Faith, family and football

Highland Springs, Va. Tech star has grown on, off the field

Derrick “Skip” Hopkins spent the past four years as a defensive tackle for the Virginia Tech Hokies, concluding his career during the team’s Sun Bowl loss Dec. 31 to UCLA, but football has not been his only achievement.

His football career began at age five when he played offense and defense for the Glen Lea Lions in Henrico. He continued to play defensive tackle and offensive guard while at Fairfield Middle School and focused his attention on defensive tackle at Highland Springs High School.
