Hokies React to Spring Game Cancellation


Blacksburg -  The Virginia Tech spring football season was supposed to come to an end today...on the field...


but because of severe weather in Blacksburg, the game was cancelled...and it will not be made up.   Lightning and thunderstorms forced Tech officials to clear fans from the stadium before the scheduled start.  Then after 90 minutes, the game was scrapped  just after 5.  The Hokies looked into rescheduling for Sunday or Monday, but weather radar suggested those days would also be stormy.

Frank Beamer, VIRGINIA TECH HEAD COACH, said "The tough part is this thing is so competitive.  We'd like to have had one more day to look at our backup guys and see who we can bring back because we're gonna have to cut, not bring back, we're limited by 105 for preseason practice."

Logan Thomas, HOKIES R-JUNIOR QUARTERBACK (BROOKVILLE), said "Some of the younger guys have grown up and the offensive line has had a chance to jell and get used to each other.  And so, yea, I think it's been a very successful spring."


Jack Tyler, HOKIES R-JUNIOR LINEBACKER, said "You know you kinda miss who's gonna come out in a big stage and play well.  That's like the one thing you don't get out of it, you know, you don't get to see that person who may play a little bit better when the lights come on." 

Saturday WAS successful on the recruiting front as several players at the game verbally committed to the Hokies, led by 6-foot-6 dual-threat quarterback Bucky Hodges of Salem High in Virginia Beach.
