Recently, former Virginia Tech offensive lineman Dwight Vick has been interviewing other past Virginia Tech players as a way to help bring awareness to his Vicktory Life mentoring service. The resulting conversations and discussions are enlightening for Hokie fans.  Dwight has been gracious enough to allow us to share those interviews on TSL.

Vicktory Life provides therapeutic mentoring and outpatient counseling to youth and their families with a goal to empower middle and high school students to develop the necessary life skills needed to achieve their academic and career goals. Services provided by Vicktory Life include mentoring, internships, and parent coaching. To learn more about Vicktory Life, read below.

We’ll post each of Vick’s video interviews with past Tech players, and today we bring you a great feature with former Virginia Tech rover Aaron Rouse, who went on to an NFL career after his days in Blacksburg.

  1. Really great stuff. Dwight, please put these interviews in a book–“Vicktory Road: Tales from the Hokie Huddle” or some such thing. These interviews are invaluable from so many perspectives.

  2. This is a great interview. Love the way Dwight lets them talk, you feel like you’re really “inside the game”. FC grad in ’75, our coaches were special. Love hearing Aaron mention the teammates, opponents, and coaches that impacted him.

  3. This is one of the most real life, honest interviews I have heard from a former player. I have to admit, I thought he was hot headed at VT, and almost got kicked off the team. To see what he has became makes me proud for him. I believe this is the role model the world needs today to help us through troubling times, as he relates to fellow citizens at the level of being real to their needs. Awesome interview Dwight, great job!

  4. This was very impressive! So glad to have listened in entirety! You think you know our past great Hokies until you learn so much more ‘to the story.’ Well done!!! And thank you!

  5. Aaron Rouse is one impressive guy. He clearly has a vision and exhibits the characteristics to be a real difference maker.
