Hokies in the NFL

Former Virginia Tech Hokie defensive back, C.J. Reavis, made his regular season NFL debut last Sunday. Reavis assisted the Jacksonville Jagaurs in shutting out Andrew Luck and the Indianapolis Colts on the way to a 6-0 victory. It has been quite a road, for this young man, as he reached for his professional dream. Congratulations on making it Mr. Reavis!

In the future you can expect the exploits of the Virginia Tech wrestling team to be regaled in greater detail, but let’s get a little caught up before the Hokies get going again tonight! VT kicked off the season against No. 7 Missouri, a program they have struggled with in the past, losing to them for the past two years. Unfortunately, the third time wasn’t a charm for the Fighting Gobblers, and Mizzou collected their most dominant victory yet, winning 8-21. Life didn’t get easier as the Hokies next grappled with No. 25 Northwestern and were again defeated, albeit much closer, 16-20. Virginia Tech will host their first home match of the year tonight at 7 PM Eastern against those pesky Princeton Tigers. Wait a minute... Missouri Tigers... Northwestern Wildcats... Princeton Tigers... a lot of felines happening here... Anyway, good luck gentlemen! Go Hokies!

Women’s Basketball

After dispatching Radford, 55-44, the women of Virginia Tech have improved to 9-0.

Women’s Soccer

The Florida State Seminoles might’ve won the 2018 NCAA Championship, but the Virginia Tech Hokies finished in the Top 25 of two final season polls.
