For the last three years, Vic Hall was a cornerback for the Cavalier football team, and held his own at the position. A quarterback in high school, Hall was converted to a cornerback upon arriving at Virginia, and played 37 games at the position. The senior, however, is showing just how talented he really is.

Hall is one of three candidates for the starting quarterback job, a position he is very familiar with. Hall led Gretna High School to two state championships in high school and was a three time All-State First Team member. Now, he is competing with Jameel Sewell and Marc Verica for the starting spot at Virginia.

That's not where it ends for him. The Cavaliers released their depth chart for the William and Mary game Monday, and Hall was the only player listed as a punt returner. Al Groh confirmed that Hall would return the punts, saying that he is the best man they have at that position and gives them a chance to score every time he touches the ball. Hall assumed punt returning duties in 2007 and has held them ever since. He returned a punt for 67 yards against Duke in 2007, and set a career high with 86 punt return yards against Pittsburgh that same season.

Hall and the Cavaliers will open their season this Saturday when they face William and Mary at 6:00pm. Click the above video link to hear from Groh and Hall on punt returning.
