Celebrities turn out for VSU golf outing

By Joey Donia - bio | email

VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) - It takes more than just long hours of conditioning and practice for the Valdosta State football team to win on Saturdays in the fall.

It also takes money.

Head coach David Dean and his football team hosting the 9th annual VSU celebrity golf fundraiser at the Valdosta Country Club.

The goal of the outing is to raise funds to assist the football team with travel expenses.

Among those in attendance were former Georgia Bulldog Robert Edwards and NFL hall of famer Darrell Green.

Coach Dean says it is always nice to reunite with former football players. 

David Dean said. "We've got a lot of people that we only get to see once a year that come back for just this tournament. There's a lot of people here in this community that support us."

Darrell Green said.  "If we share with the young people and they get insight to truth and bring integrity and morality that we would really like to see in our society."

The money raised from this tournament helps to pay for a road trip where the Blazers have to fly to Arkansas.
