First full pad practice for Hokies

Today marked the first day the Hokies practiced in full pads this fall, as preparation for Virginia Tech's first game against N.C. State continues.

The team's official report on the practice mentioned the team workout featured two periods of pass skeleton drills, where the offensive quarterbacks and receivers tested the passing game against the defensive backs and linebackers. It also featured two periods against the scout-team and several "skill development" periods.

In the pass skeleton drills, Tech quarterback Marcus Vick got off to a bit of a slow start, completing 3-of-7, with one nice, mid-range pass to tight end John Kinzer. Sean Glennon then got the next five snaps, and completed 4-of-5. Cory Holt completed 3-of-4 before Vick came back in and got the final four snaps. In that segment, the redshirt junior completed all four of his pass attempts. None of Tech's quarterbacks threw interceptions on this day.

...As the season approaches, the Hokies will begin two-a-day practices tomorrow, with morning practices going from 6:00-7:40 A.M., and evening workouts being conducted from 3:15-5:30 P.M.
