"I’ve always admired the job Frank Beamer has done in Blacksburg, both on the field and away from it," said Penn State coach Joe Paterno, the award’s namesake. "I’ve been especially impressed by his work in the community. He stands for all that’s good in college sports, a great choice for this year’s winner."

Congratulations to Frank Beamer on winning the inaugural Joe Paterno Award, given to the college football coach that "best combines on-field success with academic achievement and community service." This is a huge honor for Beamer and says a lot about how Virginia Tech's program is viewed by those in college football.

Darryl Slater of the Richmond Times-Dispatch reports what we'd hoped: Ryan Williams will be eased back into action this weekend.

"I’ve hosted an event called The Willie Pile X’s and O’s Life Skills and Football Camp, for the past three years in my home area of Northern Virginia. At my camp, we stress the fundamentals of football and speed and agility training, while educating the campers on goal setting. The theory behind the camp is that the techniques we teach will transfer over to any league, including the CFL."

Former Hokie Willie Pile's latest blog focuses on the rules that govern CFL rosters. You can see Pile as well as former Hokies Bryan Randall and Ike Charlton when the Toronto Argonauts host the Winnipeg Blue Bombers on Saturday, Aug. 1, at 1 p.m. EDT on CSNMA, CSS and other regional sports networks.

Virginia Tech: Yes, the Hokies have to go to Georgia Tech on Oct. 17 and anything could happen there. But if QB Tyrod Taylor stays healthy and RB Darren Evans (who set an ACC record with 1,265 rushing yards as a freshman) has another big year, it’s hard to pick against Virginia Tech. We’ll know how good the Hokies are on Sept. 5 when they play Alabama at the Georgia Dome.

One last thing I forgot to mention in the Farewell to Brian post. I'll be doing a series on the 1999 Hokies team this summer to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the undefeated regular season. I'd like to include stories from Hokie fans from that season. So, if you were a student who followed the team to every game or someone living well away from Blacksburg during that magical season (that would be me) please E-mail me at gobblercountry-at-gmail.com. I'd love to hear from you.
