TechSideline.com is pleased to announce that Cory Van Dyke, who has been covering baseball and Olympic sports for us for the last two years, will be our Virginia Tech Football beat writer for the 2018-19 academic year.
Cory will begin his assignment by traveling with us to Charlotte for the 2018 ACC Football Kickoff event this week, and he’ll continue throughout football season, covering press conferences and games for us.
Cory is a rising junior at Virginia Tech, studying Multimedia Journalism with a concentration in Sports Media & Analytics. He grew up in Chesterfield, VA just outside of Richmond and went to Manchester High School. In his senior year in high school, Cory won the Rich Murray Journalism Scholarship, which honors the top high school sports journalist in the state of Virginia.
Cory’s two older brothers both attended Virginia Tech and therefore started the family’s love for all things maroon and orange during the Tyrod Taylor era.
Over the past two years, Cory has written 70 articles for TechSideline.com, primarily covering the Virginia Tech baseball team, including the transition under Coach Szefc last season. Cory has also covered Olympic sports for TSL, writing articles about wrestling, men’s soccer, lacrosse, and softball.
In addition to the Hokies, Cory’s favorite sports teams are the San Francisco Giants and Dallas Cowboys.
Please welcome Cory to the TSL team!
