After saluting the military with a special camouflage helmet, the Virginia Tech Hokies are ready to rock out for Thursday night’s game against Georgia Tech.

The “Hokie Stone” design is just that – Virginia Tech players will look like they have helmets made of rocks. Hokie Stone is a name coined for a type of rock mined near the Blacksburg campus and used on the facades of many buildings at the school.
