Greg Stroman Will Wear #25 On Saturday

Pretty easy call considering the history.

NCAA Football: East Carolina at Virginia Tech Peter Casey-USA TODAY Sports

The honorary special teams captain is a pretty obvious choice. It’s going to be Greg Stroman, who returned a punt 61 yards to the house against Delaware. This will be a comfortable fitting jersey for Greg Stroman. The last time he wore it was in 2016. The Hokies were facing the East Carolina Pirates in Blacksburg, and something magical happened.

Stroman took the punt 87 yards to the endzone last season against E.C.U. . He will have the opportunity to replicate this incredible play, but this time in Greenville. Stroman was tapped to wear the fabled #25 this week after he jump started a stagnant Hokies’ club with a needed touchdown. Stroman is a 6’0” CB from Bristow, Virginia. Stroman is no stranger to big special teams plays. He blocked a field goal against Duke, and believe it or not, punted twice against the North Carolina Tarheels. He was a big part of the kickoff return as well.
