Georgia Military College Hosts Meet Your Bulldogs Community Pep Rally

Football season is here, and the Georgia Military College Junior College Football team was introduced to the community of Milledgeville at GMC’s Meet Your Bulldogs community pep rally on Thursday night ahead of their first game next week.

School spirit was present at the outdoor event as community members met the GMC JC football team, where they got autographs, took photos, and chatted with one another before each player was introduced on GMC’s historic Davenport field. With 115 players, more than half are from Georgia, including 17 players from our local area of Central Georgia.

“It was amazing to have our community come out to support our Bulldogs,” said Rob Manchester, GMC JC Head Football Coach and Athletic Director. “Our players are really pumped up for the season because of the support they received at Meet Your Bulldogs. We are thankful to have our community behind us and we thank everyone for showing their bulldog pride as they met their hometown team!”

GMC is grateful for the support of the community at the inaugural Meet Your Bulldogs event including the local businesses on site: Southern Dawgs BBQ, Old Tyme Delicious Hotdogs, Agave Azul, Kona Ice, and Lake Country Bouncers.

The GMC JC football team will kick off their season on Saturday, September 4, 2021, at Monroe College in New York. The first GMC home game will be Saturday, September 11, 2021, at 1 p.m. on Davenport field, where their will be a special Patriot Day recognition during halftime.
