Just after popping up on the cover of Atlanta Magazine, the Georgia State football team continues its press blitzkrieg as the season opener edges ever closer. This week you can find them on the cover of ESPN the Magazine’s football issue, with an inside article on the program’s formation and inaugural season. Pictures were shot by former Texan and current New Yorker Peter Yang, who seems to have a little love affair with Atlanta seeing as how much he stops by.

The cover itself was actually shot by Nathaniel Welch, most likely not in Atlanta, but hey, it’s nice to get some recognition, especially for a small program. For any Panther fans or alums (I’m looking at you, Chris Carder!) the season kicks off on Sept. 2nd against Shorter University at the Georgia Dome.
