The Eagles are getting off to a rough start in the 2022 season. After upsetting Georgia Tech in the home-opener the team went 1 for 3 against the University of Central Florida Knights in their weekend series.

 Eagles’ fans still showed up and showed out, with an average attendance of just over 2,000 people per game, happy for baseball back in the Boro. Fans like the families of players Jason Swan and Noah Searcy who travel to watch the Eagles play.

 “Since we’re from Jacksonville we try to make every home game and when they have playoffs, we do go to the playoff games. So, we’re here quite often,” said Patricia Swan, mother of infielder Jason Swan.

 Both families have had many important moments in their 5 years cheering for the 

Eagles but their most memorable ones were made together. 

 “Noah and Jason have known each other through travel ball and high school, they played on the same team. So just coming out here watching them play together. One of those things where we were fortunate enough to be able to get him to come to Georgia Southern. Seeing high school travel ball teammates play together that’s been pretty special,” said the father of outfielder Noah Searcy, David Searcy.

 Eagles’ fans will have the chance make memories this weekend when they take on Miami of Ohio here at home.
