Virginia Tech Hokies Senior Day View from the Sideline

Celebrating our Seniors with some candids as they said goodbye to Lane Stadium as players. We are going to miss them, but it’s college football and all things come to graduation. GO HOKIES!!!

Pregame was busy and sort of weirdly organized. It was Senior Day.

It was a funny comment from one of my photographer collogues that sort of prompted this updated format for the View from the Sidelines.

“Nobody wants to see pictures from a loss.”

Maybe that’s true or maybe it’s not, but I certainly would rather concentrate on something positive, even if a bit bittersweet. Senior Days happen across the country in high school and college extra circular activities. No matter the size of the crowd or the conditions (three different ones for me - football, marching band, and dance team) it’s so exciting to celebrate the contribution and achievement of completing an endeavor that takes skill and dedication.

So, we’ll reserve the choicer game pictures for the Facebook gallery and give this post over to the Seniors on the football team.
