At yesterday’s presser, Virginia Tech cornerbacks coach Brian Mitchell, talked about what his impressions were early in fall camp. In one word: competition. Mitchell had an impressive playing career at B.Y.U., and played three seasons in the N.F.L. with the Atlanta Falcons. His coaching career began at B.Y.U., and had stops with Texas Tech, East Carolina, West Virginia, and finally Virginia Tech. When Mitchell signed with Virginia Tech, the twittersphere was aflame. Any time you get a quality coach is a good thing. Any time you get one over on West Virginia, even better!
Coach Fuente also had some interesting things to say at yesterday’s press conference. He loves the youth on this team, something he has alluded to previously, and mentioned there was some serious young talent on defense. Safety Terrell Edmunds had a chance to talk goals, and what the expectation has become. The more we hear these reports about the defense should make any Hokie ready for a memorable 2017.
