BLACKSBURG - Virginia Tech Director of Athletics Jim Weaver announced Monday that the Hokies will begin recognizing their National Football League alumni at all home football games beginning with Thursday night's ESPN tilt with Texas A&M at Lane Stadium/Worsham Field.

The new NFL Flashback recognition will take place between the first and second quarters of each home football game and will honor former Virginia Tech football players who have retired from the NFL with at least three years of experience. The new tradition's first honoree will be former Tech and Baltimore Colts great, George Preas of Roanoke, Va.
