Problems that needed to be addressed

Fan attendance at home games needed to be improved

Wanted to improve that by 40 fans

The Club needed a mission statement

Doing this will help the club and the public identify the team goals and beliefs.

  • They complied!!

  • “Make sure you head over to the intramural field this Saturday at 1pm as the JSU Rugby Team takes on the Auburn Tigers in what has become a friendly rivalry,” said Matt Singleton in one of his broadcast. “Admission is free and should be full of lots of hard hits has our defending GRU champs defended their title.”
