The Virginia Tech Sports Hall of Fame announced its 2023 class this week, adding seven new members to boost its prestige. The Hall of Famers chosen for 2023 include Bob Bowman, Malcolm Delaney, Kyle Fuller, Carrie Mason, David Wilson, and Alexander Ziegler.
Bob Bowman was a three-athlete who won 12 National Letters at Virginia Tech and two Southern Conference wrestling titles. Malcolm Delaney, a two-time AP All-American (honorable mention), is currently ranked third. He has carved his name in program history with career assists and points. Kyle Fuller was an All-American in 2013, All-ACC after three seasons, and the No. 14 overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft.
Carrie Mason was a Hokies four-year starter, and Jazmine Reeves was a staple for the Hokies in the 2013 College Cup. She was the first Herman Trophy semifinalist and NSCAA first-team in program history. David Wilson was the 2011 ACC Player of the Year, an All-American second team who still holds the program’s single-season rushing yards record.
Alexander Ziegler was a 3-time NCAA champion and 7-time All-American champion. He won four of his ACC titles during his Tech University career. The seven members of this class will be honored on the weekend of the Tech vs. Purdue football game.
The Hall of Fame induction dinner and awards ceremony are scheduled for Friday, September 8th, at the Inn at Virginia Tech. The 2023 class of Hall of Famers will be recognized at halftime of the football game on Saturday, September 9th. Established in 1982, the Hall of Fame is located at the pedestrian south end of the Kassel Coliseum. With this year’s class, the total number of members in the Virginia Tech Sports Hall of Fame now stands at 225.
