During the final home basketball game of his senior year, he was brought onto the court and was awarded 2 passes to the Atlantic 10 Basketball Tournament in Philly during a timeout for being a "Super Fan" during his time at VT. The Hokie Bird made the award on behalf of Athletic Director Jim Weaver. Niemo was known to be in the front row of every home game with his familiar red afro hairdo.

    Thanks for the shout out, Niemo. It was a fun ride. I hope this encourages more TechHoops supporters to step up because I’ve got a feeling we might rattle off a few Bear Fights in a row in this Las Vegas Classic. Time to go “All In” on a Bear Fight!
