Royal and Frye Doubtful for Saturday

Two of Virginia Tech’s key offensive starters will likely miss the North
Carolina game on Saturday due to injuries. Junior flanker Eddie Royal sprained
the big toe on his right foot against Northeastern, and left tackle Brandon Frye
injured his right elbow.

Both players are listed by head trainer Mike Goforth as “doubtful”, per
the Roanoke Times. David Clowney, who started last season and led the Hokies in
receiving, will get the start in Royal’s place. Nick Marshman, who has played
guard and tackle during his Tech career, will probably fill in for Frye.

Royal will also have to be replaced as a kick returner and punt returner.
Macho Harris is the likely replacement on punt returns, while Josh Hyman or
David Clowney could take his place on kickoff returns. Josh Morgan could see
time as the punt returner as well.

The most significant loss is Frye. The already inexperienced Hokie offensive
line will be even more inexperienced against the Tar Heels. Frye, a r-senior who
has started two career games, was one of Tech’s most experienced linemen.
R-sophomore Nick Marshman saw his most extensive action against Northeastern,
and it isn’t clear if he’s ready for the primetime yet. Nevertheless, he has
to be on Saturday.

Champs Sportsbar to Host TSL Game Watching Party

On Saturday, September 9, the first-ever Game Watching Party
will be held at Champs Sportsbar in Blacksburg, VA. The game will be televised
at noon on ESPN, but the party will be getting started earlier than that at
Champs. Champs will open at 10:30 am (per a Champs representative), and the
first 50 people to arrive will receive a free TSL T-shirt.

TSL roster cards will be available at every table, as well as at the bar, so
everyone who watches the game at Champs will be up-to-date with rosters,
starting lineups, and stats for both teams. All this, combined with three big
screen televisions, and numerous smaller TVs, makes Champs the best place to
watch Hokie football in Blacksburg!

Get there early and enjoy a game of pool or darts before watching the Hokies
lock horns with the North Carolina Tar Heels. Discuss the game, and the rest of
the season with your fellow TSL’ers.

Champs Sportsbar is located at 111 North Main Street in Blacksburg.
