Get ready Valdosta, ESPN is coming back

VALDOSTA - ESPN officials have announced they plan to return to Bazemore-Hyder Stadium on Monday, July 28., at 2 p.m., to film a segment for that evening’s “SportsCenter” broadcast. ESPN will not confirm Valdosta’s status in the voting process; however, they have encouraged local officials to plan an event that represents the community’s winning spirit. The public is encouraged to show their Winnersville pride and pack the stadium, as Valdosta once again shows the nation that it is TitleTown USA.

The stadium will open at 1 p.m. on Monday to allow the public to be seated before the 2 p.m. filming begins.
