First-year cadets Ainsley Brewer, Dom Meoli, and Victor Mou will receive the flags at Saturday’s football game against Richmond.

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, chosen because of their performance in the last game or at practice, carry the American flag, the state flag, and the team’s spirit flag and lead the team onto the field. They deliver the flags to cadets at the south end of the field. 

The cadets, also selected based on their performance in the corps, render honor to the flags and carry them off the field. At home games three first-year cadets are selected, and one or two upper-class cadets travel with the team and receive the flags at away games. 

Brewer is majoring in biological sciences in the College of Science. She is the recipient of a corps’ Emerging Leader Scholarship and in Navy ROTC. She was selected for her dedication to bettering both herself and her classmates. She stays level-headed and has established herself as a standout cadet among her peers.

Meoli is majoring in general engineering in the College of Engineering. He is the recipient of an Emerging Leader Scholarship and in Navy ROTC. He, too, was chosen for his willingness to help his classmates improve and excels at cadet training while remaining humble and professional. He volunteers with Best Buddies in his free time.

Mou is majoring in economics in the College of Science. He is the recipient of an Emerging Leader Scholarship and in Air Force ROTC. He is a motivated first-year cadet who never shies away from a meaningful conversation and is intent on representing the corps well.
