Kicker Remington Hinshaw transferring to Virginia Tech

With a name like Remington Hinshaw, you know he's a badass!

You can add another name to the line of succession behind Virginia Tech place-kicker Cody Journell, who will be a fifth-year senior this fall.

Remington Hinshaw, a two-sport standout at Patrick Henry High School in Roanoke, is transferring to Tech after two seasons at Richmond.

Hinshaw was 17 of 26 on field goals in two seasons at Richmond, including 15 of 22 in 2012, when he set school records for field goals in a game (four) and most kicking points in a game (17 against VMI).

Hinshaw will be a junior in eligibility when he becomes eligible for the Hokies in 2014.

Eat your vegetables.

So now we have, what, like 8 kickers? Is this how we plan to improve Beamerball?

Someone else pointed out this nugget in the article:
