With Virginia Tech’s first spring practices under head coach Brent Pry set to begin this week, plenty of excitement and positive momentum surround the next chapter of Hokies Football.
New season tickets are still available for as little as $350 with flexible payment plan options.
From the team’s open practice today, March 19, to 100 days until kickoff in late May and everything in between, here are some of the key dates during Tech’s offseason.
Today, Saturday, March 19 | Open Practice
Season-ticket holders and fans are invited to attend Tech’s practice in Lane Stadium today. Gates open at 11:30 a.m. and admission is free.
Tuesday, March 22 | Pro Day
Earlier this month, six former Hokies were invited to the NFL Combine in Indianapolis to showcase their talents in front of NFL personnel executives and coaches. After turning in some impressive performances, including an astounding 4.36-second 40-yard dash from Amare Barno, those six players will be joined by additional Tech alums for the Hokies’ Pro Day in Blacksburg starting at 2 p.m.
Be sure to follow Tech Football on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram for full coverage.
Thursday, March 31 | Hokie Scholarship Fund Giving Deadline
The Hokie Club’s annual Hokie Scholarship Fund benefits giving deadline falls on Thursday, March 31, this year. All gifts must be received by that date to solidify membership level and priority point ranking ahead of the Lane Stadium seat improvement process for football season ticket holders later this spring.
Saturday, April 16 | Spring Game
After paying respect to the 32 Hokies who lost their lives on that fateful day in 2007, the Hokies will hold their annual spring game in Lane Stadium at 4 p.m., presented by PMSi. The spring game will be part of Tech’s first-ever “Hokie Hi: Weekend at Home” event, taking place from April 14-16 and offering Hokie Nation the chance to cheer on a number of Tech sports, including softball, baseball, and men’s tennis.
Registration is also now open for Virginia Tech’s annual 3.2-mile Run in Remembrance, which will take place that Saturday, April 16. The event will begin with a moment of silence at 9:43 a.m. to honor and remember the vibrant lives of the 32 students and faculty who were tragically killed in 2007. The event’s 3.2-mile loop around the Blacksburg campus begins and ends on the Virginia Tech Drillfield near the April 16 Memorial and passes by landmarks such as the Duck Pond, the Grove, and the Virginia Tech Pylons, and will take runners and walkers through Lane Stadium.

The 2022 NFL Draft will take place in Las Vegas with a few Hokies expecting to hear their names called as they take the next step in their football journey. The first round begins at 8 p.m. on NFL Network, ABC, and ESPN.
Last April, Tech had four players selected in the NFL Draft: cornerback Caleb Farley (Titans, No. 22 overall), tackle Christian Darrisaw (Vikings, No. 23), safety Divine Deablo (Raiders, No. 80), and running back Khalil Herbert (Bears, No. 217).
