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.
