The Dreams of Champions, Virginia Tech Hokies 2015 Season Kicks Off

New, comments

There are still some of us who find a bit of poetry in the air above Lane Stadium and on the Campus of Virginia Tech. The preparation is over, it's time to play football!

As Summer fades and the hints of Fall tease

The prep is done and past, clipboards noted

The smoke of displays and entry sounds fade

Hands and stares exchanged, last encouragement

The lines form and pause across the green

Faced off in adrenaline pumped anticipation

Band brass flash and crowd's din rise

As in the swirl one lone arm is held aloft and seen

The countdown starts at whistle's shrill marker

The clock winds as hopes soar to greatness

A champion we all can be in that five second dream

Before the thump and the roar makes ... FOOTBALL!
