Vick one of five selected for Virginia Tech Sports Hall of Fame
BLACKSBURG, Va. (WSET) - Michael Vick is one of five former Hokies who'll be inducted into the Virginia Tech Sports Hall of Fame this September.
Vick, as a redshirt freshman, helped lead the Hokies to a perfect 11-and-0 regular season in 1999 and the national championship game against Florida State. He later was the number one overall pick in the 2001 NFL Draft, selected by the Atlanta Falcons, and played 13 seasons in the NFL.
Joining Vick in this year's Hall of Fame class will be basketball's Zabian Dowdell, baseball's Tim Buheller, softball's Megan Evans and football's Ben Taylor.
Zabian Dowdell was an explosive point guard and Virginia Tech's first first-team All-ACC selection who scored 1,785 points in his career.
Tim Buheller, a standout baseball player in the mid-1980s, still holds several school records.
Megan Evans, a softball catcher, still ranks as the program’s all-time leading home run hitter.
And Ben Taylor, a two-time All-American linebacker, recorded more than 100 tackles in each of his final two seasons.
