#Hokies coach Justin Fuente said he will allow players to leave Blacksburg and go see their families for Thanksgiving, if they're close enough: "These kids have already sacrificed a tremendous amount." Will talk to them about being safe, and the risks re: COVID.
Fuente said the #Hokies won't require players to stay on campus for Thanksgiving.
Said he'll encourage them to understand importance of how they act and who they're around but won't tell them what they can and can't do. Thinks they deserve that for what they've gone through.
