September 8, 2016
Cadets Sean Moughan, of Fort Mill, South Carolina; Natalie Rosas, of Leesburg, Virginia; and James Stutz, of Chesapeake, Virginia, will receive the flags at this week’s football game against Tennessee.
The Virginia Tech Corps of Cadets and the Virginia Tech football team continue their proud partnership to highlight the colors during the pre-game ceremony at every football game.
Three football players, chosen because of their performance in the last game or at practice, to carry the American flag, the state flag, and the team’s spirit flag as they lead the team onto the field. They deliver them to cadets at the other end of the field.
The cadets, also selected based on their performance during training, render honor to the flags and then carry them off the field. At home games three first-year cadets are selected, and one or two upper-class cadets travel with the team and receive the flags at away games.
Moughan, a junior majoring in history in the College of Liberal Arts and Human Sciences, was chosen for being a good teacher during New Cadet Week. He is the recipient of a corps Emerging Leader Scholarship and in Army ROTC.
Rosas, a junior majoring in meteorology in the College of Natural Resources and Environment, was chosen for inspiring her first-year cadets during their first weeks of training. She is the recipient of a corps Emerging Leader Scholarship and in Air Force ROTC.
Stutz, a junior majoring in meteorology in the College of Natural Resources and Environment, was chosen for his leadership and dedication to training the first-year cadets. He is the recipient of a corps Emerging Leader Scholarship and in Naval ROTC.
