Virginia Tech football: 55 days til kickoff as we look back at Darryl Tapp

Today is July 7, 2019, which means we are officially just 55 days away from the Virginia Tech Hokies opening the college football season at Boston College. Yesterday, we profiled one of the best players in Virginia Tech history: Corey Moore.

For No. 55, we take a look back at another outstanding defensive end in Darryl Tapp. Tapp arrived in Blacksburg in 2002 as a three-star defensive end out of Deep Creek High in Chesapeake. He was friends and teammates with another former Hokie, DeAngelo Hall, from grade school through their time in Blacksburg.

Tapp would see the field as a true freshman in 2002.
