Local News

Wednesday night Roanoke College welcomed a legend to the campus. 

Coach Frank Beamer spoke about leadership qualities. 

“At the end of the day, he’s a legend, I mean, he took Tech to whole new heights and throughout his career, he’s gotten to such extreme levels, but throughout his entire career, he’s remained an extremely humble man which is something to be respected in this day and age,” said Logan Bane, a senior at Roanoke College. 

Logan is a senior at Roanoke College. 

He believes it’s an honor to hear Frank Beamer speak.

“If there’s a problem, communicate with the person who can solve it. Here I’m hugging the quarterback. That’s the guy that can solve most of your problems on the football field, that’s the guy you gotta have and I hug him tight too,” said Frank Beamer, Former Virginia Tech Football Coach. 

The successful former Virginia Tech coach spoke to a crowd of people at Roanoke College. 

Beamer spoke as part of the qualities of success speaker series.

The legend spoke just before the unveiling of his statue at Lane Stadium this Saturday. 

“I can’t think of a better man to deserve that then Frank Beamer,” said Logan Bane, a senior at Roanoke College.
