Any coach will tell you there are three parts to a season, non-conference, conference, and postseason. The Valdosta State football team is officially entering season number two. The Blazers are 3-0 as they open Gulf South play at home this weekend.
Two weeks ago, Hurricane Idalia made landfall in the Big Bend of Florida. Along with countless people who were without power, some lost their homes, and athletic facilities weren’t spared either. At Madison County High School, Boot Hill’s scoreboard and other signage was damaged, but the Cowboys have stood strong, and they’re ready to make their return to their home field this Friday night.
Valdosta State football is already off to a better start than they were a year ago. The Blazers are 2-0 after gutting out a win over Albany State over the weekend, but things are not going to get any easier, as one of the top teams in NAIA football is rolling into town this weekend.
