It’s finally time for the spring game. Virginia Tech will split into two teams at 4 p.m. today at Lane Stadium for its final practice of the spring.
Demitri Knowles apparently was one of the last Hokies to find out. Told that the maroon team, for which he'll be a wide receiver, will start today's annual Virginia Tech football spring game at Lane Stadium down 21 points, the redshirt freshman was taken aback.
Few people associated with Virginia Tech have a better idea of how quarterback Logan Thomas is doing than his cousin, Hokies defensive tackle Zack McCray.
Just before spring practice began last month, Virginia Tech Coach Frank Beamer announced a reversal of sorts when he decided to allow ESPN3’s cameras to film the Hokies spring game for the first time. But that won’t be the only change when Virginia Tech faithful descend on Blacksburg Saturday at 4 p.m. for the annual Maroon-White game that marks the conclusion of spring practice.
Virginia Tech won five of the six medals in the pole vault as the men maintained their lead in the ACC track and field championship and the Hokies' women jumped into second place.
