With Virginia Tech and West Virginia set to play less than two days from now, head coach Justin Fuente announced on Friday that linebacker Anthony Shegog will wear No. 25 vs. the Mountaineers.

Virginia Tech started the tradition last season, awarding No. 25 to a special teams player who had earned the honor either in practice or in games. Shegog, a redshirt-senior, is the backup to Tremaine Edmunds and played a significant role last season on defense and on special teams. Shegog is the first player to wear No. 25 twice in his career, as Shegog was awarded the number for Virginia Tech’s win over Miami in 2016.
