Valdosta State pound Ouachita-Baptist 31-3

September 29, 2007

Valdosta -- Former Americus standout Michael Terry rushed for a career high 181 yards and two touchdowns, as Valdosta State beat Ouachita-Baptist 31-3 on homecoming.

Terry's mark is the highest for a Blazer running back in five years.

VSU finished with 519 yards of total offense, as Willie Copeland completed 22-of-37 passes for 218 yards.

Former Dougherty QB Ronnye Nelson ran for 50 yards on seven carries.

Terry says, "Last week my teammates gave me a hard time about 'Mike you can always break it long but you can never score.' So, I just had to bring the old high school Mike Terry back."

Head coach David Dean added, "Fortunately for us, our defense played a great game. They started strong and they finished strong. We were able to come out in the second half and make some plays running the ball."

Valdosta State travels to face conference rival Southern Arkansas next week at two o'clock.
