VALDOSTA, Ga. (WCTV) -- If you need further proof that Kerwin Bell has restarted the fire at Valdosta State University, one might need to look no further than this past Saturday, when the Blazers scored four offensive touchdowns in five plays en route to a 42-3 win at Mississippi College.

It was a testament to explosiveness and efficiency.

"I've coached and played this game for a long time and I've never seen anything quite like this or anything close," Bell said. "The thing about it was those four touchdowns were really executed well."

VSU's offensive evolution has coincided with that of quarterback Rogan Wells. The redshirt sophomore's newfound ability to get the ball downfield has lit a fire under the Blazers' attack.

"He threw all arm last year, this year we got him using that explosive body to throw the football and it's really paying dividends," Bell explained. "He's the key for us; he's been special all year and we just
see him continue to develop. He's got a lot of players around him helping to make those plays."

But, don't let the hot start fool you: The Blazers aren't taking Saturday's showdown at home against winless Delta State lightly. The Statesmen have played a brutal schedule and are perennial contenders in the Gulf South.

"If you've ever seen a trap game, this is it because where we're at, 5-0, and the next four games after this are teams that everyone thinks is leading our conference," said Bell.

So, this Saturday, VSU looks to keep the home fires burning and continue to Blaze a trail back to greatness.
