Have you ever wondered how the Virginia Tech Gobblers became the Hokies?
As you may know, Virginia Tech's athletic nickname was the Gobblers. Some say that they were called this because of the way the student athletes gobbled up their food. As years passed the name fell out of favor and a new bird mascot appeared: The HokieBird. Sketched by student George Wills, the HokieBird symbolizes the power and strength of Virginia Tech athletics.
