuable players.

Russell, a senior, rushed for 747 yards before suffering a season-ending knee injury against Villanova.

Wilson, a junior, led the team in receiving with 947 yards, punt returns with 94 yards, and kick returns with 751 yards.

Woodard, a junior, was third on the team with 59 tackles despite playing most of the season with an injured ankle.

Russell, safety Kail Singleton and long-snapper Scott McQueen were named permanent team captains. Linebackers Akeen Felder and Mark Hogan were given scholar-athlete awards.

Jan-Mai Davidson and Nermin Delic were named the top scout players.

Running back Rosevelt Watson received the Magnanimitas Award. Magnanimitas is a Latin word meaning “greatness of spirit.”

Long Year but it has to start somewhere……Taking BIG Steps isn’t easy but hope the new coach can keep building on the foundation Curry started.

I like Bill Curry, but...

who will the new coach be? That’s the only reward from GSU football I want to think about. Of course these guys should feel proud of their individual accomplishments, but this is about wins. That’s it. One win does not a good season make. Keep working guys! We’ve got a long way to go.

When I say “reward” above I mean award.
