Former Tech offensive lineman continues to give back
The Notebook
For the second straight year, former Virginia Tech offensive lineman Brandon Frye made Christmas that much merrier for some kids in his hometown of Myrtle Beach, S.C. Frye, who is now with the Miami Dolphins, paid the way for 13 boys from Tara Hall Home for Boys to receive gifts from a local Target store in Myrtle Beach on Dec. 16. The boys received gift cards from Frye and merchandise from both the Dolphins and Virginia Tech.

Frye was not able to attend because of conflicts with the Dolphins’ practice schedule, but his mother, Brenda Frye; his high school coach, Chad Toothman; and nine football players from Myrtle Beach High – Frye’s high school alma mater – assisted with the efforts, along with Dorothy Long from the local Hokie Club in the Myrtle Beach area.

Frye, in his second year in the NFL, spent his rookie season and part of this season with the Houston Texans. But he signed with the Dolphins in early November and has played in six games since then.
