This is the second installment of a lengthy, three-hour interview with Kevin Jones, Virginia Tech’s second all-time leading rusher. Click here for Part 1.

KJ recently graduated from Virginia Tech with a degree in Industrial Design. He also served last fall and winter on the athletic director search committee that recommended three candidates to replace Jim Weaver. One of those candidates was, of course, Whit Babcock.

In case you missed it, it was announced earlier this week that Kevin Jones has been hired by Whit Babcock to serve as Special Assistant to the Athletic Director.

From the press release linked above:

His duties will include representing the Director of Athletics and Virginia Tech Athletics at a variety of campus and off-campus functions and meetings, serving as a role model and mentor for Tech’s current student-athletes in all sports and developing and growing successful relationships with former student-athletes, with a particular emphasis on those competing professionally.

The job will also entail assisting in the recruiting process for many sports in accordance with NCAA rules, along with successful interaction and relationship building with campus administrators and local and regional business leaders and donors. Additional aspects will include outreach efforts and fundraising.

TSL congratulates Kevin on this exciting new chapter in his life, and we appreciate him taking the time for this interview. This part focuses on game memories from 2001-2003.
