Sports

Hokies junior linebacker Tremaine Edmunds has been named one of five Butkus award finalist.

The award is given to the nations best linebacker.

The award will be announced in early December and if Edmunds receives it, he will become the first Hokie to earn the prestigious honor.

“It’s definitely a big honor. I don’t know any of the guys personally, but I’ve seen them play on tv before. It’s definitely a big time honor just to be mentioned in a category like that as one of the top linebackers in the nation. It’s definitely a big time honor, but I can’t take all the credit myself. Credit  should go to my teammates that made me better, coaches that made me better, just everybody around this team that made me better,” Edmunds said.

Edmunds says “it would mean a whole lot to win the award, not just for himself but for the defense and what they are capable of doing.”
