Hokies growth leads to title game berth

It's been a quite week for the Hokies.

ACC teams had just as much trouble this year with Baron, who was ACC Coastal Division champion Virginia Tech's lone representative on the All-ACC first team in voting done by the league's media and released Monday.

Nothing is set in stone, especially considering the Tigers have one more game to win on Saturday.

Fuente became the fourth ACC coach in the last 20 years to win the award in his debut season with his school and the first since Georgia Tech's Paul Johnson in 2008.

According to the Virginia Tech Athletics Department, Fuente's nine victories are tied with C.P. Miles (9-1 record in 1905) for the most by a first-year coach in Virginia Tech history. Fuente said the players have responded well.

"Congratulations to Coach Fuente", Foster said. "It's awesome for him and its awesome for our program". I think the Hokies will find a way to get the game into their style, more of a smash mouth, defensive battle. "Of course I want to get back there, but that's up to the voters". Defensive line coach Charley Wiles said the athlete "had a great year". Johnson leads the team with five interceptions and was the only first-team selection for the Tigers who was not a returning starter from the 2015 season.

For Wiles, though, the honor is not surprising. I'm thankful for our players and thankful for our staff that we're good enough to be recognized, but that's all I am is a representative. "He really took some games over this year at times which was impressive, but I don't know if I would call it surprised".

Five Clemson players were named to the All-ACC second team: Junior quarterback Deshaun Watson, redshirt junior running back Wayne Gallman, redshirt sophomore kicker Greg Huegel, sophomore defensive end Christian Wilkins and freshman defensive tackle Dexter Lawrence.

Trump chooses South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley as United Nations ambassador
Throughout the Republican nomination campaign, she vehemently supported Florida Senator Marco Rubio in the SC primary. President-elect Donald Trump says he intends to nominate Haley to be the next USA ambassador to the United Nations.

There is no clear cut Heisman Trophy favorite. "We're going to roll our sleeves up and get to work.' And that's the only way he knows how to do things", Rogers said. "I don't if anybody has".

Virginia Tech's Justin Fuente is the Atlantic Coast Conference's coach of the year and Florida State quarterback Deondre Francois was selected as its top rookie both on offense and overall.

In what was perhaps Motuapuaka's best game of the season, he registered two takeaways that included an interception, as well as a fumble recovery that he returned 70 yards for a touchdown in the third quarter of the Senior Day rout.

"But the way we were going to train, the way we were going to practice, the way we were going to eat, the way some of our schemes were organized was going to change, and for us to have a chance to have success, we needed [the players] to buy into that, and we've had great leadership from our senior class". "They're going to stretch you horizontally in the running game, and stretch you vertically in the passing game".

Clemson quarterback Deshaun Watson says the team learned from last year's run to the national championship game, a 45-40 loss to Alabama.

"We look at him as a receiver, because he's never in the box", Venables said.

"Everybody is pretty excited", Reynolds said. Our guys gutted it out, but we were an exhausted football team at this time a year ago. "Kind of the way I put it to them is, if we do all these things then we at least have a chance".

Four more Virginia Tech players earned an honorable mention: offensive guard Wyatt Teller, defensive end Ken Ekanem, and safeties Chuck Clark and Terrell Edmunds. "Hopefully, we have three games". The ankle was labeled as a 'sprained ankle, however. Stroman, though, did not see any time. "I don't expect anything less Saturday night".
