Virginia Tech players give head coach Justin Fuente a birthday present

And the head man enjoyed it.

Virginia Tech head coach Justin Fuente turned 45 years old on Friday and his team wanted to do something big for the bossman.

So, a large group of Hokies picked the head coach up and dropped him in the tub.

How did the coach feel about it?

See for yourself.

Fuente loved it. He was fired up, which fired up his players even more. It’s always cool to see a different side of Fuente than he shows on the sideline or at the podium. For the most part, he is loved by his players.

Apparently the cold tub dump is pretty popular in the Virginia Tech locker room for birthdays and no one, not even the head coach, can escape it.

Fall camp is set to open soon and the 2021 season is just over one month away, so things will be serious soon enough.

Anyhow, happy birthday, Coach Fuente.
