Frank Beamer established a dynastic program in his 29 seasons at his alma mater. Beamer’s 1999 Hokies secured the program’s first-ever perfect regular season and advanced to the BCS National Championship at the Sugar Bowl — Beamer was named National Coach of the Year thereafter. Virginia Tech became one of six schools in college football history to be invited to bowl games in 20 straight seasons (1993-2015) and posted five top-10 finishes under Beamer. “Beamerball” was the nickname given to Virginia Tech’s ability to score on all three fronts, offense, defense and special teams during the Beamer dynasty. To honor his contributions to the Virginia Tech football program, Beamer’s No. 25 jersey that he wore as a Hokie cornerback from 1966-68 was officially retired in 2002 and the street that lines Lane Stadium was renamed “Beamer Way” in 2015.
