Sean Glennon will be Virginia Tech's
starting quarterback this year while sophomore Tyrod Taylor
Hokies coach Frank Beamer said Tuesday that Cory Holt will begin
the season as the nominal backup, but Taylor would be likely to
play if Glennon couldn't.
Glennon began last season as the Hokies' starter, but was
replaced by Taylor after a slow start. Glennon got a second chance
midway through the season when Taylor was injured, and reclaimed
the job by playing well.
The senior was chosen most valuable player in the Hokies'
victory over Boston College in the Atlantic Coast Conference
No. 17 Virginia Tech opens its season Saturday against East
Carolina in Charlotte, N.C.
