Good Morning Hokie Nation

It is so great to finally be the morning of gameday for the Virginia Tech Hokies as they look to open their season strong against their opponent in the Old Dominion Monarchs. Brent Pry and his Hokies have been working all summer and at the start of the school year and the fans of Hokie nation can’t wait to finally see their team on the field again. After what was a an underperforming season for the Hokies in which they finished 6-6, they look to start strong with their new regime focused around head coach Brent Pry, offensive coordinator Tyler Bowen, and defensive coordinator Chris Marve. Meanwhile across the state in Norfolk, the Monarchs are also coming off of a 6-6 record in which they started the year 1-5 but finished strong in the regular season. The Hokies look to move their record to 3-1 against the Monarchs all time and avenge their lose in 2018.

Born in Chesapeake and raised into a family of hokies, Virginia Tech is where I call home now. Attended New River Community College as a freshman and now a sophomore at VT as a transfer student in Fall 2022. Majoring in Sports Media and Analytics, I’m excited for what’s to come for me as a student at VT.

Virginia Tech sports has always been something I have been a fan of. From afternoons in Lane Stadium to nights in Cassell Coliseum, I have loved every second of it no matter the outcome.

One of my first memories of being a Tech fan was our upset win against Ohio State 35-21 where CB Donovan Riley had the game sealing pick-6. More recently, beating UNC in 6 overtimes, our run to the sweet 16, and of course winning the men’s basketball ACC Championship with upsets over UNC and Duke.
