Blacksburg - The sounds of fall football have returned. On the first day of practice the team looked sharp...but they also misfired a few times. The challenge for Coach Frank Beamer is to eliminate his team's mistakes and to find answers to his main questions.
Another storyline is the offensive line. Andrew Miller of Bassett is the only returning starter. Nick Becton, David Wang, Vinston Painter and Brent Benedict may not have experience but they're all upperclassmen. Logan Thomas has said he doesn't have any worries about the line but Tech fans will until they prove they can play.
James Gayle, VIRGINIA TECH JUNIOR DEF. END, said "I think they're coming along great. It always takes offensive linemen a little while longer to get acclimated because they have to get to know each other better but I think they're going to be just fine."
