On Wednesday Virginia Tech head coach Frank Beamer announced that kicker Cody Journell had been dismissed from the team. According to Beamer, Journell violated team policies.
Journell had been flirting with trouble for quite some time. He had been suspended from the team two times previously, once for breaking and entering.
Adding insult to injury for the Hokies, the redshirt senior is featured on Saturday’s Senior Day tickets. While Journell won’t be present for the game, he has forever been immortalized on the tickets of thousands of Hokies.
For his career the Ripplemead, Virginia native hit 44-of-58 field goals and 101-of-106 extra points.
