Hokies in the NFL

Buffalo Bills rookie sensation and former Virginia Tech Hokies all-star, Tremaine Edmunds, became the youngest player in NFL history to record a regular season interception when he picked off New York Jets rookie QB, Sam Darnold during the third quarter!

Another Virginia Tech standout, Kyle Fuller (you may have heard of him), leads the NFL in passes defended and interceptions. Apparently he is good at football. Fuller’s efforts directly assisted in the Chicago Bears’ sonewalling of the vaunted Los Angeles Rams offense. The Bears went on to win 15-6. Side note... I started Goff on my fantasy team... that didn’t work out well for me...


VPI opened their home slate with a win over Princeton, defeating the Tigers, 24-16.

Check out these individual rankings! The Hokies feature four scrappers in the top ten! Well done, gentlemen!
