MATT LINCOLN IN ORLANDO: Hopkins brothers prepare for final game together

ORLANDO, FL (WWBT) -

Highland Springs products Antoine and Derrick Hopkins have played together on Virginia Tech's defensive line for the last three seasons, but following Friday's game, that dynamic duo will be trimmed down to one.

Antoine is preparing for his final college football game, which will be Friday's Russell Athletic Bowl.  He'll be looking to win his second bowl game, while younger brother Derrick will be going for his first postseason victory.

The elder Hopkins says he will pursue the NFL, but has a back-up plan, as he has already started his own computer business.

Click on the above video to view Matt Lincoln's report from Orlando on the Hopkins brothers and their preparations for their final game together.
