No more blue non-contact jersey for D.J. Coles, he's been cleared. From HokieSports.com, "He'll be cleared to participate in Saturday's closed scrimmage, but we fully expect the coaches to hold him out as a precaution." Can he shake off the rust to contribute against Georgia Tech?
According to BeamerBall.com the Hokies will wear, maroon helmets, orange jerseys, white pants, and black sacks against the Bees. Here's what they'll look like thanks to the magic of Clark's uniform builder.
The combination was chosen by the seniors.
Deon Clarke jumped Josh Trimble on the depth cart. Clarke's now the backup Backer. He's extremely talented and the coaches are very high on his potential. As the season goes on, if he can put on more weight he might be able to see the field more. Clarke weighed in at 214, by comparison Edwards (who if not for his injury would be the starter) came to camp at 237.
Gayle didn't practice again Friday, and neither did Tyrel Wilson. J.R. Collins moved to stud, Marshall was the other first-team end. Wilson's injury wasn't specified. Gayle's still being held out as a precaution because of his ankle.
