    December 6, 2000

    RICHMOND, Va. - Virginia Tech running back Lee Suggs was voted a unanimous winner of the Dudley Award Tuesday night, given to the state's top college player. Suggs received the award at the Downtown Club in Richmond, the sponsor of the award.

    Suggs rushed for a BIG EAST Conference-best 1,207 yards and led the nation in touchdowns with 28. His 30 career TDs match the Tech career record held by James Barber and Cyrus Lawrence. He was a unanimous choice for first-team All-BIG EAST at running back and was one of three to be given the league's Offensive Player of the Year award.

    Suggs was picked first on all 15 ballots. Linebacker Byron Thweatt of Virginia was second and running back Andre Braxton of Virginia Union finished third.

    The Dudley Award is named after former Virginia standout "Bullet" Bill Dudley. Each football-playing school in the Commonwealth is allowed to nominate on player.
