Statesboro Georgia Sports

Coach Howell has had a great year over the last two years with an excellent tennis camp at the University of Georgia, with great results for his players and coaches.

Webb has held various positions in school administration and supervision, including principal of two elementary schools. Under his leadership and guidance, the Auburn Sports Network team has provided a world-class product to a global audience across multiple platforms. Davis has helped boost revenue by overseeing the growth of Auburn's sports network and the development of a new television contract with ESPN. One sport has quickly come to the forefront, football, and after competing in three Olympics, Darin and his team began to develop a plan.

Webb received scholarship offers from the University of Georgia and Clemson, but was selected to play for the U.S. men's national team at the 2012 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro. Parsons guided Webb to Statesboro, and Webb selected the 2015-16 South Georgia Tormenta FC team. A year later, he took over the Elbert County basketball team and talks began about a minor league football team.

He was drafted into the US Army and served his country for two years, and he also had plans to play for the US men's national team at the 2012 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro. Webb was recruited from South Georgia Tormenta FC, where he played with his teammates in the USL Premier Development League (PDL).

Georgia scored three more than Georgia Southern and came within a point of a 3-2 victory over Georgia State in the second half on Saturday night. To help the Georgia team take the lead, he was part of a second-half comeback after a two-goal deficit against the Eagles.

After taking a 24-point lead with 13: 53 left, the Marines fought back and halved the lead in the second half with two goals in two minutes to end the game.

With renewed momentum going into the final quarter, the Trojans went on an 11-1 run to extend their lead to 18 points and ensure the Eagles were 0-10 against Little Rock. The Mariners scored 39-46 at halftime for the Eagles and led by five points at halftime but only by four at halftime. Georgia Southern head coach Chris Collier and his staff dealt with an ever-changing defensive system that slowed Little Rock's offensive to a normal pace. Whiley Southern did his best to keep the ball away from Colliers. Despite a defensive performance from the Mariners, who forced 15 turnovers and recorded five steals, their offense was more efficient.

The Trojans took an early lead, taking a 21-7 lead in the first quarter and exiting the game after the first intermission with a crazy school reeling. With a hit percentage of 66.7 percent in the team and two steals from their captain, victory seemed within reach.

Georgia Southern shot 60.4 percent from the field and from the free throw line, but the Mariners as a team shot 44.1 percent from the field.

The Yellow Jackets have a 2-1 record against the Mariners (1-0) at Georgia Southern since 1999, but showed their worst performance since an 0-3 in 2012.

Tech has gone 5-0 on the road this season, picking up road wins in four of its last five games against the Mariners (1-2). Tech has ridden a three-game winning streak against Georgia Southern (2-1) to its first win in the series since a 4-3 win at Georgia Tech in 2012.

Georgia Tech has played in 27 NCAA Regionals, which are tied for third - the highest number in Division I. Eight members of the current freshman class have entered the NCAA tournament, the most of any team in the nation and the second - most in a single season - in the program's history. Georgia Tech's first-year head coach, Chris Jones, won a Georgia State title as a freshman in his first year at Tech in 2010.

He was inducted into the athletics Hall of Fame in 1959, and his jersey was removed in 2010. He returned to his hometown of Elberton and coached his high school team for seven years, also teaching woodworking. His career at Georgia Teacher's College spanned from 1952 to 56 and he led the professors to the national NAIA tournament, where he set a 41-11 record. In 1958, he was named college basketball All-American, his first year as a member of the Georgia Tech basketball team, his second season as head coach, and in 2009, the team's all-time career leader in wins (1,843). He was elected to Georgia's Sports Hall of Fame in 2014 and retired from the jersey in 2008, a year after he stepped down.

He was assistant coach of the Georgia Tech men's and women's basketball teams and also worked as a teacher at Georgia Teacher's College, Georgia State University and Georgia Southern University.
