    BLACKSBURG – Woody Baron has heard his uncle tell the story many times. Jim Baron, Woody’s uncle and a former Virginia Tech defensive tackle, started in the 1995 Sugar Bowl game and his 20-yard fumble return for a touchdown in the fourth quarter sealed the Hokies’ 28-10 win over the Texas Longhorns. ...

But the backup to quarterback Logan Thomas has enjoyed a fine August. In fact, offensive coordinator Scot Loeffler called Leal’s performance this August “ridiculous,” saying that Leal can do everything that Thomas can do. ... Read More

    An early start to the day seems like an understatement for football graduate assistants James Hopper, Justin King, Greg Nosal and Ryan Pugh. While all four GAs can call the football offices home during camp, the latter three of the four end up spending the night in the Merryman Center more often than not. In their second week of camp and their final week of Summer II classes, there is a lot of work to be done. ... Read More

    There is never a dull moment for Tech’s Sports Nutrition staff, especially now that football isn’t the only fall sport in season. The Athletics Communications staff took a closer look inside a typical August day in the Sports Nutrition office, and it seems every day is a full one for the department’s director Jennie Schafer, graduate assistant Kelly Masteller and the student staff. Schafer arrives in time for football breakfast every morning, which begins at 7 a.m., before the team’s meetings at 8 a.m. She looks over the day ahead of her before browsing the room to encourage picky eaters and reward the well rounded ones by choosing an impressive plate or two from breakfast and dinner, and tweeting a picture of it on the office’s account (@HokieFuel). ...
