Position Preview: Defensive Line – VT


Teerlinck and Price developed a solid rapport in the spring, and it was evident that their players enjoy working with them. While Barno will deservedly get plenty of preseason hype, Tech needs solid work from the interior quartet of Kendricks, Pollard, Williams and Fuga. After missing the early portion of 2020, a healthy and inspired Garbutt could provide a nice bookend to Barno at defensive end. Unquestionably, the Hokies will need other players to step and take quality snaps throughout the year. Jaylen Griffin, Maxx Philpott and Eli Adams all saw duty a year ago and could help keep Tech’s frontline players fresh.
