VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) -
The second title town showcase took place today at Valdosta State, allowing young players with the ambition of playing college football, to show their talents in front of coaches from all over the country.
"It's big for us. We appreciate all the other schools coming and getting involved. It really creates a great atmosphere here. It's a great showcase for young kids, to be able to come out and be seen by a lot of colleges."
Over 400 kids took the field today, stretching from South Georgia to North Florida, in hopes of being the talk of the camp, and being seen by a program that they could possibly call home for the next four years.
"Getting to be in one place and get evaluated by all the different staffs, and get their name out there, it makes it easy for them."
Coaches will tell you, that the best thing about camps like these, is it allows them to stack some of the best players in the state, side by side.
"One of the things about combines, people don't get, is it gives you a chance for your kids, to see other kids. All they see is what they see every day. They come here, they see kids from Valdosta, Cairo, or Wayne County or wherever. And they see what they are up against."
