Class of 2021: Student athlete plans to continue to lead at GC


Jay Saunders from Moultrie joins Bobcat Nation this fall.

Incoming first-year student Jay Saunders has made a name for himself as a leader—especially on the field.

“When I was like five I started playing baseball, football, soccer and everything else,” said Saunders. “I just love the competitiveness of all sports.”

As quarterback for his high school football team, he helped lead them to two state championships and a national championship. In baseball, the Colquitt County Packers also won a regional title while he was on the team.

“Sports helped me develop leadership skills, learn how to work as part of a team and how to push each other to make each other better,” he said.

He brings his resume for winning and team leadership to Georgia College joining the Bobcats Baseball team as catcher for the 2017-2018 season. But for the marketing major, it’s not just about his performance on the baseball diamond.

“I’m going to try my best to be a leader on the baseball team here, and also try to do well in my studies. I plan to major in marketing and minor in finance,” he said.

With his focus on academics and athletics background, he plans to be a financial advisor for professional athletes after college. To help him achieve that goal, he knows he made the right choice by attending Georgia College.

“It’s a great campus—it’s beautiful. I love Coach Eller—he’s a great coach,” said Saunders. “It is a place where I can compete on the baseball field, but also get a great education, so it’s the best of both worlds.”

Although mom Lisa and dad Jim say it’s hard to send their oldest child off to college, they’re excited for the next chapter in his playbook.

“I’m really looking forward to the baseball as well as the academic side of college,” said Lisa. “I’m more excited because it’s close, so I can get up here an visit and see him.”
