Orlando - The Hokies are honoring the Connecticut school shooting victims and the similar tragedy on its own campus in 2007 with a helmet decal in practice this week.
The decal is half green for Sandy Hook Elementary School and half orange for Virginia Tech with the number 58 in the center. That's the combined number of victims in the shooting incidents. It also features the word "Prevail" written across it. A smaller decal will be placed on the back of the helmet for the bowl game.
