Hokies Chasing the Super Bowl Dream
Six former Virginia Tech players will be chasing the dream of winning the Super Bowl, starting this week as the NFL Playoffs begin. Below is a list of the six (five regularly active although Harper has played this year) Tech players in the playoffs and the teams they are on:
#1 seed Indianapolis – none
#2 seed San Diego – none
#4 seed Cincinnati – Shayne Graham
#5 seed New York Jets – David Clowney
#6 seed Baltimore – Justin Harper (PS)
#1 seed New Orleans – Pierson Prioleau
#2 seed Minnesota – none
#3 seed Dallas – none
#4 seed Arizona – none
#5 seed Green Bay – none
#6 seed Philadelphia – Macho Harris, Michael Vick
In each of the past two years, the Hokies had eight former players on squads in the playoffs, but none have won the Super Bowl. Eric Green was on the Arizona Cardinals last year, but didn’t dress in the Super Bowl, which the Cardinals lost.
