Michael Vick paid a surprise visit to his alma mater Friday, igniting memories of the impact he made during his two-year stretch at Virginia Tech. Vick’s tenacity and ingenuity led the Hokies to the national title game in 1999, redefining what was possible from the quarterback position.

In 1999, Vick passed for a Big East-leading 2065 yards while rushing for another 682. He could run a 4.25-second 40-yard dash that opposing defenses could never gameplan for. If you’ve forgotten what joy Vick brought to the college game, you can relive it below:

One of the best playmakers of all time, I’m glad to see his university give him the respect he deserves.
