Senior Willie Byrn set a high bar for the 2014 Hokies at ACC media days.
Distilled to its essence, Beamer Ball consists of making big plays in all three facets of the game. When the great Virginia Tech teams were doing just that, it was a confirmation of what Beamer spoke of Saturday: the presence of chemistry, trust and togetherness.
Logan Thomas ran 2 yards for a touchdown and then ran for the 2-point conversion in the third overtime Saturday, as Virginia Tech overcame a sloppy performance and beat Marshall 29-21.
"Mostly luck, but a little bit of tip drill," Byrn said.
"At halftime, we talked about it. We're just going to get back to the Virginia Tech way," Byrn said. "They might know what we're doing, but we're going to line up across from you and push you off the ball. That's definitely a pride thing. That's a Virginia Tech mentality. I'm glad we got back to it."
