Looking back with: Sean Glennon (Part 1 of 3)

If there ever was a player who personified the concept of an up and down career, it was former Hokie QB Sean Glennon. From the highs of winning an ACC Championship and being named MVP of the championship game, to the lows of finishing his career on the bench, Glennon experienced it all.

During his time at Virginia Tech from 2004-2008, Glennon was a polarizing figure among Virginia Tech fans, at least on the message boards here at TechSideline.com. From the time the Hokies signed Tyrod Taylor in February of 2007 until the time Glennon finished his redshirt senior year in 2008, the debate waged about whether Tyrod or Glennon should start, whether Tyrod should redshirt, if they should split time … it was endless.

Glennon is also known for taking more than his fair share of abuse from Virginia Tech fans during his tenure at Virginia Tech, and even afterwards, when he started a career as a mortgage loan officer with Home Savings & Trust Mortgage in Fairfax, VA, where he still works to this day.

Recently, I interviewed Sean for well over an hour, and he reflected on his career at Virginia Tech and answered questions honestly about the highs and lows of his career, including his 2007 ACC Championship Game MVP award, his relationship with Marcus Vick, being benched in favor of Tyrod Taylor, the treatment he received from Virginia Tech fans, and more.
