Hokies roll past ECU on Homecoming

Virginia Tech quarterback Jerod Evans accounted for four touchdowns and the Hokies made four big plays on special teams that led to 28 points in cruising past East Carolina 54-17 on Homecoming this past Saturday. The Hokies blocked a punt and a field goal and Greg Stroman returned a punt 87 yards for a touchdown to lead the way. Evans threw three touchdown passes and ran for a score, accounting for 379 yards of offense. Evans has thrown an ACC-best 13 touchdown passes, with only one interception this season. With the win, Tech moved to 3-1 on the season and now has an off week before taking on North Carolina in Chapel Hill for what will be the Hokies’ first true road test of the season. Tech has won nine of the past 12 meetings with the Tar Heels.

Tech athletes talk about summer mission trip to the Bahamas

A group of Virginia Tech athletes went on a mission trip to the Bahamas over the summer and helped out an impoverished community there. They played with the children and also helped build a classroom so that the local church could conduct Sunday morning classes. The group of athletes included Virginia Tech football players Andrew Motuapuaka and Yosuah Nijman and they discussed how the trip impacted them in this video.

After a long wait, Lee honored to be part of the Virginia Tech Sports Hall of Fame

Ashley Lee played football at Virginia Tech more than 30 years ago, but he finally received the letter that he always wanted when he got notification this past spring that he was one of six people being inducted into the Virginia Tech Sports Hall of Fame. He joined other football standouts DeAngelo Hall and Kevin Jones, track star Spyridon Jullien, women’s hoops great Kerri Gardin and former athletics director Jim Weaver among those inducted. Lee still holds an NCAA record. In a game against Vanderbilt on Nov. 12, 1983, he intercepted two passes, returning one 88 yards and the other 93 yards – both for touchdowns – to establish the NCAA single-game mark for interception return yardage.
Lee took time to chat with radio color analyst Mike Burnop about this and more in this exclusive interview.
