What's up Hokie Nation! Just want to say I am honored to interact with everyone today. From 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM EST today, feel free to ask me anything. Leave any questions ahead of time.
I enjoy a great discussion or sometimes a rational debate, haha. I often remind people I was the first Vick at Virginia Tech but because I didn't score any touchdowns, I don't receive the same attention as my cousins who were quarterbacks. But on a serious note, I am the proud father of 3 children and have been married for 17 years. I grew up in Hampton and Newport News, Virginia.
I attended Hampton High School where I played for the legendary Coach Mike Smith. During my senior year at high school, I was selected as a Pre-Season Blue Chip All American, 1st team All District, All Region, and All State as an offensive lineman. I also lettered in track and basketball. I know you saw track but of course I didn't run, I did field events, lol.
I often joke that I am glad we didn't have social media when I was younger because things were pretty crazy when I was in high school and even crazier in college. But I am glad social media exists now because I typically have something to say. But keep in mind I only speak on what I know. I learned a long time ago, stay in your lane or you might crash!
Since graduating from VT, I moved to Northern VA after getting cut from the Baltimore Ravens. I currently reside in Prince William County where traffic "will get after ya!" HaHa. Since moving to Northern Virginia, I've done a lot. I have done radio shows, broadcasted the Virginia Tech Spring Game, become a columnist for 247Sports-VTScoop and a business owner. But my biggest passion is helping others – the youth and their families.
Over the last 22 plus years, I have conducted motivational presentations and workshops focused on empowering youth and their families to become successful in all their endeavors. I remain committed to assisting with the educational, spiritual, mental, and physical development of all young people. In an effort to help youth achieve their dreams of becoming successful, I created Vicktory Life where I am the Director of Student Development. In this role, I advise, mentor as well assist students with their career development, goal setting, and life skills. Oh yeah you can follow my company on Twitter at @vicktorylife.
