  1. There but for the Grace of God go I. A young man, a disappointing day and the immaturity and bad luck that goes with youth. Take responsibility, face the music and turn it around. Running away won’t solve anything.

  2. Agee with Jaden. A lot was expected of him this year and his football future with the Hokies appears slim with this being his second suspension. Hope he can get his life back in in order. Might need new surroundings at a different school.

  3. Hopefully he is getting help and attention that is needed. That high a BAC and the location where he was arrested is alarming.

    Football at the end of the day is just a game and life is way more important.
