12 Inside Hokie Sports Virginia Tech director of athletics Whit Babcock announced that Virginia Tech alumnus and longtime benefactor, Win Sheridan, has pledged $5 million to the Virginia Tech Football program. Sheridan’s generous gift will help fund a complete redesign and renovation of the Hokies’ locker room facility. A variety of design options and upgrades are currently under consideration. Conceptual renderings for the project will be shared at a later date once further details are finalized and approved. “I am extremely enthused about the direction of the Virginia Tech Football program under the leadership of head coach Brent Pry,” Sheridan said. “Coach Pry was working under Coach Beamer when the Hokies truly emerged onto the national stage with a historic win in the 1995 Sugar Bowl, a victory that helped propel Tech to the National Championship Game following the 1999 season. When our football program is successful, it raises the profile of our entire university. I was fortunate to help fund the construction of the current locker room along with some of my best friends, and it’s truly my pleasure to help transform this space to meet the needs of Coach Pry and our team for years to come. I’m immensely proud of Virginia APEX Founders and longtime Virginia Tech benefactors (L-R): Ted Hanson, Win Sheridan, Jeff Veatch and Brian Callaghan. Tech and the trajectory of a place that means so much to me. It’s a great time to be a Hokie!” Sheridan co-founded Apex Systems, an information technology services company, in 1995 with fellow Tech alums Brian Callaghan and Jeff Veatch. Apex Systems, which was acquired by ASGN Incorporated in 2012, had sales of $2.4 billion in 2021 and employs approximately 30,000 individuals. Sheridan has served as a Director of ASGN Incorporated since 2012. Sheridan was part of the group that provided substantial funding for the original Team United Locker Room in honor of Frank Beamer that was constructed in 2009 as part of a $15 million expansion of the Jamerson Athletic Center. Sheridan was joined in that effort to fund the existing locker room facility by Callaghan, Veatch and fellow Tech alum, Ted Hanson. “Win continues to serve as a great example of the tremendous impact our alumni can have on our overall success and make in the lives of our student-athletes at Virginia Tech,” Babcock said. “Win has consistently set a very high standard in terms of his benevolence and commitment to Tech Athletics over many years.
