Junior running back David Wilson became the 11th Virginia Tech player to win
the Dudley Award on Wednesday night. The Dudley Award is given annually to the
top Division I football player in the state of Virginia.

Wilson was the ACC Player of the Year, rushing for 1,627 yards and nine
touchdowns. He was named a Second Team All-American by CBSSports.com earlier in
the week, and further All-American honors are sure to follow.

Other candidates up for the award were UVA tailback Perry Jones and William
& Mary tailback Jonathan Grimes.
