    NACOGDOCHES, Texas - The Stephen F. Austin athletics department is partnering with Tagboard in an effort to enhance its social media game day experience.

    "We have been looking for another unique way to enhance our game day experience and Tagboard filled that need," SFA Director of Athletics Robert Hill said. "We are excited to start our partnership and think our fans and especially students will respond in a positive way."

    Debuting this Saturday during football's Southland Conference home opener versus Nicholls State, fans are encouraged to use the official hashtag of SFA athletics, #AxeEm, to see their posts on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram featured on the Homer Bryce Stadium video scoreboard.

    "We are excited to partner with Stephen F. Austin to provide an engaging fan experience through social media," Dan Redwine, the Director of Community Outreach at Tagboard.com said. "It is hard to find more passionate college football fans outside of Texas and we love seeing that passion displayed on our platform in-stadium or on SFA's athletic site."

    Fans are encouraged to connect with Lumberjack and Ladyjack athletics on the department's official social media accounts on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and YouTube, in order to guarantee that their posts are seen and potentially broadcast.
