OQ=News 7 Sports. << When you consider that this
(END SOT) year's trip to the Chik-Fil-A Bowl will


be Virginia Tech's 14th straight
post-season appearance, the long-term
members of the Hokie Coaching staff
have got down pat dealing with
Christmas away from home

(STINEY BITE:)

If you happen to see a sleigh
flying high over Blacksburg early don't
be to suprised.

(STINEY BITE:)

Christmas Day is when the team
arrives in Atlanta and the players

better not arrive empy handed.

(BUD BITE:)

(PLAYER BITES:)

The Gift that both Players and
Coaches won is a Bowl Game Win over
Georgia. In Blacksburg Grant Kittelson
