Blacksburg - Virginia Tech's final scrimmage is this Saturday from 11 'til 1 before the annual Spring Game a week from Saturday. The scrimmage and spring game are open to the public at no charge.
After a strong scrimmage Saturday, the Hokies have elevated redshirt sophomore quarterback Brenden Motley of Christiansburg to first team on the depth chart, ahead of fifth-year senior Mark Leal. The competition is ongoing, though, and the Hokies still have Texas Tech transfer Michael Brewer and true freshman Chris Durkin arriving in the summer. Redshirt-senior flanker Willie Byrn is one of the leaders on offense. Byrn says one main focus this year, especially for the receivers, is more BIG PLAYS.
