12/26/16 - 2016 ALL-ACC FOOTBALL SECOND TEAM (COACHES): WR Isaiah Ford, Jr., Virginia Tech (27),...Ford, a junior from Jacksonville, Florida, makes it three straight years on the ACSMA list - first team last year and honorable mention in 2014. He leads the Hokies in receptions (69), receiving yards (949) and is tied in receiving touchdowns (7). Ford is poised to become the school record holder in career yards receiving, just 63 yards shy, while he already holds the career receptions and touchdowns record. - Virginia Tech Football
10/27/16 - No. 25 Virginia Tech prevails with record 6 field goals...Junior Joey Slye tied an ACC and Virginia Tech record by kicking six field goals and Isaiah Ford provided the winning margin with a 16-yard touchdown catch in the fourth quarter as the No. 25 Hokies downed Pittsburgh 39-36 on Thursday night at Heinz Field. Virginia Tech quarterback Jerod Evans threw for a career-high 406 yards, going 24 of 40 with two scoring passes, as the Hokies (6-2, 4-1) pulled even with North Carolina (6-2, 4-1) atop the ACC Coastal Division. Bucky Hodges had a career-high 145 yards receiving and Ford recorded 143 for Virginia Tech. James Conner ran for 141 yards and three touchdowns for Pitt (5-3, 2-2), increasing his career total of 100-yard rushing games to 14. Quarterback Nate Peterman was 13 of 22 for 267 yards and a touchdown with an interception. The Panthers won six of the teams' previous seven meetings and were 4-0 at Heinz Field against the Hokies. - The Sports Xchange
12/28/15 - Frank Beamer built a powerhouse at Virginia Tech over nearly three decades thanks to a ferocious defense and terrific special teams. In an unexpected twist, his final game with the Hokies was all about offense. But the 69-year-old coach wasn't complaining, only laughing and smiling in the aftermath of Virginia Tech's 55-52 victory over Tulsa in the Independence Bowl on Saturday night. "It was different," Beamer said. "But all I know is we won the football game." Michael Brewer threw for 344 yards, Isaiah Ford had 227 yards receiving and Virginia Tech held off a Tulsa rally in the final minutes to send Beamer out a winner.
The coach announced in November he would retire following the season and the team won three of its last four regular season games to become bowl eligible. He finished with a 238-121-2 record at Virginia Tech over 29 seasons. Virginia Tech (7-6) was playing in a bowl for the 23rd straight season. The first game of that streak also was in the Independence Bowl in 1993, when the Hokies beat Indiana 45-20. "The first time I came to Shreveport I left here a happy guy," Beamer said. "The last time I come to Shreveport I'll leave here a happy guy." "I may come back to Shreveport just for the hell of it." - AP Sports
12/01/15 - 2015 ATLANTIC COAST CONFERENCE FIRST TEAM (MEDIA): WR Isaiah Ford, So., Virginia Tech, 124/150 Votes...Ford, who was an honorable mention selection as a wide receiver last season, led the ACC in both receiving yards (937) and receiving touchdowns (10) this season. The sophomore out of Jacksonville, Florida, broke two single-season school records during the year, including the touchdown receptions mark and the overall receptions mark (63). He is just 26 receiving yards shy of eclipsing that school record as well. He has caught at least two passes in every game of his career (25) and is two games shy of tying the school record for consecutive games with at least one reception. - Virginia Tech Football
