This week, despite another slow start, the Hokies played the most complete final three quarters of the year. All three phases of the game Offense, Defense, and Special Teams played great to put the Deacs away on Homecoming in Blacksburg. This week I’m going to show two plays, one was momentum changer in the fake punt in the 3rd quarter. The second play is the strip sack by Keonta Jenkins in the 4th quarter that is a prime example of much improved defensive line play this week and how all levels had to work in unison to make this play happen.

Here Are The Plays:

Fake Punt 5:59 3rd Quarter

Keonta Jenkins Strip Sack 6:01 4th Quarter

Lets Break These Down:


I am a 5th Generation Hokie. I have Orange and Maroon blood coursing through my veins. I was lucky enough to attend VT from 1999-2003 and graduated with a history degree. I became a history teacher and football coach working my way to spending multiple seasons as Head Coach at schools in North Carolina and Colorado.

I now live in Colorado, with my wife and son and do what I can to follow the Hokies from afar. The outstanding team here at Sons of Saturday was gracious enough to let me talk some football and be able to impart some my knowledge gained from years spent on the sideline.

Aside from following the Hokies in all sports, I am a fan of the Carolina Panthers, Atlanta Braves, and Carolina Hurricanes. I also try to play a lot of golf and enjoy skiing out here in the rockies!
