Lawrence Virgil working to make the Saints final roster

Making the Cut
A star player for the Valdosta State Blazers, Seantavius Jones has joined the esteemed ranks of the National Football League. Standing 6-foot-3 and weighing 210 pounds, Jones has the perfect frame to be a successful NFL wide receiver.

VSU still searching for Wallace’s replacement
Replacing coaches is nothing new for Valdosta State and head football coach David Dean.
However, the Blazers do face a little tougher issue in replacing defensive coordinator Seth Wallace who left 18 days ago to be recruiting coordinator and assistant coach at Iowa.
“You never want to lose coaches, but when you lose them in the summer especially after you’ve gone through spring practice, it’s always very difficult,” Dean said this past week. “We’ll find good coaches, that’s not going to be a problem.”
The process for finding Wallace’s replacement is still ongoing Dean said, adding that his search is for a secondary coach, not necessarily for a defensive coordinator.

When Valdosta State fell short of its bid for a second national championship in three years last month, Brianna Hancock thought her softball career was over.
Then she heard from an old high school teammate a couple weeks ago and now the former VSU star is leaving Thursday for the Netherlands.
