When it comes to football tradition at Virginia Tech somewhere behind Frank Beamer and the span of bowl games that stretches more than two decades......is the spring game.
It is important to the fans-- and more importantly it is a showcase for the players to put their talents on display under game conditions for the coaches. Wide Receiver Josh Stanford says he looks forward to showing the fans how hard the team has been working.
But its not all fun and games. With the contact comes risk of injury-- and if you are a Virginia Tech hokie fan, you know your team can't afford that right now. Offensive Coordinator Scot Loeffler says it's the kids day to compete in front of the fans, regardless of the fact that you are keenly aware of the chance of getting a key player hurt. If you find yourself in the stands on Saturday there will be a lot of guys on the field looking to impress both you..and the coaches. The annual Virginia Tech Spring Football game is slated for Saturday at 2pm at Lane Stadium.
