Altavista's Thornhill eager for final season

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (WSET) - Hard to believe this coming football season will be Juan Thornhill's LAST at UVa.

And with defensive leaders like Micah Kiser and Quin Blanding now graduated, the Cavs will be counting a lot on the former Altavista Colonel.

Juan Thornhill, VIRGINIA SENIOR STRONG SAFETY (ALTAVISTA), said "It's just, it's a long process. I'm ready to get to the fall and start playing football, like more working out. And it's the last run so I'm really excited about it."

Bronco Mendenhall, THIRD-YEAR VIRGINIA HEAD COACH, said "So he's currently playing the position that Quin played and those are big shoes to fill, not only in leadership but intellect."
