The following is input from TSL’ers who attended the Recruiting Nights around the state and the region on Tuesday, February 2nd, the day after Signing Day. Here are the recruiting nights that were held. Note that we did not receive feedback from every session … the ones where we received reports are starred:

  • * Charlotte: Special Teams Coach James Shibest
  • * Tidewater: Running Backs Coach Zohn Burden
  • * Roanoke: Offensive Coordinator/QB Coach Brad Cornelsen
  • * Richmond: Safeties Coach Galen Scott
  • * Northern Virginia: Wide Receivers Coach Holmon Wiggins
  • Lynchburg: Offensive Line Coach Vance Vice
  • Charlottesville: Cornerbacks Coach Brian Mitchell

We compiled input from 12 different message board posts and emails in an attempt to summarize the information relayed at the events.
