2006 Season The rising redshirt-senior :00 from Chesapeake played in all 14 games
last season and led the Hokies in
rushing with 992 yards.


In 2006, Ore rushed for over
11-hundred yards and 16 TDs on the way
to first-team All-ACC honors.


Ore also showed up for summer
practice out of shape last year, didn't
start the Orange Bowl and later
testified as the key witness in a
federal drug case in January.


Several coaches told us he just
made things harder than they had to be.
