Aug 14, 2013

Season Preview

HATTIESBURG, Miss. - Golden Eagle mascot, Seymour, as well as athletic staff members will be visiting businesses throughout Hattiesburg, Petal and Oak Grove this Friday, Aug. 16, to distribute yard signs, football posters and schedule cards as part of the Southern Miss Department of Athletics "Rise To The Top" campaign.

Businesses will be asked to proudly display these items throughout the upcoming football season.

"This is one of our favorite days of the year," said Brent Jones, Southern Miss Associate Director of Athletics for Marketing and Communications. "The purpose of our "Rise To The Top" campaign was to better the way that we engage with our fans, whether it be through Twitter, Facebook or our official website at This community blitz affords us the opportunity to get out in public and interact with our fans in a very personal way."

Photos will be taken and shared via social media as we showcase Hattiesburg and the surrounding areas as the home of Southern Miss.

Following Friday's community blitz, anyone wishing to pick up a yard sign may do so by visiting the Pat Ferlise Ticket Building (West 4th Street). The building is open weekdays from 8 a.m., until 5 p.m.
