Cadet Stockmoe given color guard honor

Cadet Sean Stockmoe of Ridgefield, Conn., a freshman majoring in human nutrition, foods and exercise, is a member of the Army ROTC program and is a recipient of the Emerging Leader Scholarship. Stockmoe was among those nominated to receive flags at away football games.

“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 are selected, because of their performance in the last game or during practice, to carry the American flag, the state flag, and the team’s spirit flag as they lead the team onto the field. They carry the flags the length of the field and deliver them to cadets at the south end of the field.

“The cadets performing this honor are also selected based on their performance during their training. The cadets render honor to the flags and then securely carry them off the field. At home games normally three freshman cadets are selected and one or two upper-class cadets travel with the team and receive the flags at away games.”
