Chamarri Conner has earned his second career opportunity to wear the #25 jersey this week as the Hokies take on Wake Forest.
The junior defensive back is coming off an impressive performance against Boston College with 11 tackles including 0.5 for loss along with a major forced fumble plus 1 pass breakup, and 1 QB hurry in the 40-14 victory. His big game also earned him our Defensive Hokie of the Game honors.
In a season where the Hokies secondary have not been healthy at all times, Conner has appeared in every game so far this season and has continued to be a main defensive playmaker for Tech.
On the season, Conner leads the Hokies 29 tackles including 1.5 for loss plus 1 forced fumble, 1 pass breakup, and 1 QB hurry.
In the young season, Conner becomes the second defensive back for the Hokies to claim the honor of wearing the #25 jersey after J.R. Walker wore the number in the season opening matchup against N.C. State.
