Tavante Beckett
Tavante Beckett (14) was one of the true freshmen to play for Virginia Tech against Liberty.

I’ve got a few more related Virginia Tech notes that didn’t make it into yesterday’s article.  Also, I’ve included a quick discussion on some other programs around the country after I was able to watch a lot of college football on Saturday.

Six True Freshmen Play Against Liberty

Several true freshmen saw action for the first time on Saturday afternoon against Liberty.  Here’s a quick recap…

LB Tavante Beckett: I didn’t see Beckett on defense.  Jamieon Moss got the reps with the No. 2 defense late in the game, unless I just happened to miss Beckett being in there.  I assume all of Beckett’s work came on special teams, though I’m not sure which units.

ROV Reggie Floyd: Terrell Edmunds seemed to get a little banged up late in the game (nothing serious) and he came out during the middle of a drive later in the game.  Floyd replaced him and had to make a good open field tackle on his first play.  As they say in baseball, if you’re a new player on defense, the ball will always find you.

DB Jovonn Quillen: I didn’t notice Quillen in the game, but HokieSports.com says he played.  I’m sure his plays came on special teams.

WR Eric Kumah: Kumah got into the game late at wide receiver.  I’m sure the staff is expecting his role to increase as he continues to develop.

WR Divine Deablo: Deablo got a decent amount of playing time on offense, though he didn’t catch any passes.
