 Braxton Burmeister, Virginia Tech, Player News


  Braxton Burmeister threw for 215 yards and a career-high three touchdowns to lift Virginia Tech to a 48-17 victory over Duke on Saturday. The Hokies (5-5, 3-3 Atlantic Coast Conference) entered the game having lost four of their previous five games, including heartbreakers to Notre Dame (32-29) and Syracuse (41-36) in the waning moments. But Virginia Tech grabbed a 14-0 lead against Duke and never trailed in setting season highs in points and scoring margin. "Just proud of our kids - their perseverance through tough, adverse times," Virginia Tech coach Justin Fuente said. "They continue to amaze all of us in this building that see them every single day with their resilient nature and their care for each other." Added Fuente, "It's a lot of fun to watch. Inspiring, quite honestly, to the coaches and everyone around them. Just have a lot of fun being around them. It's a great group of kids." Raheem Blackshear added 117 yards rushing and scored touchdowns both rushing and receiving for the Hokies, who amassed more than 500 yards of offense (573) for the first time in 43 games. Virginia Tech's 374 first-half yards were more than it had accumulated in six of nine previous games this season.

Of the 573 yards, 297 came on the ground and 276 through the air, as the Hokies displayed their most balanced attack this season. Three players - Blackshear, Keshawn King (90), and Burmeister (71) - finished with more than 70 yards rushing. "It's definitely exciting because it keeps the defense guessing," Virginia Tech receiver Tayvion Robinson said. Burmeister, who missed nearly all of the Hokies' 17-3 loss at Boston College because of an injury, returned and completed touchdown passes of 47 yards to King, 30 yards to Kaleb Smith, and 13 yards to Blackshear. Backup quarterback Jordan Moore led Duke (3-7, 0-6), which lost its sixth consecutive game, with 113 rushing yards and a touchdown. - Virginia Tech/AP College Football

  Braxton Burmeister threw for 212 yards and a touchdown to lead Virginia Tech to a 21-10 victory over Richmond on Saturday. Tayvion Robinson added a 60-yard punt return for a score for the Hokies (3-1), who struggled against a Richmond team that played nearly the entire game without starting quarterback Joe Mancuso (injured hand). Burmeister threw a 10-yard touchdown pass to Tre Turner on the opening possession of the game to cap a 65-yard drive - the Hokies' best of the game. An Aaron Banks interception led to Richmond's only touchdown, with Savon Smith scoring on a 16-yard run to tie the game in the second quarter. Robinson's touchdown and a 1-yard score by backup quarterback Connor Blumrick were enough for Virginia Tech to register the win. Turner caught six passes for 102 yards for the Hokies, who amassed just 318 yards. Beau English II completed 15 of 23 for just 77 yards to lead Richmond, which finished with only 237 yards. - Virginia Tech/AP College Football

  Virginia Tech coach Justin Fuente has the utmost confidence in Braxton Burmeister. That's been his message this summer, and one he returned to Wednesday at the team's media day when he marveled at the quarterback's "elite" athleticism. "He looks like the people I watch on television at the Olympics," Fuente said. "He's ripped to shreds, he's got veins in his abs, he jumps out of the gym, he's strong ... he can do everything an elite athlete can do." Burmeister opened camp Thursday as Tech's QB1, a position he's had throughout the entire offseason. It marks the first time since 2014 that Fuente is opening fall camp without a competition for the starting job.

Fuente was patrolling the sidelines for Memphis in 2014 and his quarterback at the time was Paxton Lynch. Lynch was only the second freshman quarterback in program history to throw for more than 2,000 yards after winning the job. There were some growing pains - the 2013 team went 3-9 while averaging 16.5 points per game - but Lynch was the unquestioned starter going forward, which paid dividends. - Roanoke Times

  Burmeister went into camp as the de facto first-team quarterback with Hendon Hooker and Quincy Patterson transferring last fall, but there's a strong likelihood he would have been the top guy if they had stayed. Tech's coaching staff loves Burmeister's skill set, and are confident coming out of spring camp that the offense can flourish this fall with him at the helm. That confidence is part of the reason why the Hokies didn't seek out an additional quarterback with experience from the transfer portal. The addition of former Texas A&M quarterback Connor Blumrick was seen as a way to shore up the team's depth at the position behind Burmeister.

Burmeister got the majority of the first-team reps, and established himself as a leader on the offensive side of the ball. His teammates embraced Burmeister's efforts, and appreciated the effort he put in particularly during winter workouts when he would gather the skill players to throw in the indoor practice facility. "He's definitely taking that next step that we look for and the coaches look for," Tech wide receiver Tayvion Robinson said. "He's taken ownership leading us, having us throw a couple times whenever we can and building a chemistry with him, and that's the most important thing now going into the spring is just getting as comfortable as possible and getting him as comfortable as possible." - Roanoke Times

  Virginia Tech quarterback Braxton Burmeister wants to make up for lost time this spring. He came down with the coronavirus during fall camp as he was competing for the starting job. In October, he got hurt in practice when an offensive lineman stepped on his foot. He suffered three broken toes and was limited in practice until Tech's bye week in late November. "I really only had two real weeks of practice in a full year," Burmeister said, on Monday. Burmeister took a back seat to Hendon Hooker during that stretch, but that time helped him get a full grasp on the offense.

"Just understanding what we're trying to do on every play and really just knowing exactly what the line's doing, exactly what the running backs are doing, exactly what all the receivers are doing and so it's just knowing it in and out like the back of my hand," Burmeister said. That helped him close the season out on a high note. He threw for 339 yards while completing 73.5% of his passes and averaging just shy of 10 yards per attempt. Tech put up 464 total yards in a 33-15 win over Virginia in the season-finale, the most productive game for the offense in six weeks. - Roanoke Times

  Virginia Tech coach Justin Fuente's philosophy with his quarterbacks going into spring camp for much of his tenure has been to let them "put the ball down and go compete." This year might be a little different. Braxton Burmeister is the lone quarterback on the roster with any significant experience and will open spring camp in March with a sizable advantage over the rest of the room including Connor Blumrick, the Texas A&M quarterback transfer the Hokies added to the roster in January. Blumrick has played in 18 games, but his lone pass attempt came in 2018.

The focus for Burmeister will be building on the momentum he established at the end of the season, helping Tech win 33-15 over Virginia to bring the Commonwealth Cup back to Blacksburg. Burmeister was 15 of 22 (68.2%) for 212 yards with a touchdown in the win and also ran for 36 yards. He threw for 687 total passing yards (57.1%) in four starts with two touchdowns and one interception. He had 182 rushing yards (4.0 ypc) with a pair of touchdowns. - Roanoke Times

  Virginia Tech quarterback Braxton Burmeister has experience displacing a returning starter. He got one step closer to doing it again on Wednesday when coach Justin Fuente announced Burmeister and Hendon Hooker will both play in the opener against Virginia on Sept. 19 (barring any COVID-19-related developments). Hooker will open the game at quarterback, but Fuente said Burmeister will get a chance to prove what he can do. Burmeister's former coaches and teammates wouldn't be surprised if he ends up as Tech's full-time starter in the coming weeks. Those close to the quarterback attribute his rise through the ranks to a relentless work ethic and competitiveness. He was looking up the depth chart at an experienced senior starter going into his freshman year at La Jolla Country Day. The team's then coach Jeff Hutzler approached the competition the same way Fuente does. "We were going to let the best player win the job," Hutzler said.

Hutzler said Burmeister had a "deadly" combination of size and speed, and could make any throw the coaching staff asked of him. The quarterback matched those natural abilities with a dedication to his craft that earned him the job. "In summer camp before even playing a game, he was asking me about how to rally the team," Hutzler said. "He's in my office having conversations about how to show appreciation to the offensive line. He's asking those kind of questions, which I think goes to show talent-aside what kind of young man he is." - Roanoke Times

  Virginia Tech quarterback Braxton Burmeister had to hit pause last fall and now he's had to do it again. The Oregon transfer spent a couple weeks in August competing for the starting job before moving over to the scout team. He was able to get real practice reps again during prep for the Belk Bowl, but he wasn't allowed to travel with the team for the final week of practice in Charlotte. His role on the scout team didn't afford him many opportunities to showcase all of his teammates, but Tech coaches and players raved about his athleticism, which was put to good use leading up to the Virginia game when Burmeister was tasked with simulating Bryce Perkins.

"Braxton when we were uncertain about his eligibility he was in there taking reps headed into the season and was effective," Fuente said last week. "He was in the process of doing a really good job then we kind of got word about how that appeal was going to turn out and he had to migrate towards the scout team stuff and did a great job with the scout team all season long. In bowl prep, we had a chance to put him back in there to run our stuff and he did a good job." Fuente was going to let Tech's quarterbacks compete for the starting job this spring, but those plans are on hold with the COVID-19 outbreak forcing the program to cancel the entirety of spring camp. - Roanoke Times
