Mike Imoh (born July 21, 1984 in Fairfax, Virginia) is a running back free agent. In college, Imoh played wide receiver and tailback for the Virginia Tech Hokies football team. Prior to coming to Tech, he played for Robinson Secondary School in Fairfax, Virginia.

College career

Imoh, a former high school tailback, moved to receiver in his first two seasons at Virginia Tech. The Hokies, who had lost all-Big East receiver Andre Davis to the National Football League, were in desperate need of help at flanker.

In 2003, Imoh became the first Hokie to return a kickoff for a touchdown since 1992 with his 91-yard return against Connecticut.[1] Imoh finished the 2003 season as the top kick returner in the Big East and the third highest kick returner nationally.[2]

Following the 2003 season, Imoh and two teammates - Marcus Vick and Brendan Hill - were convicted of contributing to the delinquency of a minor for allegedly serving alcohol to three underage girls.[3] Imoh was suspsended for three games following the incident.[4]

In 2004, Imoh moved back to tailback, and, following his supension, quickly won the starting job. Against North Carolina, Imoh broke the Virginia Tech single game rushing record set the previous year by Kevin Jones. Due to a record keeping error with the official statistics, Imoh was originally credited with only 236 yards - five short of Jones' total - but Tech's radio statistician noticed a discrepancy between his notes and the official total and was able to have the error corrected.[5]
