Logan Thomas is brimming with confidence heading into his final college season.

The senior quarterback at Virginia Tech hasn't received any of the advance accolades that preceded a dismal junior year, but he says a new coach and increased understanding have him expecting a big finish.

The Hokies went 7-6 last season, ending a stretch of eight seasons with at least 10 victories.

The 6-foot-6, 260-pound Thomas says he better embraces his role as a leader. That understanding, and confidence in his own preparation, will allow him to be more vocal this season.

Thomas says he wants Hokies fans to be proud again of their school.
