Beamer: "Michael Vick's a Good Person"

Frank Beamer was on the LaVar Arrington/Chad Dukes show this week, and, after talking about the Hokies, the inevitable question about Michael Vick was asked.

"I'm pulling for him," Beamer said. "I talked with him a couple weeks ago, and told him once again, and he expressed it, he needs to make better decisions. He needs to get back on his feet and he's working like heck to do that, and that's what I'm pulling for. And I said, 'Look how many kids you could help. Because here you are, you've lived this. You had it all, you had a lot, you've lost a lot, and now you're making better decisions about your life and now you're back on your feet.'

"So I think he could do a lot as far as helping young people with advice to be careful who you're hanging out with and make good decisions. And Michael Vick's a good person. He's made a mistake, made some mistakes, but Michael, to me, is a good person, and I'm pulling for him."
