Hokies dismiss DE Hill

Virginia Tech dismissed standout defensive end Trevon Hill from the program for not upholding school standards, the school announced Sunday.

The dismissal comes one day after the Hokies suffered an embarrassing 49-35 loss to Old Dominion.

“After consultation with our coaching staff and administration at Virginia Tech, Trevon Hill has been dismissed from the football team effective immediately for not upholding the high standards that we have for our student-athletes at Virginia Tech,” Virginia Tech coach Justin Fuente said in a statement. “I will always put the interests of Virginia Tech and our team first no matter how difficult those decisions may be.”

Prior to the release of Virginia Tech’s statement, Hill retweeted a tweet from the Virginian-Pilot sports account, which stated “Old Dominion’s 632 total yards were the most given up by Virginia Tech in Bud Foster’s 24 seasons as the Hokies’ defensive coordinator”

Hill, a junior, had a team-best 3.5 sacks this season and 11.5 for his career. He had 1.5 sacks in the loss to previously winless Old Dominion.
