Valdosta - The Valdosta State Football team won the National Championship.

Now, they're trying to win another title.

The players hope to have the largest blood drive in the state.

The Blazers are hosting a blood drive Thursday.

More than 400 people donated last year, making it the largest blood drive in the region.

This year, they're pushing for 500 donors.

They hope that will beat out similar drives at Georgia Tech and UGA and make their blood drive the biggest in Georgia.

"They have over 40 thousand students and here we barely have 12-13 thousand So if we can beat Division I schools in at least a blood drive, then that's accomplishing more then we imagined," says Defensive Lineman Mark Sibenaller.

The blood drive will take place until 8:00 Thursday night on the track at the PE Complex.
