Spring is in the air as the Valdosta State Blazers officially hit the gridiron for their first spring practice.
Leading the way is a very much excited first-year head football coach in Tremaine Jackson.
“I slept with my whistle on last night. I was ready to go this morning. It was really exciting,” said Jackson.
Jackson was named head coach in January of this year, two months later and the team is back between the sidelines. For Jackson, he said Tuesday was a special day as he gets his first real look at the talent on the roster.
The Blazers have a number of returning players on this year’s squad including a pair of 1,000-yard rushers.
