Hokies Defensive Stars to Move to Special Teams

Posted: Updated:

   The takeaway from Alabama is that the Hokies weren't swamped by Alabama's defense--or offense.  But instead they were swept away by special teams mis-steps.  Alabama's two returns for touchdowns decided the game. Since that time a number of the Hokies senior stars on defense have volunteered their services to bring back Beamerball.   The Catamounts gave up 45 points in their opening loss to Middle Tennessee State--so the Hokies young skill position players..should get a chance to build some confidence But for Logan Thomas and the rest of the Hokies it's about getting into the win column and building from there. Virginia Tech will square off against Western Carolina at 130 on Saturday. The Catamounts have lost 11 straight games.
