Blazers build house into home

February 1, 2008

Valdosta- How would you like some National Champs to build your home?

Well, that's exactly who's building the home for one Valdosta family.

The Valdosta State Blazers Championship football team, cheerleaders and the school's other athletes have teamed up with Habitat for Humanity.

They've spent the month building this home on South Oak Street from the ground up.

They say they're just excited to find a way to give back to the community who gives them so much.

"We just receive so much support from the community for all sports and its just nice to give back something, helping people out," says Cheerleader Morgan Seegmueller.

They hope to finish the home by the end of Saturday.

This is the fourth year the athletic department has participated in Habitat's Blazer build.
