Topic - Derrick Hopkins
Derrick Hopkins is not one to make bold proclamations. Virginia Tech's sophomore defensive tackle from Highland Springs High is a soft-spoken young man who rarely talks at length when asked questions during media interviews.
The first time Antoine and Derrick Hopkins played on the same team, they ran around, mostly aimlessly, with a Richmond-area YMCA basketball squad nicknamed the Bulls. Antoine was about 7 or 8 years old, Derrick 5 or 6.
"We weren't getting pushed back. It was just kind of a stalemate," Tech defensive tackle Derrick Hopkins said. "We just weren't as physical as we usually are."
"No, not at all," he said without hesitating. "If a person goes down, the next person's got to be able to step up. We're talented enough to be able to do that."
