On Monday evening, Virginia Tech Hokies Head Coach Justin Fuente spoke on this week’s edition of Tech Talk Live, discussing the most pertinent topics related to the football program. Over the course of an hour, Coach Fuente discussed a multitude of topics, including the status of listed No. 1 quarterback Hendon Hooker.
As a redshirt sophomore, Hooker took over the starting quarterback role against Miami in 2019. He would go on to throw for 1,555 yards with 13 touchdowns to only 2 interceptions. He completed 61.1% of his passes. As an added running threat, Hooker rushed 123 times for 356 yards and 5 touchdowns, bringing his total touchdowns to 18 in 8 starts last season.
Prior to the start of the 2020 season, Hooker was labeled as the starter. Despite the designation, Hooker has yet to play a single snap this season
