Virginia Tech CB Jayron Hosley to be featured on ‘Sports Science’

Virginia Tech announced Friday that cornerback Jayron Hosley will fly to California this weekend to take part in a segment for the ESPN show ‘Sports Science.’ The episode is scheduled to air later this fall.

The show, which focuses on the science behind the most extreme events in sports and is hosted by Vienna native John Brenkus, will use Hosley to focus on the speed, reaction time and vision needed to read a quarterback.

Hosley, a junior from Delray Beach, Fla., led the nation with nine interceptions in 2010 and was named an all-American. Earlier this week he was one of three Hokies selected to the all-ACC preseason first team, along with offensive tackle Blake DeChristopher and safety Eddie Whitley.

But Hosley isn’t the first Virginia Tech player to be featured on “Sports Science.” Earlier this year, during the build-up to the NFL draft, the show also filmed a segment with former Hokies quarterback Tyrod Taylor.
