There are thousands of people who donate money to Virginia Tech, especially their football program. But one of the most loyal and well known boosters is Wes Worsham, and it's hard to decide what's more recognizable - his pants or his name.  But what is clear is that Worsham has become a staple on the Hokie sideline. “It's unbelievable,” Worsham said.  “I thoroughly enjoy it.  It looks like the last few years people seem to know me and they didn't at first.” But as much as people see his name at Lane Stadium, not many people know how his love for Tech came to be.  It all started when he was in the service and a friend of his, who was from Blacksburg, didn't make it back from Korea.

The jury is now deliberating the case.  --------------- Closing arguments are now underway in the Wesley Earnest case. DAY NINE: November 19, 2010 Testimony ended Friday morning with the conclusion of the defense case and a surprising revelation from Earnest, who claims he entered his wife's house before her death without her permission. The admission came as Earnest re-took the stand for cross-examination.  Prosecutors asked Earnest about a time in 2006 when he entered Jocelyn Earnest's Pine Bluff home uninvited.  Wesley admitted to climbing in through a window.  At this point, Jocelyn had changed the locks on her home and Wesley was unable to gain entry through a doorway.  While in the home, prosecutors asked Earnest if he wrote on a "timeline," to which Earnest did not recall.
