Free pizza to the first 500 students; bonus points on the Gobbler Student Rewards App

BLACKSBURG – Virginia Tech head football coach Justin Fuente invites all Virginia Tech students to attend next Tuesday’s football practice at Lane Stadium. The first 500 students in attendance at the Student Appreciation Practice will receive complimentary Papa John’s pizza. The Hokie Bird and members of the VT Spirit Squad will be in attendance.

“There’s even more energy and excitement at Virginia Tech when our students are on campus,” Fuente said. “With students starting classes next week, we also want them to gear up for the beginning of football season. Our team has been working hard and we’d like to give their fellow students a sample of what they can expect at Lane Stadium this fall.”

Current Virginia Tech students with a valid Hokie Passport should enter Lane Stadium via gate 6. All doors will be open starting at approximately 4:20-4:30 p.m. and students will be permitted to view practice from the lower level of the west stands (press box side). The viewable portion of practice time will last approximately 40 minutes. Students are welcome to take photos, but at the request of Coach Fuente, no video of practice will be permitted.

Restroom facilities will be open, but no concessions will be available. Students can also check in on the Gobbler Student Rewards App to receive five points.

Media members are also welcome to attend and will be made aware of specifics.

The 2016 football season opener is scheduled for Saturday, Sept. 3 against Liberty, with a 12:30 p.m. kickoff. Student season tickets will be available for purchase on Tuesday, Aug. 23.
