Pre-season practice is upon us

The Hokies began pre-season practice today. Despite my incredible apprehension about the train wreck that might happen on offense, I can't help but begin feeling excited for the 2009 football season!!!!!!!!!

The first depth chart has been posted but it's pretty meaningless and each position coach handled it his own way. Kevin Sherman made all 4 WR's starters (Jarrett Boykin, Xavier Boyce, Danny Coale and Dyrell Roberts) to keep everyone on their toes. Coach Newsome sent a message to Vinston Painter and moved him to 4th string tackle probably to light a fire. Coach Hite did the same thing at RB making Ryan Williams 3rd string. Let's not get to crazy about any of this and see what the depth chart looks like after the first scrimmage.

We will keep you posted on major positional battles as well as how the incoming freshmen that are trying to get on the field this year are doing (DJ Coles, Logan Thomas and David Wilson). And at the end of practice we will do a full pre-season breakdown position-by-position.

Hokies football 2009 is HERE so GO HOKIES!!!!

I question moving Ryan Williams to third string... he better see the field... and often this year. I know it's early, but I don't like this.
