BLACKSBURG, Va. (WFXR) – Saturday afternoon at Lane Stadium fans and alumni got a glimpse of Virginia Tech head football coach Brent Pry, and his team. The new head coach hopes that this soft opening provides a good impression for what’s to come in the fall.

“It was awesome. Unbelievable job coming out today. To be honest, the whole weekend’s been great. A lot of excitement and energy for Virginia Tech football…Obviously getting those letterman back, super important to us. This is their program more than it is mine. And when you have those guys back supporting this team, supporting our staff, diving back into this. Listen, they want a winning program here too. They want to see things return to the way they were. They want championships inside that stadium and those guys have done it,” says Pry.

With 15 practices, and spring season in the books. The work is just beginning for Brent Pry and his coaching staff at Virginia Tech.
