The Georgia Southern University Eagles came from behind to win a thriller last weekend. GSU appeared to be headed to their second loss of the season when former Harlem star Tim Camp came up with the play of the season thus far for the Eagles.
With only 1:10 to go in the contest and his team down by seven, the senior hauled in a 66-yard touchdown pass to tie the game and force overtime.
The Eagles would win 34-27 on an Antonio Henton touchdown run in overtime.
The touchdown reception was Camp's second of the game. He also grabbed an 11-yarder for Georgia Southern's first score. The victory improved GSU to 2-1 this season.
Camp is enjoying a terrific senior campaign. He is second on the team in catches (seven) and yards receiving (139), and his 19.9 yards per catch is tops on the squad.
He should be able to top his career numbers this season alone.
Coming into 2008, Camp had hauled in 23 passes for 253 yards in an Eagle uniform. Camp also has made three tackles on special teams. Prior to this season, Camp made his mark as a special teamer. He has been a quality return man for the Eagles and boasts 18 tackles and a blocked punt during his career as well. The 18 tackles are more than any other Eagle during the past three seasons.
Camp is joined on the GSU roster this season by two other Columbia County products. Former Augusta Christian quarterback Lee Banks wears No. 41 for the Eagles. Banks, a sophomore who led Augusta Christian to the 2006 state championship, is a reserve defensive back for Georgia Southern. Also, former Evans quarterback and punter Kevin Millward is on the squad. He is a reserve punter for the Eagles.
Georgia Southern has three remaining home games.
- Sept. 27 vs. Wofford at 7 p.m.
- Oct. 18 vs. Appalachian St. at 3 p.m.
- Nov. 8 vs. Samford at noon.
