"Skipper" the cannon is fired by the Virgina Tech Corps of Cadets at every Virginia Tech home football game, both in pre-game festivities and after every Hokies score. The tradition dates back to 1963, when a group of cadets created the cannon for the rivalry game against Virginia Military Institute. President John F. Kennedy's was a Skipper in the Navy, and was also a title for the highest rank in the Corps of Cadets at the time. With the dedication of the cannon occurring after Kennedy's assassination, the name Skipper was chosen.

This triblend tee shows our love for this Hokies tradition. Brought to you in partnership with College Vault.

Shirt is comfortable but the design was a lot more faded than expected.

Brother in-law loved it

The process of ordering this item was pretty straight forward. The ability to review the size and information of the shirt was pretty easy, and my brother-in-law loves VT gear. He tells me the the shirt looks awesome and it is a very comfortable feel.

Comfy shirt, great design

The gray fabric is a bit lighter-weight than the more colorful T-shirts, but it’s comfier in warmer conditions and still insanely soft. The fit is excellent and so is the graphic.
