Episode 26 visits with Hokie 184-pound redshirt freshman Zack Zavatsky. Ranked in the top 15 by three of the major rankings services, Zavatsky is coming off a nice tournament in Las Vegas beating All-Americans Blake Stauffer of Arizona State and Willie Miklus of Missouri.

A native of Latrobe, Pa., Zavatsky talks about the transition from high school to college, winning a state championship in Pennsylvania and dealing with the pending competition for the starting spot with teammate Austin Gabel.

Assistant Coach Tony Robie opens up the show with some news about tickets available for the Moss Arts Center, the return of Dennis Gustafson and his thoughts on Zavatsky's development.
