New Hokie Swag

Welcome to another edition of Virginia Tech Hokies swag!

I am a bit behind sharing this amazing gift, but I have been rather busy with my real-people job. Boo!

Those of you that frequent our Facebook page, during this past football season, probably saw Facebook Live videos where I would take questions and have a conversation with readers concerning VPI’s football efforts. My father is my biggest fan, and after one video he observed, “You should really have a Hokie football helmet on the shelf over your shoulder when you do these videos.” Well, this past April, in celebration of my continued journey towards middle age, he rectified the deficiency.

Without further ado, I present my latest (and greatest) bit of Hokie Swag: A game worn Virginia Tech Hokies helmet!

He was able to acquire this amazing piece during an online charity auction!

You can see some “war paint” on the white in this picture. It is the No. 2 helmet. ESPN 2016 Hokie roster lists No. 2 as Defensive Back Tyree Rodgers, and I have no reason to not believe that is who, in fact, used this helmet.

Expect this fine helmet to make regular appearances during future Facebook Live contributions!

Thanks for the gift Dad!

As always, Go Hokies!!!
