Hokies quarterback Logan Thomas, mentioned in Heisman talk this year, says the preseason hype and pressure was harder for him last year.
Logan Thomas, HOKIES R-JUNIOR QUARTERBACK, said "I was going into the unknown, I didn't know what to expect. I didn't know really what was going to happen when I stepped out onto the field that first Saturday. This year it's kind of a calmness, kind of relaxing."
