Mike Burnop, radio color analyst for Virginia Tech football and basketball, will be the featured speaker at the Roanoke Valley Sports Club meeting on Monday, June 18, at the Salem Civic Center. Meeting activities begin at 5:45 pm with the dinner at 6:00 pm.
Burnop is currently in his 35th year as a radio voice for Hokie football and basketball. He is one of just a few announcers nationwide that provide analysis for both sports.
Prior to becoming the Voice of the Hokies, he was a football player for Virginia Tech from 1969-1972 when he set the football record for receptions in a season by a tight end with 46. However, former Tech standout tight end Bucky Hodges broke Burnop’s record,with 48 receptions in 2016.
Anyone not a member of the Sports Club and is interested in attending the meeting should call Joyce Montgomery at 354-6751, or Maggie Drewry at 353-1103 as soon as possible.
