First-class facilities

The Hokies' football success can be traced in part to the first-class facilities the team uses on a daily basis. While the results are apparent on game day in Lane Stadium, there are many other facilities that help the Hokies in all phases of preparation. It is the work that is done in these areas that leads to success both on and off the football field.

Academic success

Of the 13 seniors on the 2014 roster, there are eight Hokie graduates, with the other five on track to graduate this year. David Wang has already graduated (business degrees in three years) and earned a second undergraduate degree last past summer and both Chase Williams and Laurence Gibson will earn a second undergraduate degree this fall. In 11 of the past 13 years, Tech has graduated at least 70 percent of its class and since 2001, there have been 229 senior Tech football players on the roster with 213 earning their degree. That is over 93 percent!

ACC Honors

The 2013 Virginia Tech football team won eight games to earn a bid to the Hyundai Sun Bowl in El Paso, Texas. Individually, 10 players were honored by the ACC, including Kyle Fuller, who was named to the Coaches' All-ACC First Team, and Kendall Fuller, who was named the Defensive Rookie of the Year.
