Eddie Royal produced for Virginia Tech since the day he stepped on campus.
He started 11 games as a true freshman, receiving freshman All-American honors for totaling over 1,100 all-purpose yards and averaging nearly 30 yards a return on kickoffs.
Royal continued to produce for the Hokies as every season went on, including during his junior year when he garnered second-team All-ACC and honorable mention All-America honors.
His senior season, Royal was named first-team All-ACC as well as a second-team All-American, which capped a Hokie career that consisted of setting a school record for all-purpose yards (4,686) and an ACC record for most punt return yards in a career (1,296).
He was a valuable receiver, too, by racking up 119 career receptions (fourth in school history), 12 receiving touchdowns (fifth in school history) and 1,778 receiving yards (sixth in school history).
