Where I Come From: Who are Your All-Time Favorite Hokie Players?

There have been some great players to come through Virginia Tech the last few years, including Michael Vick, DeAngelo Hall, Kevin Jones and Eddie Royal. But my favorite players are rarely the guys who grab headlines. It's easy to count guys like Vick and Bryan Randall as your favorites, but here are the guys I consider my favorite Hokies of all time:

QB Will Furrer - Well, my pseudonym IS furrer4heisman and with good reason. Furrer led the Hokies in passing for four seasons and was Tech's quarterback when I first started to follow Hokie football.

FS Justin Hamilton - Hamilton played three positions is five years at Tech and was moved from offense to free safety (the quarterback of the defense) and helped anchor the 2005 defense, which is one of the best we've seen in Blacksburg. I think Hamilton personifies the self-less worth ethic that we've come to associate with Hokie football over the past few years.

DE Darryl Tapp - Another guy from that 2005 team, Tapp was a great leader and a fun defensive player to watch.

LB Cody Grimm - What is there to not like about Grimm? He was a former walk-on who was an undersized human wrecking ball from the whip linebacker position and was probably most fans' favorite from last year's team.

Who are your favorite Hokies? I have a feeling Bryan Randall is going to get a lot of votes, as he should.
