2014 Preview: Linebackers

Bud Foster lost starting linebackers Jack Tyler and Tariq Edwards, but he still feels confident in this year’s group. And why shouldn’t he? When is the last time the Hokies didn’t have decent linebacker play?

There have only been a couple of times over the last decade where I can remember Tech’s linebackers not being up to snuff. Jake Johnson struggled back in 2009, and Lyndell Gibson wasn’t good in 2010, but other than that Bud Foster has managed to get solid, consistent performances out of his group, particularly at the mike spot.
