Jalen Holston earns Beamer’s No. 25 jersey for Saturday’s game at Pitt
It will mark the first time that the Stockbridge, Georgia native has earned this honor.
Holston (5-11, 216), recorded his first career two TD game against then-No. 9 Miami last week. He totaled four rushes for 36 yards, which included scores of eight yards and one yard.
On the season, Holston owns 11 carries for 102 yards and two receptions out of the backfield.
The redshirt junior also plays on Tech’s special teams units, with two kick returns on the season.
At the beginning of the 2016 season, Fuente announced that a special teams player of the week would be selected to wear the No. 25 as a tribute to Coach Beamer and his legacy of special teams excellence he established for the Hokies.
