Georgia State basketball coach Ron Hunter always entertains the media during the NCAA Tournament. This time, he made an appearance on a different playing field. Hunter showed up to support the Panthers football team during their annual Spring Game and, like we have seen from many programs before, he was called on to make a special guest appearance.
Hunter took the field on his birthday weekend for a play and hauled in a 20-yard touchdown pass from Georgia State quarterback Dan Ellington, who transferred to the program from JUCO and is competing for the starting job.
Ellington threw four touchdowns on the day.
As for Hunter, he hauled in the touchdown catch with ease, which is more than we can say about Steve Spurrier when he appeared at the South Carolina Spring Game.

After the game, Panthers head coach Shawn Elliott discussed the team’s quarterback competition and he appears to be happy with what he’s seen.
“It takes more than 15 days to let that thing work itself out,” Elliott said. “Certainly leadership dictates a lot of it. We’ll go into fall camp and have 29 practice opportunities before our first game, and we’ll know. The separation will be evident then.”
Georgia State opens its 2018 campaign on Aug. 30 against Kennesaw State.
