Coaches and players from the Orange-Bowl-bound Virginia Tech Hokies were in Henrico Dec. 7 as the annual Bill Dudley Award ceremony was held at the Hilton Richmond Hotel and Spa at Short Pump. Virginia Tech quarterback Tyrod Taylor (pictured, second from right, next to VT Head Coach Frank Beamer) was named the winner of the Bill Dudley Award, which recognizes the best player in Division I football in the state. The Dudley Award is named in honor of the late William "Bullet Bill" Dudley, a star player at the University of Virginia and a member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
Bridgewater College wide receiver Tyler Beiler (pictured next to Bridgewater Head Coach Michael Clark on the left) received the Willie Lanier Award, given to the player judged best among Division II, III and NAIA competitors in the state. The Lanier Award is named for Willie Lanier, a Richmond native and resident who played at Maggie Walker High School and is also a member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
