With 46 days left until Virginia Tech takes the field against Appalachian State, we turn our attention to one of the numberless Hokies on the roster, Mr. Fuller Hoepner. For most Tech fans, Hoepner is an unknown entity at this point. However, to most around the program, Hoepner is a talented athlete that could eventually push some of the scholarship players for playing time down the road. He’s a converted quarterback who will most likely spend his entire career at tight end here at Virginia Tech.

Height: 6’2”
Weight: 227 lbs
Position: Tight End
Year: R-Freshman
High School: Cosby High School

How Did He Get Here

Hoepner received interest from numerous teams but the Hokies offered the best shot at playing time. He chose Virginia Tech over interest from Penn State, UVA, and others.

2010 Season


2011 Prospectus

The Hokies still have plenty of question marks at tight end as we enter this 2011 season but there are enough bodies there for somebody to emerge behind starter Chris Drager. With some freshmen entering the fold this summer and some scholarship players above them, it will be tough for a walk-on like Hoepner to earn any playing time this fall. At best he could see some time on special teams but odds are, Hoepner will probably have to spend another year on the scout team before giving it another go next spring. With some more weight and a better grasp of the offense, the former Cosby star could be a player to watch in 2012. He’s a good athlete, just needs to learn the tight end position and bulk up a little more.

Completely made up fact

Unlike his great uncle, Erich Hoepner,  Fuller does not believe in Nazism mainly because he does not believe in failure.  Yea, how does that feel Nazis who read and/or follow my blog?  Yea, take that.
