With a 2010 start date set to field its inaugural football squad, Georgia State University held open tryouts Monday afternoon at Clarkston’s Hallford Stadium, just outside of Atlanta. GSU suits up to begin Division I Football Championship Subdivision (FCS) play, formerly known as Division I-AA, for the first time in school history as part of the Colonial Athletic Association.
About 50 Panthers football hopefuls took part in the workouts, led by GSU head football coach Bill Curry – legendary for his stints at Georgia Tech, Alabama and Kentucky – and assembled staff.
Georgia State signed 26 prospects in February, including highly-touted Henry County QB Drew Little, in its initial recruiting class for the 2010 team.
