Virginia Tech honors Frank Beamer with helmet sticker

Frank Beamer announced on Nov. 1 that he would retire at the end of the season after nearly 29 years on the Virginia Tech sidelines.

To show their appreciation for the Hokies icon, the team will wear helmet stickers during Beamer's farewell tour beginning Thursday night against Georgia Tech.

Virginia Tech shared photos of the stickers on social media Wednesday night:

The helmet sticker honors Beamer's achievements with the seven stars representing his four ACC titles and three Big East titles while the image is taken from a photo after the Hokies finished the 1999 season undefeated.

Beamer started his college football career as a cornerback for the Hokies and returned to coach his alma mater in 1987. During his time in Blacksburg, Beamer has collected 234 wins as the Hokies head coach and currently remains the longest-tenured head coach in the nation.

There is no denying that Beamer and his legendary "Beamer Ball" are the ultimate representations of Virginia Tech football. So these helmet stickers are just a cool and simple gesture to show how much Beamer has meant to the program.
