Coaching Football's "Little Things"

Developing a Consistently Successful Football Program


Posted by admin April - 9 - 2010 - Friday

It’s Spring Break week and we went to visit family in Blacksburg.  As has always been the case, coach Beamer allowed me on the practice field at Va. Tech Wednesday afternoon to observe the Hokies working out.  It’s always a treat to see those guys up close as they practice.

I wandered over to watch the running backs go through their individual drills and, to my surprise, there was Kenny Lewis, Jr. back in his old familiar #20 jersey— going full speed!!  This is the guy whose career was “over” after tearing his achilles tendon and then having 4 surgeries to fix it!  He was never going to play again!  But… there he was.

I just read a blog report from the writer who covers VT football for The Virginian Pilot, our local paper, and really enjoyed the interview he did with Kenny yesterday.  If you want to be encouraged… if you want to see what faith can do… if you want to read about a true miracle of God… then you need to read Kyle Tucker’s blog about Kenny Lewis, Jr!  Check it out!
