BLACKSBURG ( – The Virginia Tech Athletics Department announced Wednesday a Facebook Coach’em Up video contest where fans have an opportunity to give their best pre-game pep talk to the Hokies. To enter, fans must upload a thirty second video to YouTube and then submit it to the “Coach ‘Em Up” contest on the Virginia Tech Athletics Facebook page. Fans can also enter their video via Twitter using the hashtag #CoachUpHokies.

With each entry and vote, fans will receive a coupon for Virginia Tech sideline apparel by Nike. Entries will be accepted through Sept. 4 at 5 p.m., and at that point, the five finalists will be narrowed down to an overall winner.
