ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Valdosta State will honor 25 seniors who are playing their final regular season home game Saturday against West Georgia.

Ronnye Nelson said. "Every day I tell my teammates that my time is winding down here. It has been a good road for me. Right now we are just trying to go out and a good performance together so we can keep playing together at home."

One of those is running back Ronnye Nelson.

The former Dougherty High Trojan has been a versatile weapon for the Blazers.

Nelson returns kicks, catches passes and runs the VSU Wildfire formation.

With the Blazers ranked second in the first super region polls, Ronnye is telling his teammates to not let up so that tomorrow will not be his final game at Bazemore-Hyder Stadium.
