Issue #21 of the TSL Extra is here, and this month's issue focuses on the VHSCA All-Star game and the beginning of a series of articles that ranks past Tech recruiting classes.

This issue leads off with two articles related to the Virginia High School Coaches Association All-Star game. One article highlights Tech recruits Jimmy Williams, Jonathan Lewis, Darryl Tapp, and Cary Wade. Their performances and future plans are detailed.

The other VHSCA article is an interesting interview with West All-Star Alan Wheeling (William and Mary), who gives us his impressions of the ten Hokie signees he played with and against in the game (log on to find out what Brandon Gore did for $65!).

We also bring you an article that ranks the 1990 recruiting class, both as individuals and as a whole. In the coming months, we'll highlight other VT recruiting classes from 1991-onward for comparisons.

Tying it all together are articles about a football playoff, Lane Stadium expansion, and the true origins of the word hokey/hokie. And as a bonus, this month's issue has an alternate cover you can download!

Here are the details on this month's articles:
