Corps of Cadets honors Pickle
The Notebook
The Virginia Tech Corps of Cadets honored Tech football player Dustin Pickle on Thursday afternoon for his support of the Corps of Cadets during his playing career. Pickle, a senior from Salem, Va., received a framed photograph from the Corps of Cadets and a standing ovation at the Corp’s recent Leadership Conference.

Pickle, who would salute the Corps of Cadets after every big play, served as a back-up running back and a special teams standout during his career at Tech. His eligibility expired after the Hokies’ victory over Cincinnati in the 2009 Orange Bowl. He rushed for 61 yards in his career and recorded 21 tackles – all on special teams.
