Hokies recalling resiliency ahead of Saturday’s game at Louisville
BLACKSBURG, Va. – Resiliency after a loss is something the Hokies are good at. “I just feel like it comes from who has heart,” wide receiver Tre Turner said. “They’re a really good defense, great personnel, very talented, they also play really hard so we have to go out and play really hard and execute the game plan,” tight end Nick Gallo said. But just like Virginia Tech has an explosive offensive weapon in Khalil Herbert, the Cardinals do too in wide receiver Tutu Atwell, who has racked up 450 yards and five touchdowns this season. “He’s a very good receiver, very explosive,” defensive back Brion Murray said.
