Before they were Hokies, they were Gobblers. Before they were VT, they were VPI.

The nickname "Gobblers" first originated from football Coach Branch Bocock in 1909. In 1971, the school appended "Fightin'" to "Gobblers". In 1981, Football Coach and AD Bill Dooley changed the nickname officially to "Hokie".

In the same vein, Virginia Tech - officially named Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University - was known as VPI until 1969, when the switch was made to Virginia Tech.

We take both pieces of tradition and print the Gobbler Mascot, with a "VPI" hat, on a maroon tee. Brought to you in partnership with College Vault.

Love it

Very comfortable. Go up a size from what you typically wear though, as they run a little small.

Almost perfect

Shirt is soft and comfy, but the logo/text seems just a bit below the normal quality for their shirts. Still, happy to wear my FIGHTIN' GOBBLERS shirt.

This is my new favorite shirt

This is such a comfy shirt with such a badass design. Really wouldn’t mind a few more color options. Can’t wait for them to bring out more orange
