 Draft Scout College Football Player News

  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
