VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) - To say Valdosta is embracing their new Title Town distinction is an understatement. They are relishing in it.

"We'll be putting the sign on the gateway to Valdosta city limits," says Valdosta Mayor John Fretti.  "We are going to use Title Town as a tag on all our economic development efforts, we are going to proudly display title town on our letterhead."

City Hall has been flooded with calls. High schools from around the country want to play the Wildcats and Vikings. New businesses want to open their doors in Title Town. And come football season, you'll even get to purchase a vacation package to see the Title Town teams.

"Come to Valdosta Friday night and watch a football game. Spend the night, do some shopping, visit Wild Adventures then come to a University Division II game and enjoy yourself."

This building will soon be the home to Title Town Realty.  "I imagine we'll see title town roofing, title town this and that and I'm excited about that," Fretti says.

So don't tell anyone in Valdosta Title Town is just a made up distinction because here--like their nick name of Winnersville--it validates their past, embodies their spirit of competition and energizes future athletes to live up the the name.
