Nels Williams

Junior student at Virginia Tech studying sports media analytics and covering all things Hokies for the Sons. Writing includes football -- both collegiately and NFL -- and I am the primary beat writer for the Virginia Tech men's basketball team's 2022-2023 season. As seen on the Sons's social media platforms, I mainly direct and produce the "Roots Rapid Fire" series, where I conduct quick sit-down interviews with current Virginia Tech athletes in collaboration with Roots Natural Kitchen. Other video content I contribute includes promotions for game-day pins at Main Street Pharmacy in Blacksburg and on-field videography during football games. Get in touch with me here:
