ESPN's Titletown winner (to be announced tonight)
I just got word that Valdosta, GA has finished #1 on ESPN's search for titletown USA. It will be announced tonight on Sportscenter.
I immediately thought of Valdosta when ESPN announced their search for Titletown, but figured they'd be overlooked for some city in Texas for High School football. I never dreamed Valdosta would not only get listed but win the damned thing.
The Valdosta High School Wildcats hold the record for the most wins in high school football with 838, have claimed 23 Georgia State Football Championships, and garner six National Championships. Lowndes High School in Valdosta has claimed its share of titles by winning the Georgia State Football Championships three of the last four years. Valdosta State University are the current Division II National Football Champions. This is the second national championship for the Blazers in a four year period.
