 Dax Hollifield, Virginia Tech, Player News


  Virginia Tech's Dax Hollifield looks like a middle linebacker, talks like a middle linebacker, thinks like a middle linebacker and competes like a middle linebacker. Good news for him, then: He's now actually a middle linebacker. "I've been waiting for this opportunity for the past three seasons," Hollifield said. "I'm finally at the position I was recruited to play." Now, don't misunderstand. Happiness hasn't been a problem for this guy in the past. As long as you slap a jersey and a helmet on him and let him run around, Hollifield is going to be happy. That would apply if he were fielding punts, serving as a long snapper or slugging it out on the offensive line.

But you watch the way he gets in that crouch and scans the opposing backfield, so eager to work downhill, and it's obvious that middle linebacker (or, as the Hokies call it, the "Mike" position) is where he belongs. He's spent most of the past three seasons playing outside linebacker ("Will") while Rayshard Ashby held down the Mike spot. "They're pretty similar positions, but the biggest difference is the Will linebacker position, they're going to be more in space," said Tech linebackers coach Jack Tyler, who started at the Mike spot during his own playing days in Blacksburg. "Dax's skill set is more tailored toward being in the box and having it be more of a phone booth. "I'm not saying he's not athletic enough to go play in space. Obviously he was; he did it the last couple years. But his skill set is better for in-the-box type of plays." - Roanoke Times

  Dax Hollifield is likely the next man up in the middle of Tech's defense. He has 182 career tackles (70 solo) with 14.5 for a loss, 5.5 sacks, two forced fumbles and three interceptions. He's a proven playmaker and now gets the chance to play the position he was recruited at. That opens up the full-time job on the outside for Alan Tisdale, who has come off the bench for much of his career. - Roanoke Times

  Dax Hollifield sees Virginia Tech's linebackers playing a key role in ushering the Justin Hamilton-era when the team finally sees the field. The Hokies have plenty of experience on defense, with eight returning starters, but no unit is more battle-tested than the linebackers. Rayshard Ashby and Hollifield started all 13 games together last season and have 43 combined starts over the last two years. Backup outside linebacker Alan Tisdale will also have a bigger role this season. "It's going to be a lot of fun this year, just seeing how we interchange and how we play different roles this year and how we get after it this season," Hollifield said. "I expect a lot out of all three of us." Hollifield expects to play more middle linebacker this season - his more natural position - which will help all three linebackers get an equal number of reps. - Roanoke Times
