Bucky Hodges always rooted for a quarterback who stands just 6-feet tall. So Hodges never thought his height would be a key factor in raising his stock as a college prospect. Until recently.
In my post yesterday about running back Drew Harris having to prep a year at Fork Union after failing to qualify academically at Virginia Tech, there were a few questions about whether or not the Hokies would be able to re-sign him next winter (and for the record, running backs coach Shane Beamer was optimistic that they would).
Virginia Tech's Alexander Ziegler has been named a semifinalist for the Barrowman Award, which is given each year to the top male and female college athlete in track and field.
