The first day of practice is in the books for the Virginia Tech Hokies as Coach Frank Beamer begins his 26th season in Blacksburg.
105 players are on the preseason roster. The Hokies worked out in shorts and helmets before they'll get into full pads this weekend.
Offensively, Beamer is anxious to pare things down at tailback where 6 players are competing for playing time, including redshirt freshman Michael Holmes and true freshman JC Coleman.
And Coach needs to get down to a workable number at the wide receiver position with 15 in the mix on day one.
Defensively, the Hokies are loaded with potential, but finding some depth at linebacker and in the secondary are training camp priorities.
