We are deeply saddened by the passing of our friend and former Hokie DB Keion Carpenter and we offer our deepest condolences to his family and friends.
He was a great person on and off the field and represented the Virginia Tech motto of Ut Prosim. Through his organizations and activities, including The Carpenter House and The Shutdown Academy, Keion served the community, inspiring and supporting young people in efforts live out their dreams. Keion was also a supporter of the Maryland Hokie Club, participating in events and helping us fund raise in support of future Hokie athletes. We appreciate and are thankful for everything he did for us and the Maryland / Baltimore community.
