Seizing Their Opportunities
"We have three guys in practice [that are walk-ons]," said UVa head coach Tony Bennett. "I do not know yet how we will decide who suits up or who travels, but we have Jeff [Jones], who's father was a heck of a coach, Maleek [Frazier] , who is great and we tried to get him in games and had him on the roster last year, and Rob [Vozenilek] who was with us two years ago. Those three are practicing and Jeff gives us some depth as a forward. These guys are very valuable to have and they have an unbelievable attitude. They will step out of drills for others to get more reps. They will jump in wherever we need them and I'm happy to have them."
Walk-ons junior Rob Vozenilek, junior Maleek Frazier and freshman Jeff Jones Jr. all were very persistent and resilient as they worked towards their goal. HooNation got the chance to sit down with each of them to talk about their journey.
