Virginians in the Pro Bowl
The NFL announced its Pro Bowl selections yesterday and the Commonwealth of Virginia was well represented. Three former Virginia Tech Hokies were named to the Pro Bowl. Michael Vick and D'Angelo Hall will represent the Atlanta Falcons for the NFC, while Cincinnati Bengals kicker Shayne Graham will play for the AFC.
In addition, Vikings safety Darren Sharper, who played at William and Mary, and Texans kick returner Jerome Mathis, who played at Hampton University, were also selected.
Finally a couple of guys from Roanoke, Virginia, the Buccaneers' Ronde Barber and the Giants' Tiki Barber, were also named to the Pro Bowl. I can't seem to remember what college they played at but it's probably not important. The former Cave Spring High School standouts will be making the trip to Hawaii together for the second year in a row.
