VSU supporters tee it up

Posted: Updated:

VALDOSTA GA (WALB) - Valdosta State football coach David Dean was looking for a few birdies at the Valdosta Country Club.

The Blazer head coach hosting the team's annual celebrity golf tournament.

Former VSU greats Jessie Tuggle, Antonio Edwards and Dusty Bonner were teeing it up for the Blazer football program along with Detroit Lions receiver Calvin Johnson.

Money from this tournament and auction will pay for the Blazer team to fly to a game this season in Arkansas.

What makes coach Dean feel great is the number of celebrities and supporters who keep coming back for this annual event.

David Dean said. "We have done this for 11 years and we have got some guys who have been here for 10 or 11 years for this event. It just says a lot for the people that play in this tournament and those guys keep coming back every year."

The VSU football team plans to fly for road games at Arkansas-Monticello and Ouachita Baptist this fall.
