Valdosta State spring football game ends in a tie

VALDOSTA, Ga. (WALB) — The Tremaine Jackson era is in full swing in Valdosta.

Once again there is a lot of buzz around Valdosta State football, hoping to build on that second place finish from a year ago.

The goal was to end spring camp in a good way on Friday night.

The stage was set for the red and black teams to make one last good impression before spring.

In the second quarter, the black team was in the red zone and quarterback Sam Edwards ran for a 6-yard touchdown.

The black team went up 14-0.

In the 3rd quarter, Ivory Durham threw a swing pass to Seth Mcgill and ran for a 5-yard touchdown.

The red team began to gain momentum.

In the 4th quarter, the red team was down by a touchdown. Isaiah Wilson was wide open in the seam and Durham connected to him for a 30-yard touchdown. It was Wilson’s second touchdown of the game.

The spring game ended in a 24-24 tie, but coach Jackson said all that matters is that the team has improved.

“It’s always good when Blazers win, Blazers won tonight anyway and so we’re really excited about that. A lot of guys have grown. Tonight we saw a lot of things happen, we’ve seen the coaches grow we saw the players grow we saw different situations the ins and outs of the games I couldn’t have asked for a better night I’m really proud of the kids over the last 15 days on what they were able to do and accomplish,” Jackson said.

“I was expecting it, my teammates were pushing me all day, they said I was going to have a big day and I believed them and they believed in me, and I went out and I executed. Come on Blazers, we’ll see you all this fall,” Wilson said.
