Last weekend, Blacksburg (Va.) 2018 athlete Cole Beck saw his efforts from the season pay off. He and his Bruins teammates were state champions, following a win over Staunton River (Va.) in the VHSL Class 3A state championship.
Now, Beck hopes his efforts pay off towards his future endeavors. Beck has an early offer in, from Delaware State, but he's hoping to get more going. Virginia Tech, Virginia, Richmond and James Madison have also reached out, giving him a feel for where he stands overall.
Beck has also been multiple times to Hokies games, as he lives just minutes from Virginia Tech's campus. Each trip has give him the chance to see the action live, but also get a feel for the coaching staff, what they like about him and what he still needs to do.
"It's just keeping in touch, Beck said. "They've kept in touch and wished me luck in games, just stuff like that."
Beck also visited Richmond and James Madison this fall.
