Feggins hopes to get VSU football back to No.1

PETERSBURG, Virginia -- Small town kid, big time talent.

That may be the best way to describe George “Geo” Feggins, Virginia State University’s bone-jarring middle linebacker.

The 6-foot-1, 215-pound senior, who came to the Trojans from Park View High School in South Hill — population 4,541 — is VSU’s lone All-CIAA preseason pick.

“From watching video, Geo was obviously the best defensive player we had last year,” said first-year Coach Reggie Barlow.

“He understands what it takes to play the position. We’ll lean on Geo a lot.”

As a junior, Feggins recorded 78 tackles (55 unassisted) with six sacks, three forced fumbles and one interception.

Many of his determined takedowns were of the ooh and ahh variety. His shaken foes tend to get up slowly.

The sports management major is a perfect gentleman off the field, but turns fierce between the lines.
