Valdosta - The American Red Cross began 2007 with a cry for help...desperately seeking blood doners.

The Valdosta State University Football team stepped up to the challenge.

The team invited all students, boosters, and community members to join them in donating blood at their annual blood drive Tuesday.

They say it's the least they can do for the community that does so much for them.   "We just wanted to give back to the community. The community comes out and supports us so much and we are trying to support them right back," says Quarterback Willie Copeland.

Head Coach David Dean agrees.  "The community is a big part of why we are here and what we do. The community supports us and this is out way to support the community as well."

The blood drive will run until 7:00 PM Tuesday at the VSU Gymnasium.

Last year, more than four hundred people donated.  They hope to have about 450 come out today.
