The folks that hand out college football's season ending awards have begun releasing their preseason watch lists, and several Hokies made the cut.
Logan Thomas: Tech's r-junior quarterback made the Maxwell Award watch list. The Maxwell is given each year to the nation's best overall player.
Andrew Miller: The r-junior center is on the watch list for the Rimington Trophy, given to the nation's top center.
Virginia Tech has had four major national award winners in the past.
Jake Grove: Rimington Trophy, 2003
Corey Moore: Lombardi Award and Nagurski Award, 1999
Michael Vick: ESPY for National Player of the Year, 1999
Bruce Smith: Outland Trophy, 1983
