Meet the Blazers

-- — It’s a chance to meet many of the Blazers who won last year’s Division II National Championship. It’s the opportunity to meet the players who have recently arrived to play football at Valdosta State University. It’s the opportunity to meet VSU Head Football Coach David Dean and his staff.

From 10 a.m.-3 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 10, the community has the opportunity to Meet the Blazers.

Held at the Valdosta Mall, the event gives the community the opportunity to welcome and encourage the Blazers for the upcoming year. With autographs, prizes, championship posters and more, it’s a chance for the Blazers to meet their fans and for the fans to meet the players who will soon take the field for a new season.

For many long-time fans, they already know the Blazers and love them. They will come to show support for the team. For others, the mall event is as true as its name — these folks will meet the Blazers, some for the first time even though they may have lived in the region for years.

Meet the Blazers is similar to a pre-season pep rally. It should be fueled by community support, encouragement and enthusiasm, not only for a long-standing local team, but for the returning national champions.

    THUMBS UP: To Air Force Lt. Col. David Rayman. The 75th Fighter Squadron commander recently logged 3,000 flight hours in the A-10C Thunderbolt II. A rare feat. In presenting a Moody Air Force Base story on his accomplishment in The Times, it’s good to see the face and know the name of one of the many pilots who cross our South Georgia skies. Congratulations on 3,000 and thank you for your service.
