Dwight Vick, former Virginia ...

Dwight Vick, former Virginia Tech offensive lineman, used to measure his success in the amount of impacts he could make on the defense. Now, the impact he strives for is far more enduring.
On Wednesday, Dwight Vick made a return appearance to campus to speak about his journey before and after Tech in an effort to promote Remember Serve Learn, a new initiative by VT Engage.
Vick was an offensive guard from 1995 to 1999 and was a key component when Tech began its rise to prominence, helping the team to four consecutive bowl games and two consecutive Big East championships. He served as team captain and was nominated All-Big East his final year.
After graduating with degrees in Sociology and Family Child Development, Vick tested the NFL and AFL waters before turning his attention to his self-proclaimed true calling: helping young people achieve success.
"Back when I was young, all I would tell people I planned on doing was being an NFL football player. Simply put, I was egocentric," said Vick.
...
"I look back at the times when I was living in Foxridge while attending Tech and playing video games and talking about jump shots or shoes and realize that I could have made a lot better usage of my life then," said Vick.
...
When I graduated, there was a little over 200 there receiving their degrees with me. Pregnancies, drugs, trouble with the law, deaths and a variety of other reasons were the cause of this attrition," said Vick.
"I see the struggle still happening, these kids with the same talent I had getting lost. This is my motivation for getting back and changing it."
In 2007, Vick was named Director of Student Development for the Manassas-based College Prep World, an enterprise he helped create. The company focuses on determining the best colleges for student-athletes who plan on continuing education, helps them achieve scholarships and also gives clients a few lessons on money management, interviewing skills and resume-building skills, things Vick considers imperative for youth.
As a man who has experienced success, struggle and failure himself, Vick couples that understanding with the time he spent in the classroom and on the field at Virginia Tech when working with younger people.
"The sacrifices I made are benefiting me now," said Vick. "Sometimes when I'm working with kids who've ran into trouble, there could be a room with four gang members, six kids on probation and a couple of runners, and they don't want to hear you. Just like when I had to go up against Miami, I have to go against this now. Except rather than different colored jerseys, the opponent is resistance and burnout. I use the same techniques I learned on the field and apply them to helping break through to these kids that deep down actually want you to help them."
Vick works tirelessly to volunteer and support those around him. He dislikes the labels placed on kids, like that of being 'at-risk,' because he fears that this only leads to judgment, and often it doesn't capture the full story of an individual.
"You always hear about how a lot of kids from broken homes are 'at-risk' because of the situation they've grown up in, but what about the girl that lives with her parents in a gated community that suffers from depression and cuts herself? She's at as much risk as anyone else, and deserves to be helped as well," said Vick.

Dwight Vick's rewarding backup plan
...
BLACKSBURG - Dwight Vick played college football with and against many a future pro.
...
Vick was just bold enough to believe that he, too, belonged in the NFL.After all, he hailed from Hampton High's elite program and was an all-Big East offensive lineman at Virginia Tech.
It didn't happen.Vick toiled in arena ball, worked out for some NFL teams and recovered from harrowing illness.But he never made the show.
"I'm living proof that you have to have a backup plan," Vick says."I thought, 'I've got two undergraduate degrees from Virginia Tech. Let me go face the music in the real world.' "
Those degrees, in sociology and family-child development, led this son of a preacher and educator to northern Virginia, where he serves as a social worker, counseling troubled youth, neglected families and prison inmates.
"I feel like I'm making a difference," he says.
...
Dwight and his sister, Kimberly, "grew up with a service mentality," Norman says.
The Vicks realized Dwight's athletic talents early, but in Mary's words, "education was paramount."If Dwight dared come home from school without his textbooks, Mary marched him back to school and had a janitor open the classroom.
...
Dwight required no such coaxing at Virginia Tech.His curious intellect and effusive personality won over classmates, professors, teammates and coaches.
In fact, they still do.When Vick, his wife, Chanise, and their children, Sydney and Isaiah, strolled into the Hokies' athletic complex recently, they were greeted like celebrities by head coach Frank Beamer, assistants Jim Cavanaugh, Bryan Stinespring and Bud Foster, as well as former teammates Brown and Anthony Midget.
...
Yet while Vick certainly regrets he didn't join that list, he is content with the effort he made and where his life's journey guided him.
"I am proud of who I am," Vick says, "and I embrace the failures that have come to me in my life. â¦I appreciate what God has given me and acknowledge that I am strong because of Him."
As a senior, Vick captained the Hokies in 1998 -- they routed Alabama in the Music City Bowl -- and earned first-team, all-Big East honors.
But he went undrafted, and the Baltimore Ravens gave him only a cursory free-agent look.
Vick eventually landed with the now-defunct Norfolk Nighthawks, an arena team, and to make ends meet worked as a substitute middle school teacher in Hampton.After he and Chanise moved to Manassas for her job as a recruiter for Booz Allen Hamilton, Dwight toiled in the consulting firm's mailroom.
