played at G.W. Danville.

That was until Wednesday when the
former Eagle took part in Spring
Football at Virginia Tech sporting the
familiar number 20 but this time in
Maroon.

(LEWIS BITE:)

Lewis had been playing baseball
in the Cincinnati Reds organization but
couldn't resist the pull of the
football field.

(LEWIS BITE:)

Lewis is technically a freshman

but brings a maturity to the position
of running back that has almost no
experienced players in Spring Camp.

(BEAMER BITE:)

Tech Spring Football concludes
with the Spring Game on April 15th at
Lane Stadium. In Blacksburg Grant

GRAPHIC=MATT HAGAN Many of you may know Matt Hagan


from his days as a student at Auburn
high school and Radford University.

But since the start of the year
the 23 year old is making quite a name
for himself on the pro drag racing
circuits. After making it all the way
to the quarterfinals in his first ever
NHRA Pro Modified Drag Race in
Gainesville, Florida last week, Hagan
is now on his way to San Antonio Texas
for a big IHRA event this weekend.

ENG#=3 VO-NAT



VO-NAT After this weekend he will stay


in Texas and take part in the NHRA
O'Reilly Spring Nationals in Houston.

Hagan was one of just a handful of
drivers invited to the legendary Gator
Nationals - and his performance last
weekend has definitely gotten the
attention of even the sports' elite
drivers. Hagan also plans to make
several runs this summer at the Motor
Mile Dragway in Radford.
