Vick apologizes for obscene gesture to fans

Get the inside scoop on your favorite team:

BLACKSBURG, Va. - Virginia Tech quarterback Marcus Vick apologized for making an obscene gesture to fans during Tech's 31-17 win Saturday at West Virginia.

Early in the third quarter, the younger brother of Atlanta Falcons quarterback Michael Vick was caught on camera quickly extending his middle finger toward the stands after he was run out of bounds.

"I apologize for letting my emotions get the best of me Saturday," Vick said in a statement issued Sunday by Virginia Tech. "What I did was wrong and I am sorry. My goal is to be a leader of this team and do things the right way."

Vick said he would have no further comment.

"In the heat of the moment, he made a mistake," said Billy Hite, an associate head coach for the Hokies. "Marcus knows he can't react like that."
