New Uniforms for VT Football Confirmed

Babcock and Pry confirmed the rumors we've been discussing at the Spring Meetings:

Both athletic director Whit Babcock and football coach Brent Pry, who are attending the ACC's spring meetings at The Ritz-Carlton, confirmed the upcoming reveal.

Some quotes I found interesting/exciting:

Pry said he went to some of the Hokies coaches and staffers who played during Tech's heyday — like defensive line coach J.C. Price and safeties coach Pierson Prioleau — to get their input, presenting them with a lineup of options and getting from them a thumbs up or thumbs down. They narrowed down the choices and repeated the process before coming to a final design that Pry said pulls from the Michael Vick days.

"It's a more traditional look and people I believe will appreciate it," said Babcock, who thinks they'll be revealed in "a week or so."

There will likely be more variety with the helmets in this latest iteration. When he was hired in 2014, Babcock aimed to get the VT logo on every helmet design, feeling that the Hokies had gotten away from their brand with various special designs like the Hokies tracks and Flexing Gobbler looks.

Only Frank Beamer's final game at Lane Stadium, when Tech had a No. 25 on one side and the school logo on the other, didn't feature the interlocked VT on both sides of the helmet since Babock began working at Tech.

"So people may see some of our other logos this year," Babcock said, "and I think they'll like it."
