Dinwiddie (VA) quarterback/athlete Chris Hall didn’t deny teammate Corey Marshall’s claim that he “almost passed out” after seeing Michael Vick in person at yesterday’s Spring Game, but seeing his favorite NFL player was only one of the highlights on the day for the 6-4, 225-pound junior.
“Virginia Tech is still number one on my list,” Hall said. “It was a great experience. The team played great team defense. They were talking on the field and the older guys out there were showing the young guys what to do. It was a great experience.”

He played solidly last season as a junior, completing 166 of 330 passes for 2,677 yards with 23 touchdowns and 13 interceptions, but it was only his first season as the Generals varsity starting quarterback.
“I can’t wait for the Nike Camp,” Hall said. “I’ll be a great opportunity to show...
