Ed Williams

After 3 years in Blacksburg, I graduated from Virginia Tech in the spring of 2019. Before transferring to VT, I played 1 year of lacrosse at another southwest VA school, Ferrum College. While I loved the D3 life, transferring to Virginia Tech was the best decision I've ever made. I loved every second of my 3 years and I wish it lasted longer.

You'll have a hard time finding a bigger VT Hoops fan than me. Watching the 2019 men’s basketball team make a run to the sweet 16 is by far my favorite VT sports memory, and I’m excited to watch Coach Mike Young get this program back to that level on a consistent basis.

Besides Virginia Tech athletics, I am a huge D.C. sports fan. The Nationals winning the 2019 World Series is my single favorite sports memory, and quite honestly will be very hard to beat. Hopefully a Virginia Tech football or basketball National Championship will give the Nats a run for their money in the near future.
