Former VT Football Player Speaks to Bedford Students


Bedford, VA – Former Virginia Tech football player Jarrett Ferguson spoke to male students at Bedford Middle School Monday, as part of a new program.

Ferguson was invited to the school for the 'Building Men of Substance' program. Monthly speakers address topics like respect, success, having values, knowing how to communicate, and how to act in a relationship.

Ferguson, who graduated from Staunton River High School, became a walk-on for the Hokies. He returned to Blacksburg after a brief stint in the NFL. Ferguson is now the Director of Strength and Conditioning for the football program at Tech.

"It helped me when I was younger to have good coaches, good assistant coaches that I keep up with today," said Ferguson. "I think this is going to be a long lasting deal for the kids."

Ferguson says he knew he had to work hard on the field and in the classroom, because getting a scholarship was the only way he could stay at Tech.
