As many of you know this week begins the winter workouts for Virginia Tech football. I am fortunate enough to have an inside look at what is going on and I would like to share my thoughts from Day 1 of Winter workouts. The first thing that jumped out to me was how much of a leader Andrew Ford was. he was very vocal in telling the other player on the team to step up and congratulate players for there hard work as well as being a leader and leading by example. Dadi was also a man possessed during the workout this morning (mainly athletic drills) as he was beating his opponent consistently (Bucky Hodges and Deon Newsome and he also beat Gibson but Gibson also had a good day as well). The last thing I would like to add is who was playing on the maroon unit (first team) for the D-line. Dadi and Luther were the ones most would have figured but the surprise for me was Seth Dooley and Nigel Williams (albeit Woody Baron is sidelined with an injury). Seth Dooley was doing good in position drills but I was more interested in Vinny Mihota. Vinny Mihota has a bit of a learning curve as Wiles had to keep reminding him of some basic techniques like following veer blocks and such. If anyone has anymore questions I'd be happy to answer and Ill try and see more positional groups throughout the week.
