Hokies offensive line young and willing to learn


Blacksburg, VA(WFXR) – Virginia Tech played much of the second half of the Old Dominion game with relatively young linemen, including true freshmen Doug Nester and Bryan Hudson and redshirt freshman Luke Tenuta. In fact, Nester made his first collegiate start.

“At times, they played well, and at times, showed some inexperience,” Fuente said. “We’ve got to do a good job as coaches. We got young pretty quickly, so we’ve got to do a good job of putting them in good situations, not asking them to do too much, and then letting them cut it loose and go play.”

For the second straight game, though, the Hokies struggled to run the football. Tech finished with 131 yards rushing and averaged 3.4 yards per carry.

“Everywhere,” Fuente said when asked what where the Hokies needed to improve within the running game. “We need to a better job coaching, a better job blocking, a better job running. Everywhere.”
