After a massive vote tally from Eagle Nation, the Georgia Southern Athletics Department unveiled the new field design for Glenn Bryant Field at Allen E. Paulson Stadium and the Anthony P. Tippins Indoor Practice Facility.
The designs at the two facilities will match to ensure the Eagles are playing on the same field no matter at which location they practice. The turf at Paulson Stadium has run the course of its lifespan.
The final design wasn’t one of the four initial choices. But enough comments inspired a blend of the best elements of the two highest vote receivers.
“The construction of the Tippins Family Indoor Practice Facility is a game-changer for this program and the decision to have matching turfs will help us prepare the same regardless of where we practice,” said Georgia Southern head football coach Clay Helton.
“It was a really awesome idea to have our fans, who are the best fans in the country, vote in determining the look of the field and I can’t wait to see the finish product rolled out next year.”
The Tippins Family Indoor Facility will be complete this spring. The turf for Paulson Stadium will be replaced during the offseason.
