Hanover's Rogers will walk on at Virginia Tech

Posted: Updated:
MECHANICSVILLE, VA (WWBT) -

Sam Rogers did it all for Hanover - he played quarterback, receiver, running back, and multiple positions on defense.  He even was the holder on extra points. But despite all the productivity, scholarship offers did not come pouring in.

On Signing Day Eve, Rogers made his decision about what he's doing at the next level.  Rogers will be a preferred walk-on at Virginia Tech, which means he do everything that all the rest of the players do, he just won't receive any scholarship money.

The hope for Rogers is that he will impress coaches enough in practice that he will earn a scholarship down the line.

Rogers was the leader of a Hawk team that won three straight Region championships.

This past season, the 5'11" 210 pounder rushed for 1,178 yards and 18 touchdowns and threw for 1,006 yards and six touchdowns. He also caught five passes for 90 yards.

Rogers chose Tech over being a preferred walk-on at UVA, and taking a scholarship from Bucknell of the FCS.
