Saturday was a historic for Virginia Tech. Cam Phillips signed his name in the Hokies’ record books. Joey Slye also entered his name in the annals of Virginia Tech lore. Slye became the career leader in field goals on Saturday (69). Shayne Graham, being the classy guy he is, reached out to Joey on the tweeter.
Congrats to Joey Slye for becoming all time FG leader for Va Tech.— Shayne graham (@Shaynegraham17) September 17, 2017
Don’t get me started on Cam. In short: Cam went Ham. Cam sported the stat line any receiver would dream about. 14 grabs. 189 yards. 3 scores. That sealed the deal for M.V.P. status. The last time a Hokie receiver caught three scores, was “God’s Gift”. Bucky Hodges caught three TD’s in the 4OT thriller against Duke in 2015.
The last time Virginia Tech scored over 60? App. State in 2011. The last time the Hokies had over 600 yards in total offense? Wake Forest in 2010. Virginia Tech had an outstanding 34 first downs, and an amazing 675 yards in total offense. That ties the most prolific Virginia Tech offensive game ever seen. The 1993 Hokies managed to put up 675 against the Pittsburgh Panthers. Anytime to you can get out of Greenville with a win, that’s a good thing. Setting records in the process, even better!
