    SPREADING THE WEALTH Georgia State’s balanced off ense has shown the ability to spread the ball around. Th rough three games, 12 diff erent players have caught passes. Th e Panthers have used four tailbacks, and eight diff erent players have scored touchdowns.

    WHAT A BEGINNING Th e football era at Georgia State began with a bang as the Panthers defeated Shorter, 41-7, before a crowd of 30,237 fans on Th ursday, Sept. 2 at the Georgia Dome. Quarterback Drew Little led the Panthers’ attack with a 13-of-17 performance and touchdown passes to Emmanuel Ogbuehi and Jordan Giles, while running back Parris Lee scored twice on the ground. Th e program’s fi rst-ever game capped a preparation period that began in April 2008, when it was fi rst announced that the school would fi eld a football team. “I’ve never been more proud of a group of young men than I am of this group,” said head coach Bill Curry. Georgia State piled up 366 yards of total off ense, including 212 yards rushing, in the contest and allowed the Shorter off ense inside the red zone just once in the game.

    JAKE THE PLAYMAKER HONORED BY CFPA Outside linebacker Jake Muasau displayed his abilities as a playmaker against Lambuth (Sept. 11). Playing GSU’s “bandit” position, he collected six tackles with four tackles for loss, including three sacks. He also caused a fumble, recovered a fumble and intercepted a pass, all in the fi rst half. Muasau, a junior from Sierra Vista, Ariz., earned honorable mention recognition for the national Linebacker of the Week award from the College Football Performance Awards (CFPA).

    BO KNOWS PUNTING . . . AND RECEIVING Aft er earning the role as the Panthers’ starting punter, Bo Schlechter added wide receiver to his resume, moving there from quarterback the week of Sept. 6. Schlechter got his fi rst few snaps at wide receiver against Lambuth but did not catch a pass. Th en against Jacksonville State, he caught fi ve passes for 64 yards, including an 11-yard catch on third-and-eight and a 14-yard grab on third-and-six. Th e redshirt freshman from Wellington, Fla., is one of Georgia State’s most versatile athletes. Not only did he star in football at Glades Day High, but he also played volleyball and earned a scholarship off er to Boise State in that sport. Schlechter, who averages 40.1 yards per punt, served as special teams captain for the fi rst two games of the season. He also earned the team’s fi rst Magnanimitas award. Magnanimitas is a Latin word meaning “greatness of spirit,” and the award recognizes an exemplary display of one of the six characteristics of a champion. In Schlechter’s case, the characteristic he exemplifi ed was unselfi shness because of his willingness to move from quarterback to wide receiver.

    NO PLACE LIKE DOME Georgia State’s inaugural season began with three straight home games, and now the Panthers will make their fi rst ever road trip as they travel to Campbell. Aft er that away game, the Panthers return to the Georgia Dome for another three-game

    THE INAUGURAL SEASON

    homestand, giving Georgia State six of its fi rst seven games at home. Th e inaugural season concludes with three of the fi nal four games on the road.

    NO AD-VANCE EXPERIENCE When Georgia State placekicker Iain Vance lined up to kick the extra point following the Panthers’ fi rst touchdown in their inaugural game, it marked his fi rst appearance in a football game since his senior season at Duluth High School - in the fall of 2005. Vance, a fi ft h-year senior, was a former walk-on player at both Georgia Tech (2006) and Alabama (2008) but never appeared in a game. He enrolled at Georgia State in the summer of 2009 and practiced with the Panthers last fall.

    PARRIS LEE MAKES HISTORY One of the off ensive stars for Georgia State in its opening victory over Shorter was redshirt freshman running back Parris Lee, who capped the Panthers’ fi rst drive by scoring the fi rst touchdown in GSU history on a four-yard run. Th e Jacksonville, Fla., native later scored again on a 10-yard jaunt, and he fi nished with 62 yards on just eight carries. Lee spent the 2009-10 at slot receiver but moved to running back this preseason.

    LITTLE EARNS INAUGURAL GAME START Aft er a four-man battle for the starting job throughout the preseason, redshirt freshman Drew Little (Henry County HS, McDonough, Ga.) was the starting quarterback for Georgia State’s inaugural game. Little earned the nod over redshirt freshmen Kelton Hill (Lithia Springs HS, Lithia Springs, Ga.) and Bo Schlechter (Glades Day HS, Wellington, Fla.) as well as sophomore Star Jackson (Lake Worth HS, Lake Worth, Fla.), the transfer from Alabama. Little, who was spelled at times by Hill, completed 13 of 17 passes for 135 yards and two touchdowns with no interceptions. Aft er leading the Panthers to a touchdown on their fi rst off ensive possession, he threw the fi rst touchdown pass in GSU history on a four-yard completion to tight end Emmanuel Ogbuehi. He later added a 16-yard scoring pass to Jordan Giles.

    INAUGURAL STARTING LINEUP Georgia State’s starting lineup for its inaugural game is below.

    PLAYERS WITH PREVIOUS D-I GAME EXPERIENCE Th e Georgia State roster was bolstered this summer by the addition of four transfers from major Division I programs, all of whom are eligible to play for the Panthers this fall. Th e quartet includes a backup quarterback from 2009 national champion Alabama (Star Jackson) as well as one starting off ensive lineman (Joseph Gilbert) and one reserve (Clyde Yandell) from Georgia Tech’s 2009 Atlantic Coast Conference championship team, and a member of Auburn’s Outback Bowl squad (tight end Bailey Woods). While the four recent additions have received the most fanfare, two other key Panthers have previous Division I FBS experience in center Ben Jacoby and wide receiver Sidney Haynes, both of whom enrolled last fall and practiced with the team. Jacoby, a junior from Buford, Ga., spent two seasons at Ball State, including the 2008 season, when he saw action in six games on the Cardinals’ squad that won the MAC West Division title with a 12-2 record and played in the GMAC Bowl. Haynes played two seasons at UCF, helping the Knights win the Conference USA title in 2007. He had four catches for 48 yards in his UCF career. Cornerback Jocquez Fears also has previous Division I experience, playing two seasons at FCS program Northeastern. Th e NU program was disbanded following the 2009 season, and Fears, an Atlanta native, transferred to GSU and is eligible this fall. Walk-on linebacker Brad Chahoy played in two games at Georgia Southern in 2008, giving GSU a total of eight player with previous Division I game experience. Several other players had playing experience at other levels, including starting free safety Brandon Jones, who played two years at NCAA Division II Mars Hill before transferring to GSU.

    TRUE FRESHMEN MAKE IMPACT A couple of true freshmen have made an immediate impact on the Georgia State lineup. Justin Hughes of Port St. Lucie, Fla. (Treasure Coast HS) earned a starting berth at cornerback. He is likely to be joined by another true freshman at corner as Demarius Matthews of Powder Springs, Ga. (McEachern HS) and Jamal Ransby of Newnan, Ga. (Newnan HS) fi ll in for the injured Brent McClendon. Another true freshman to watch is receiver Albert Wilson, also from Port St. Lucie, Fla. (Port St. Lucie HS). Th e versatile speedster caught a pass for seven yards and returned a kickoff 53 yards in the opener. Other true freshmen who have a earned spot as backups in the two-deep include linebacker Cole Moon and defensive back and Isaiah Howard.

    EXPERIENCED COACHES Georgia State is blessed with a pair of coordinators with a wealth of major college experience in assistant head coach/defensive coordinator John Th ompson and off ensive coordinator John Bond. Th ompson has served as defensive coordinator or co-coordinator at SEC schools Mississippi (2007), Florida (2002), Arkansas (2000-01), South Carolina (2005), as well as Memphis (1999), Southern Miss (1992-98), Louisiana Tech (1990-91) and Northwestern State (1988-89), for a total of 23 years as a Division I coordinator. Bond, a 25-year coaching veteran, directed prolifi c off enses at Georgia Tech (2007), Northern Illinois (2004-06), Army (2000-03) and

Th ompson spent two seasons (2004-05) as the head coach at East Carolina, where he coached current NFL standout running back Chris Johnson. Pugh compiled a 19-10 record in three seasons at Alabama A&M (1989-91), winning three SIAC titles.

    JAKE & LOUIE Th e fl owing locks you see when Georgia State’s defense is the on the fi eld belong to linebackers Jake (35) and Louie Muasau (38), pronounced moose-OW. Th e brothers are the sons of Asoiva Muasau and the late Liuavano Muasau, natives of American Samoa. Jake’s given name is Manumalo, while Louie is short for Tuugalue. Although they are both juniors and look as if they could be twins, Louie is actually a year older. Jake plays outside linebacker, while Louie plays inside linebacker. Th e brothers hail from Sierra Vista, Ariz., where they attended Buena High School. Th ey went on to play junior college football at Phoenix College before enrolling at Georgia State in January 2010.

    NFL FACILITIES Georgia State is one of just eight collegiate programs to play its home games in the same facility as an NFL team. Six are FBS programs: Miami, Pittsburgh, San Diego State, Temple, Tulane and USF. Th e only other FCS program to play in an NFL facility is Tennessee State.

    ARTIFICIAL TURF In its inaugural season, Georgia State will play just one of its 11 games on natural grass - the season fi nale at Alabama’s Bryant-Denny Stadium. Th e Panthers’ home fi eld, the Georgia Dome, features artifi cial turf, as do Campbell’s Barker-Lane Stadium, Old Dominion’s Foreman Field and South Alabama’s Ladd-Peebles Stadium.

    FATHERS & SONS Two members of Bill Curry’s fi rst Georgia State team are the sons of his former players at Georgia Tech. Mark Hogan, Jr. was GSU’s fi rst scholarship football player when he enrolled in January 2009. His father, Mark, Sr., played for Curry at Tech from 1982-85. Mark, Jr., spent the spring 2009 semester as a team of one, working out by himself with strength and conditioning coach Ken Coggins. Th e Panthers added another second-generation player in Auburn transfer Bailey Woods, whose father, John, was an off ensive lineman at Tech in 1976 when Curry was the line coach.

    ANOTHER FAMOUS FATHER Sophomore cornerback Brent McClendon is the son of former Chicago Bears running back Willie McClendon. Th e elder McClendon starred at Georgia, where he was the 1978 Southeastern Conference Player of the Year. Brent’s older brother, Bryan, also played at Georgia and is a now the running backs coach for the Bulldogs.

    MATTHEWS HONORS HIGH SCHOOL TEAMMATE For Georgia State freshman cornerback Demarius Matthews, his jersey number holds special signifi cance. Matthews, from Powder Springs, Ga., asked to wear No. 5 in honor of Rajaan Bennett, his teammate at McEachern High who was killed in an apparent murder-suicide last February. Bennett was an outstanding player himself who had earned a scholarship to Vanderbilt.

    NOT THE ONLY DEBUT Th e Georgia State football team isn’t the only debut this season. Th e launch of football has also given birth to the University’s fi rst marching band. Under the direction of Dr. Chester Phillips, the GSU marching band features 140 members, including 89 woodwinds and brass, 20 Percussion, 23 Color guard, four rock band members and four drum majors.

    of Fame & Atlanta Sports Hall of Fame

    An Atlanta native and former head coach at Georgia Tech, Alabama and Kentucky, Bill Curry was introduced on June 12, 2008, eight weeks aft er the football program was offi cially launched on April 17. Curry has spent the last two years developing and directing the football program in every area, and now he leads the Panthers on the fi eld as they play their inaugural season of 2010. Curry brings 17 years of experience as a head coach in the Southeastern Conference and the Atlantic Coast Conference—including Coach of the Year awards in both leagues—as well as an All-Pro playing career in the National Football League, and, most recently, national notoriety as a college football analyst for ESPN. In the NFL, he participated in three Super Bowls and two Pro Bowls and was part of three cham-pionship teams (1965, 1966 and 1970). As a center, Curry snapped

    the ball to legendary quarterbacks Bart Starr and Johnny Unitas, and he played for two of the most highly-regarded coaches in profes-sional sports history in Vince Lom-bardi and Don Shula. His college coach, Georgia Tech’s Bobby Dodd, is an icon in Southern football annals. Curry’s 10-year playing career as a center included stops with the Green Bay Packers (1965-66), Balti-more Colts (1967-72), Houston Oil-ers (1973) and Los Angeles Rams (1974). He served as President of the NFL Players Association. Curry entered the coach-ing ranks as off ensive line coach at Georgia Tech in 1976. He then spent three years as an NFL assis-tant with the Packers (1977-79) before returning to his alma mater as head coach in 1980. Curry took over a Georgia Tech program in transition, moving from independent status to the Atlantic Coast Conference while in need of facilities upgrades. His fi rst two sea-sons were highlighted by a stunning 3-3 tie against No. 1-ranked Notre Dame in 1980, in which the Yellow Jackets’ quarterback was a freshman walk-on named Ken Whisenhunt, who is now the head coach of the Arizona Cardinals, and a 24-21 vic-tory at fourth-ranked Alabama the following year. Curry’s teams also scored a pair of victories over nationally-ranked Georgia teams as well as a win over 13th-ranked Clemson that snapped a 20-game ACC winning streak. Curry’s rebuilding eff orts cul-minated in 1985, when he led Tech to a 9-2-1 season for the school’s highest win total in two decades and its fi rst bowl victory in 13 years, defeating heavily-favored Michigan State in the All-American Bowl. For his eff orts, he was named ACC Coach of the Year. Curry compiled a record of 20-11-3 over his fi nal three seasons at Georgia Tech before moving to Alabama in 1987. He posted a three-year record of 26-10 with the Crimson Tide, capped by the 1989 SEC title and Sugar Bowl berth. In addition to being selected SEC Coach of the Year in 1989, Curry received the national coach-

    ing accolade named for his beloved mentor, the Bobby Dodd Coach of the Year Award. Curry then spent seven seasons at Kentucky (1990-96), highlighted by a berth in the 1993 Peach Bowl. At the time, that marked the Wild-cats’ fourth bowl berth in 40 years. Th rough every stop, Curry has carried an indelible reputation for integrity and class, and he has been guided by the ideal that the educa-tion and well-being of the student-athlete is paramount. In 2007, he was recognized by the American Football Coaches Association with the Amos Alonzo Stagg Award, which honors some-one “whose services have been out-standing in the advancement of the best interests of football.” In 2008, he received the Presi-dent Gerald R. Ford Legends Center Award, which is presented annu-ally to someone who has played the center position at the collegiate or professional level, has made extraordinary contributions to his team during his football career and has proven to be an exemplary citi-zen, philanthropist or leader in the business or football community. Curry is a member of the State

    of Georgia Sports Hall of Fame and the Atlanta Sports Hall of Fame. Curry also serves at Georgia State as a Distinguished Executive Fellow in the Robinson College of Business. He is the author of the book, “Ten Men You Meet in the Huddle: Lessons from a Football Life,” pub-lished in 2008. His passion for mentoring young people is also evident in his previous position as the director of Leadership Baylor at the Bay-lor School in Chattanooga, Tenn., where he served before taking over at Georgia State. Curry attended College Park High School in the Atlanta area before going on to Georgia Tech, where he earned his B.S. degree in Industrial Management in 1965. He is married to the former Carolyn Newton of Atlanta, a graduate of Agnes Scott College who earned her master’s degree and Ph.D. from Georgia State. Bill and Carolyn have two children and fi ve grandchildren.

    A name synonomous with CLASS AND INTEGRITY in the coaching profession, BILL CURRY is the architect and builder of GEORGIA STATE UNIVERSITY FOOTBALL as the program’s fi rst head coach.

    THE INAUGURAL SEASON

    GEORGIA STATE 41, SHORTER 7Game 1: Sept. 2, 2010 • 7:30 p.m.Georgia Dome • Atlanta, Ga.

    Th e football era began at Georgia State with a 41-7 victory over NAIA Shorter before a crowd of 30,237 fans at the Georgia Dome Th ursday night. Quarterback Drew Little led the Panthers with a 13-of-17 performance and two touchdown passes, while running back Parris Lee scored twice on the ground. Th e program’s fi rst-ever game capped a preparation period that began in April 2008, when it was fi rst announced that the school would fi eld a football team. “I’ve never been more proud of a group of young men than I am of this group,” said head coach Bill Curry. Georgia State (1-0) piled up 366 yards of total off ense, including 212 yards rushing, and allowed the Shorter off ense inside the red zone just once in the game. Safety Brandon Jones led the defense with six tackles on the night. Th e Panthers jumped out to a 7-0 lead in the fi rst quarter and never looked back, moving the ball 63 yards on 11 plays on the game’s fi rst possession and capping the drive with a 4-yard Lee touchdown run. A 15-yard completion by Little to wide receiver Danny Williams on third down put the ball inside the Shorter 10 and helped set up the opening score. Georgia State scored three times in the second quarter on two Iain Vance fi eld goals (from 22 and 18 yards out) and a touchdown drive of 30 yards aft er the Panthers recovered a Shorter fumble. Little found tight end Emmanuel Ogbuehi for an 8-yard score and the Panthers’ fi rst-ever touchdown through the air. Quarterback Kelton Hill piloted the off ense for the fi rst drive of the second half, which resulted in the fi rst of the period’s two fi eld goals. Hill capped the scoring in the contest with a 24-yard touchdown run with eight seconds remaining in the game. Th e second-half scoring for the Panthers began with Lee’s second touchdown of the game, a 10-yard run into the corner of the end zone with 2:12 left in the third. Little found wide receiver Jordan Giles from 16 yards out for the Panthers’ fi rst score of the fourth quarter and his second passing touchdown of the night. Shorter scored its fi rst points of the game with 8:14 left in the fourth quarter on a 1-yard touchdown run by quarterback Ben Williams, making the score 27-7. Th e Hawks had a chance to get on the scoreboard on their fi rst possession of the second half, but David Guilford hooked the 51-yard fi eld goal attempt wide left . Georgia State fi nished the game with no turnovers; Shorter gave the ball up twice on the evening. “When you don’t turn the ball over and you get some turnovers you almost always win,” added Curry. “Th at is an incredible coeffi cient of victory that we have hammered and preached so hard.” Offi cial attendance for the game was announced at 30,237, with overfl ow into the mezzanine level of the Georgia Dome.

    LAMBUTH 23, GEORGIA STATE 14Game 2: Sept. 11, 2010 • 1 p.m.Georgia Dome • Atlanta, Ga.

    Aft er erasing a nine-point halft ime defi cit to take a lead late into the fourth quarter, Georgia State fell to NAIA Lambuth, 23-14, at the Georgia Dome. Two late interceptions — one of which was returned for a Lambuth touchdown — doomed the Panthers in their second game as a program. “We did not sustain anything running the ball today,” said Panthers head coach Bill Curry aft er the game. “And we couldn’t stop them when we needed to.” Th e Panthers trailed 9-0 at the half before coming alive on off ense. Georgia State (1-1) got on the scoreboard on its second drive of the second half, starting at its own 48-yard line aft er forcing a Lambuth punt. Quarterback Kelton Hill, in for starter Drew Little, took off out of the pocket on third-and-13 and broke free for a 53-yard gain down to the Lambuth 2-yard line. Two plays later, Travis Evans ran 2 yards for a Panthers touchdown, and Iain Vance hit the point aft er to cut it 9-7. Aft er penalties helped stop the ensuing Lambuth (1-1) drive, Georgia State struck again on a 77-yard drive that culminated in the Panthers’ biggest pass play of the season so far. Hill, in again under center, pitched to Rosevelt Watson, who then found a wide-open Danny Williams for a 39-yard touchdown pass, putting GSU ahead, 14-9, with just six seconds remaining in the third quarter. Th e Panthers’ second touchdown drive was set up by a 14-yard pass from Little to Darren McCray

    and a 20-yard run from Evans. “I was proud the guys fought back in the third quarter to get the lead,” added Curry. “But Lambuth deserves the win today because they outplayed us.” A clock-eating Lambuth touchdown drive in the fourth quarter put the Eagles back on top 16-14 with 2:27 left in the game. Lambuth’s game-winning drive covered 69 yards on 17 plays and lasted more than eight minutes, capped by B.A. Davis’ four-yard touchdown run. GSU’s Demarius Matthews retunred the ensuing kickoff to the 32-yard line, but Hill’s pass was defl ected up in the air and into the arms of Darius Buckley, who returned it 37 yards for the clinching score. Lambuth, coached by former Temple head coach Ron Dickerson, used a possession passing game, combined with the running of Marquis Williams to take a 9-0 lead at the half. Williams, frequently taking direct snaps, rushed for 149 yards on 17 carries, including a 23-yard scoring run on the Eagles’ fi rst possession. Linebacker Jake Muasau came up with two turnovers in the fi rst half, getting an interception and a fumble recovery, and also had three sacks in the game. Olufemi Opanubi led the defense with nine total tackles.

    THE INAUGURAL SEASON

    JACKSONVILLE STATE 34, GEORGIA STATE 27 (OT)

    Game 3: Sept. 18, 2010 • 1 p.m. (CSS-TV)Georgia Dome • Atlanta, Ga.

    In its fi rst-ever contest against an NCAA Football Championship Subdivision opponent, Georgia State fell to No. 4 Jacksonville State, 34-27, in overtime at the Georgia Dome. Needing a touchdown and extra point to prolong the extra period aft er giving up a score to JSU on the fi rst possession, Georgia State quarterback Kelton Hill threw incomplete in the back of the end zone on fourth-and-goal from the two-yard line. Tight end Arthur Williams came down with the tipped pass, but aft er one offi cial signaled touchdown, he was ruled out of bounds. Jacksonville State scored on four plays on the fi rst possession of overtime, with quarterback Marques Ivory running four yards for a touchdown. “We didn’t come here to do well against good teams,” said head coach Bill Curry. “We came here to beat them, and there were so many ways that we could have today, but we weren’t ready to take that step just yet.” Aft er falling behind 27-20 early in the fourth quarter, Georgia State scored with 3:57 left in regulation to tie the score 27-27 on a one-yard Drew Little quarterback sneak. Th e tying drive covered 75 yards on 13 plays, including third-down completions by Little to Sidney Haynes for 14 yards and Travis Evans for seven yards. Little hit Danny Williams for 16 yards down to the JSU one to set up the score. Regulation ended in frantic fashion with Jacksonville State in possession of the ball in fi eld goal range on the GSU 20-yard line. Aft er completing a fi ve-yard pass with time running down, Ivory took the snap rathern than spiking the ball or calling timeout to stop the clock and bring up a potential game-winning fi eld goal attempt. His pass was tipped and nearly intercepted by Brandon Jones to send the game into overtime. Aft er allowing a fi eld goal to JSU on the fi rst possession of the game, Georgia State struck quickly on its fi rst drive with a scintillating 41-yard touchdown run by Darren McCray to take a 7-3 lead. On the play, McCray took a reverse handoff from Albert Wilson and streaked down the sideline, fi ghting off several Gamecock defenders to fi nd the end zone. JSU countered with a short touchdown pass by Ivory, who found Jamal Young for the four-yard scoring play on the fi rst play of the second quarter to regain the lead, 10-7. Th e score at halft ime was 17-10 in the Gamecocks’ favor as JSU mounted a late touchdown drive aft er an Iain Vance 39-yard fi eld goal with 4:13 to go in the second. Th e two teams traded fi eld goals to begin the third quarter, with Vance again connecting on a 25-yard try. Down 20-13 in the fourth quarter, Georgia State again struck quickly on off ense. Aft er moving the ball into JSU territory, Evans took a handoff up the middle and eluded several would-be tacklers to go 46 yards for the touchdown and tie the game at 20-20 with 13:26 to go in the contest. Th e Panthers put up 339 yards of total off ense in the game, with Little completing 25 of 38 passes for 227 yards. Receivers Danny Williams and Bo Schlechter were the main targets, with Williams catching seven passes for 78 yards and Schlechter, the former quarterback, bringing in fi ve passes for

    64 yards. Safety Brandon Jones led the defense with seven total tackles. “Obviously, Drew Little was outstanding at quarterback,” Curry added. “Obviously, Travis Evans is a force when he contains his enthusiasm. He is an amazing player. Th e off ensive line took a giant step forward today from last week.” “I’m proud of our eff ort,” said Curry. “We can go back on the fi eld and improve again if we practice the way we did this week, and get ready for the next one, and the next one, until we play like we should virtually all the time.”
