BLACKSBURG, Va. -

The Virginia Tech football team opened training camp Monday, signaling the beginning of the quarterback competition.

Frank Beamer is looking to replace Logan Thomas.

Redshirt senior Mark Leal, redshirt sophomore Brenden Motley and Texas Tech transfer Michael Brewer are all trying to win the position.

"Michael Brewer handled himself well for his first practice at Virginia Tech," Beamer said Monday.

"He had a couple throws he'd like to get back. Motley I thought was very consistent out there."

The Hokies open the season Aug. 30 against William & Mary.
