Experts in the Media: Georgia Southern's famous Freedom was dominating the airwaves after a recent announcementNovember 3, 20231 min read
It's been called the most exciting 30 seconds in college football - and recently Freedom, Georgia Southern University’s live bald eagle mascot that flies before each home game was flying high with some serious media attention on TV, radio and print.
Unable to survive on his own because of an injury to his beak as a newborn, Freedom came to Georgia Southern in 2004 and now lives at the University’s Center for Wildlife Education in Statesboro alongside other eagles, raptors, reptiles and waterfowl. He will celebrate his 20th birthday this December.
The school recently launched a new line of merchandise - and the news soon went viral putting Freedom and his handler, Wildlife Center Executive Director Steve Hein in the spotlight.
