Jacob Hodges is in his seventh season with the UVa football program and his second as a graduate assistant. He assists with the defense, primarily with the linebackers. Hodges is a three-year letterwinner for the Cavaliers after serving as the UVa holder from 2010-12. He joined the team in 2010 after spending his first two seasons on Grounds as a student manager for the 2008 and 2009 UVa football teams.
Between 2010 and 2012 Hodges appeared in 37 games and was the holder on every field goal and PAT attempt. He completed his only career collegiate pass on a fake field goal in 2010 against Maryland. Terrence Fells-Danzer took the pass 16 yards for a touchdown. Hodges also made three career rushes for 29 yards on fake field goal attempts. His career-long of 20 yards came on a Thursday night ESPN game at Miami in 2011.
Hodges graduated from Virginia in 2012 with a bachelor degree in history. The Stafford, Va., native is currently working on a masters degree in teaching from the Curry School.
