As reported by Doug Doughty from the Roanoke Times, VT will be welcoming two transfers this fall. The first, Remington Henshaw, a kicker from the Richmond Spiders that will have 2 years of eligibility. Was a 2-sport stand out from Roanoke, transferring primarily for financial reasons. The second is a bruising DE from NY, 6-5" 240-lb Wade Hansen. He is a D-3 transfer. It will be interesting to see how these gentlemen fit into the big leagues!
So after consulting Joe about this, I'm going to share some insight on my day today.
I work at Cassell Coliseum and one of my regular roles is to help coaches/administrators move offices. Today I helped Billy Hite go from his cozy corner office on the 2nd floor to the abyss known as the 5th floor. After I transported the stuff he was keeping he mentioned to me that there was stuff he wanted thrown out. He told me I could go through it and keep what I wanted and after looking through the stuff I thought about the community of TKP. Well now that I am home I have sorted through the stuff and I have included a photo and a list of what was destined for the trash truck.
2015 has the potential to be a very, very good team. I took the time to put down the names that the staff will have to play with.
QB: Bucky Hodges (r-so), Andrew Ford (r-fr)
RB: JC Coleman (sr), Trey Edmunds (r-jr), Chris Mangus (r-jr), Marshawn Williams (r-freshman)
WR: Demetri Knowles (r-sr), Josh Stanford (r-jr), Joel Caleb (r-jr)
OL: Jake Goins (r-sr), Jonathan McG (jr), Augie Conte (r-jr), Adam Tarashe (r-jr), Parker Osterloh (r-so), The "Fab5" recruiting clas (r-fr)
Good article from Doug Doughty from The Roanoke Times on BJ Farrow, an under-the-radar WR recruit from Lynchburg Christian Academy (same as Demetri Knowles). He'll be at VT's camp this weekend, and LCA's Coach Rocco is raving about him as the "best WR he's coached in 10 years".
Yes, Coach Rocco is Mike Rocco's dad, and had some interesting insight on the Phillips Sims transferring to UVA / WTF QB Rotation / Mike Rocco transferring out of UVA / Phillip Sims leaving UVA fiasco.
....2014 could still very well be one of VT's best recruiting classes. We have an opportunity to fill several need positions with very high quality players with the remaining scholarships we have available. We have a reasonable shot to land the following players that we are pursuing:
Alabama's new locker room features an ARCADE???
I will always love our work ethic when it comes to football. All this relaxation for Bama should be enough for us to #BEATBAMA!
Here is an instagram video of Bama offensive tackle Brandon Hill.
Oh and here's that new waterfall they installed that Cornwell talked about:
The little shits don't have to go through the lottery anymore. Thoughts?
Editor's note: Hokie Wartooth was all over this as my head was buried underneath a remote desktop connection configuring the new server (8 cores, 16 GBs of ram!). HokieHaven.com spoke with Pettit—he lauds Tech, and says he's firm on his commitment. Pettit's versatility on the field is impressive, and so are offers from Harvard and Yale. Brains and physical tools are the ultimate combination in football. Finally, how about the job Jeff Grimes is doing on the recruiting trail?
I entered VT as a freshman in 2004. I came from out of state, and was told of the rivalry with UVA, but had never experienced it in person. Regardless, I left thanksgiving break early and headed back to Blacksburg in time for my first Commonwealth Cup. The campus was buzzing. Everyone was fired up. I was fired up. Both teams were ranked, and the Hokies won 24-10. Hooray, in-state rivalries. It was fun, and I looked forward to the energy and excitement that the Commonwealth Cup brought in future years.
My sophomore year we won 52-14.
