#OnThisDate in Virginia sports history, Virginia Football becomes the first team to beat Florida State in Atlantic Coast Conference play, as the #24 ranked Cavaliers took down the #2 ranked Seminoles, 33-28 on a Thursday night at #ScottStadium. The Cavaliers were led by running back #TikiBarber, who ran for 193 yards, and safety #AnthonyPoindexter who knocked the ball out of FSU running back, Warwick Dunn's hands just shy of the goal line on the final play to preserve the victory. FSU had won their first 29 conference games as a member of the ACC.

**Ian meets his idol** Five months ago, we introduced you to City of Virginia Beach teenager and pediatric cancer survivor Ian Larmore. The 15 year-old baseball player was unable to complete his freshman season with the Tallwood High School JV team as he suffered effects from the radiation and other procedures that beat his cancer and helped save his life back in 2006. In our follow-up feature, we learn how multiple hospital stays and one unforgettable meeting have Ian eyeing a return to the sport he loves: baseball.

On this date in Virginia sports history in 1994, at Lawson-Fitchko Stadium in Norton, Powell Valley High School running back and 2018 Virginia Sports Hall of Fame inductee Thomas Jones, ran for a then Virginia High School League record 462 yards on 23 carries in the Vikings’ 35-13 Lonesome Pine District win over host J.I. Burton High. Jones, who later starred for Virginia Football and played 12 NFL seasons, broke the then-state mark of 449 yards, set in 1967 by Appalachia’s Edd “The Stonega Stallion” Clark – Jones’ uncle.
