Cadet Angel Carcamo-Reyes will travel with the Hokies receive the flags at Saturday’s football game against Miami.

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. 

Carcamo-Reyes is a sophomore in Navy ROTC-Marine option majoring in National Security and Foreign Affairs in the College of Liberal Arts and Human Sciences. He is a fire team leader for his corps company, overseeing and training small group of first-year cadets. Through that work, Carcamo-Reyes has developed the reputation of being a textbook example of an exemplary cadet and continues to push those around him to be the best version of themselves they can be.
