Virginia Tech Scrimmage Report: Ayden Greene’s Confidence Soaring, Backup QBs Go Live

Pop Watson and Ayden Greene are roommates, so the quarterback-receiver connection might be a tad stronger between the two second-year Virginia Tech players than normal offensive duos.

It sure looked like it when the two connected on a touchdown pass during a scrimmage session in Lane Stadium on Friday that was open for the media.

“It’s just a lot of confidence in each other,” Greene said afterward. “We believe in each other. Living together also helps, but I know he’s going to throw it to me because I’m going to make the play for him.”

If there’s a word to describe Greene’s second spring with Virginia Tech, it’s confidence. He has more of it after getting a taste last year, arriving in the winter to get a jump on the season and burning his redshirt in the fall by playing in 12 games as a reserve.
