Students “showed up and showed out” at the Rotunda on Wednesday to throw cream pies at the Eagles’ head coach Chad Lunsford and Georgia Southern University SOAR leaders in an effort to raise money for classroom supplies for teachers and students.

For just $2 a pie students lined up tossing cream pies at Lunsford who was happy to be there.

“I think it’s a great opportunity for students to get out on campus and for students to come out and maybe pie some people,” Lunsford said. “I’m not sure why they’d want to pie my face but we’ll find out soon enough.”
