Frank Beamer (distributive education '69), head football coach at Tech, directed his players through an undefeated season in 1999 and on to the national championship playoff in the Sugar Bowl, where the Hokies lost to Florida State. Throughout his career, Beamer has earned nine Coach of the Year Awards and the 2004 Humanitarian Award, and won three Big East Conference championships and one ACC championship.

Bruce Smith (general arts and sciences '85 (did not graduate)) played as a defensive end in the NFL for 19 seasons, starting his pro career when the Buffalo Bills took him as the No. 1 overall draft pick in 1985. He was with the Bills for 14 seasons, during which he played in four Super Bowls and was elected to the Pro Bowl every year from 1988 to 1999, save for 1992. After the 1999 season, Smith played with the Washington Redskins until his retirement in 2004. Smith, whose Virginia Tech jersey number-78-has been retired, was voted to the College Football Hall of Fame in 2006.

Michael Vick (sociology '03 (did not graduate))was Virginia Tech's star quarterback from 1999-2000. During his freshman year, Vick led Tech to its first undefeated season since 1918, culminating with the Hokies' first-ever national championship game against Florida State University. That season also netted Vick an ESPY Award as the nation's top college player and the first-ever Archie Griffin Award as college football's most valuable player. After his third year at Tech, Vick entered the 2001 NFL draft and was the No. 1 pick, selected by the Atlanta Falcons, making him the first-ever African-American quarterback to be taken first. As of the 2006-07 season, Vick still plays for the Atlanta Falcons and ranks first in career rushing yards among active quarterbacks and third-behind Randall Cunningham and Steve Young-in all-time rushing yards by a quarterback.
