The Valdosta State Blazers offensive expectations remain high despite having only one senior starting.

Chris Hatcher said, "Our biggest question mark is how are these guys going to perform when the lights come on, and that's probably the biggest question we have right now as a football staff."

The Valdosta State Blazers and Chris Hatcher are used to one thing, scoring points, lots and lots of points.

Tyler Aurandt said, "We're going to be able to put up a lot of points like he's used to doing. I know he'll be pleased if we can do that. I know that's our goal this season, put up a lot of points."

But this year the Blazers will a brand new backfield and new signal caller Willie Copeland who’s not shy about his expectations for the offense.

Willie Copeland said, "I think this team has the capability to score about 70 points a game at any game. All we've got to do is execute."

But with a young team, what looks good on paper, doesn't always turn out that way.

Hatcher said, "I think they'll be fine if they play like they've been practicing, we'll be okay."

And okay for VSU is finding the endzone early and often.
