Before we get started, can you grow up already and spare us the juvenile “chicker” stuff, please? There’s no place for that here.
Anyway, there was an interesting mini-story coming out of Blacksburg Tuesday, with Virginia Tech head coach Frank Beamer experiencing a first in his long coaching career.
According to the Washington Post, freshman Lauren Luttrell tried out for the Hokies today as a kicker. And, she did well enough in the tryout that she’s earned an invitation to return to the team next year during spring practice.
“Right now it’s kind of tough to come out there and get a lot of attention. Things are happening so fast right now,” Beamer said. “But I was impressed with her and we’ll bring her back out there in the spring.”
It’s not like Luttrell is a complete kicking neophyte, however; as a senior in high school last year, she kicked 10 extra points and a 31-yard field goal for Spotsylvania.
Hopefully Luttrell will fare as well as Kathy Ireland‘s character in “Necessary Roughness”. And much, much better than what was alleged to have occurred during Katie Hnida‘s time at Colorado in the late nineties.
