Last year, Justin Fuente decided to honor Frank Beamer by awarding Beamer's #25 jersey to the special teams player of the week. The #25 jersey quickly became a cherished tradition for both fans and players, and is returning this fall.
Today, Justin Fuente announced the first recipient of the #25 jersey.
Senior linebacker Anthony Shegog will wear the #25 jersey against West Virginia. Shegog will be the first Hokie to wear the #25 jersey twice as Shegog wore #25 against Miami
last season. Of note, the Hokies have worn all-maroon jerseys
both times Shegog has worn the #25 jersey.
Anthony Shegog ended last season with an impressive Belk Bowl performance in which he had 6 tackles, a sack, an interception, and a forced fumble. Shegog's great game led to him being named to the 2016 AP All-Bowl Team
and received our Defensive Hokie of the Game
Shegog is the Hokies' top backup linebacker who will likely be used in some sub-packages as he was last year. Shegog will also provide lots of experience on special teams this year and is likely to be used on most of the Hokies' special teams units.
Congrats to Anthony Shegog on being chosen to wear the #25 jersey against West Virginia.
