The Tech Lunch Pail covers Virginia Tech athletics, but we are not associated with Virginia Tech athletics. The Tech Lunch Pail is committed to providing great coverage of all Virginia Tech sports. The Tech Lunch Pail also covers recruiting and Virginia Tech athletic alumni.


Editor: Tim Thomas

Since February 2015, I have been the editor and owner of The Tech Lunch Pail. Before then, I was the editor of FanSided’s Fighting Gobbler for 13 months while also being a writer for Lombardi Ave, a Green Bay Packers site on the FanSided Sports Network.

I am a 2018 graduate of Virginia Tech and was a student season ticket holder for football and men’s basketball during all four of my years in Blacksburg. I am a passionate Virginia Tech fan and sports fan that wants to give you the best possible coverage of VT Sports.

Writer: Bobby Murray

Bobby Murray loves sports. It’s plain and simple. Having been born and raised in NOVA, Nationals pride runs in his blood and his John Wall is second only to the wizards player himself. He once gave up watching television after the Nats lost 5 straight. Hokie pride runs in his veins. He has passions for football, cross country, and NCAA football 14. He enjoys watching Virginia Tech games from the North End Zone with a glacier freeze Gatorade in his hand. He has a savings fund created to eventually rename Worsham field the Bobby. This man of mystery is Bobby Murray, staff writer.

Writer: Dwight Lester
