About Us

(Colin Walker, Matt Malone)

The Blazer Spotlight is hosted by Colin Walker and Matt Malone. Each week we will speak with a member of the Valdosta State University Blazers athletic program to learn about them and we provide brief updates on Blazers athletics.

Colin M. Walker, Ed.D. – Assistant Professor of Digital Production

Before joining the faculty at Valdosta State, I worked on corporate projects and produced sporting events at other institutions. These projects have aired on athletic department websites, ESPN, the Golf Channel, VICE Sports, and other media outlets. I enjoy working with students to produce media projects that inform, educate, and entertain target audiences. I also work with the VSU Mass Media Sports Workshop class to produce Valdosta State University football games that are streamed on www.vstateblazers.com and basketball games broadcasted on Mediacom.

Matt Malone – Assistant Athletic Director for Development

I was born and raised in Titletown, USA a.k.a. Valdosta, GA. I am an avid Blazer fan and an alum of the institution. In my previous role as the Sports Information Director, I assisted with the coordination of activities with each athletic program at Valdosta State University.
