In every way they reflect the ideals of a Virginia student-athlete. There has been an edge to practice and the workouts since we began a month ago and the urgency of our preparation reflects the tone that Rob, Bobby and Scott have exhibited on a daily basis. We are also blessed to have other outstanding leaders in the program and we will benefit from everyone's example. ”
