Center Jordy Lipsey , guard Ian-Yates Cunningham and reserve Gordie Sammis are seniors this year. Guard Branden Albert , tackle Eugene Monroe and versatile lineman Zak Stair are juniors. That makes for four upperclassmen starting along the offensive line, and with Will Barker being the only proven underclassman currently on the roster, adding talent at offensive line was easily a need heading into Virginia 2008 class. The staff did not waste any time, landing a commitment from 6-7, 275-pound Matt Mihalik the first week of September last
