Virginia Tech has released their 2014 spring practice schedule. The Hokies will practice 15 times as usual, and that includes the Spring Game.
Tech normally holds Monday-Wednesday-Friday-Saturday practices in the spring, but their schedule has changed this year. They will practice Thursday, Friday and Saturday of this week to get the required light practices out of the way, and then they will progress to practicing in pads next week. As a result, there will be three open scrimmages this spring, NOT including the Spring Game. Tech fans will have four chances to see the Hokies in action.
Scrimmage #1: Saturday, April 5, 3-5pm
Scrimmage #2: Saturday, April 12, 11am-1pm
Scrimmage #3: Saturday, April 19, 11am-1pm
Spring Game: Saturday, April 26, 2pm
Fans will be asked to sit in the West Stands for all open scrimmages.
BOV approves interim financing plan for Indoor Practice Facility
The Virginia Tech Board of Visitors approved an interim $21.3 million financing plan for the new indoor practice facility. Construction is set to begin this summer, and the new facility will open in August 2015.
Virginia Tech has already raised $12.3 million in private donations for the project. The remainder of the amount will be paid through financing.
Right now, the football team holds indoor practices in Rector Field House, which is outdated and lacks the needed space and ceiling height.
