"On behalf of the entire West Virginia University Band community, our thoughts and prayers go out to the members of the Marching Virginians and the entire Virginia Tech community as they endure this terrible tragedy. We send our deepest condolances for the loss of fellow bandsman Ryan Clark as well as to the friends and familes of all of the victims of this despicable act.
All of the members of the "Pride of West Virginia" and the entire Mountaineer Nation send our warmest and most heartfelt wishes to Hokies everywhere in this time of grief and sadness. God Bless!"
