3 Virginia Tech Hokies earn ACC Player of the Week honors

The Virginia Tech Hokies are on a two-game winning streak after routing North Carolina 59-7 in dominant fashion. As a result, three Hokies were named ACC Players of the Week for their roles in the lopsided victory.

Defensive lineman Ricky Walker, defensive back Reggie Floyd (co-selection) and specialist Greg Stroman each earned the honors for Week 8.

Walker had four tackles, 1.5 sacks and a 12-yard touchdown on a fumble recovery. Floyd finished with seven tackles (one tackle for a loss) along with a 69-yard interception return for a touchdown. Stroman helped set the tone by returning a punt 91 yards for a touchdown in the first quarter.
