Built Ford Tough! | Special Guest: Isaiah Ford

By Billy Ray Mitchell | September 29

In this episode, The Sons of Saturday welcome one of the best players in Virginia Tech history to the podcast, Isaiah Ford!I Isaiah holds multiple receiving records at Virginia Tech from his 3 years with the Hokies. These include:

Yards gained in a season: 1164

Passes caught in a season: 79

Touchdowns in a season: 11

Touchdowns in a career: 24

Passes caught in a season: 79

In this interview, we go into the complete career arc with Isaiah, starting with his high school career at Trinity Christian, his relationship with VT through recruiting, time at Tech, and now his career in the NFL.

Isaiah is currently playing his 3rd season with the Miami Dolphins and has had a breakout year so far in 2020. Two weeks ago vs. the Buffalo Bills, Isaiah tied a career high with 7 catches and tacked on 76 yards. Just four short days later, the Dolphins took center stage on Thursday night football against the Jaguars. This was a homecoming for Isaiah as he grew up in Jacksonville. The Dolphins ended up winning the game and Isaiah logged 2 catches for 14 yards.

Aside from being a fantastic football player, Isaiah has been a fan favorite and has made it a point to find ways to give back to the community and invoke positive change in the world that we all share.

Most recently, Isaiah has been making an impact with his "Be The Change Scholarship" initiative.

This fund was started to create a pathway for Black student-athletes from Isaiah's home town school (Westside High School) to pursue higher education. 100% of the proceeds raised for this initiative will go towards this incredible cause. The original goal of $10,000 has been surpassed, and all additional money raised will result in more scholarships given out at Westside HS. *See GoFundMe below*

Isaiah is an absolute legend in Virginia Tech history and has been an incredible representative of our university as he continues to embrace Ut Prosim in every aspect of his life. We look forward to watching his career unfold and how else he will continue to make the world a better place!
