Former New Hanover standout sidelined at Virginia Tech

Story body

Nick Becton, listed as Virginia Tech's starting left tackle on the preseason depth chart, will be
sidelined at least two weeks by a right toe injury. The school says the 6-foot-6, 311-pound redshirt sophomore has "turf toe" - essentially a sprained toe on his right foot. He will wear a boot to protect the injured toe.
Becton, a former standout at New Hanover High School emerged during spring practice as
the favorite to replace the departed Ed Wang in the critical spot on the offensive line.
The Hokies open the season against Boise State on Sept. 6 in Landover, Md., in what is expected to be a matchup of top 10 teams.
