UVa Coaches Help Dig Out Residents

The Virginia football staff was very busy over the weekend digging out Charlottesville from two feet of snow.

Virginia football was forced to cancel its recruiting weekend because of the snow, but that didn't stop them from getting some work done. 

The region was hit by a major winter storm that left one to two feet in its wake. On Sunday the coaching staff took to the streets of Charlottesville to help people dig out.

According to an article by the Daily Progress -who detailed their adventures here- director of player personnel Justin Anderson contacted a local LDS church member. He in turn sent the staff a list of elderly people and single mothers that would need some help. 

Running backs coach Mark Atuaia, defensive coordinator Nick Howell, defensive line coach Shane Hunter, outside linebackers coach Kelly Poppinga, director of football operations Patrick Hickman and graduate assistant Vic So'oto joined Anderson in their quest to help people dig out their cars and driveways.

This is was not the only snowy adventure of the weekend. The staff also took some time on Saturday to get acquainted with Scott Stadium.
