Running Game Relying on Freshmen

The basis of Virginia Tech’s offensive philosophy is having a strong running game.  That will be a big unknown heading into the 2012 season, with an entirely new group of running backs.

On paper, Virginia Tech’s offensive line is inexperienced when it comes to starting games.  However, when you look deeper, it’s not as bad as you might think.

LT Nick Becton: A rising r-senior, Becton has split reps at left tackle with Andrew Lanier the past two years.  He played over 450 snaps in 2011.

LG David Wang: A rising r-junior, Wang was in the playing rotation before being injured against ECU last season.
