Mountaineers talk growth ahead of season opener

MORGANTOWN, WV (interviews courtesy WVU Athletics) – Hear from WVU offensive lineman James Gmiter and safety Sean Mahone ahead of the Mountaineers’ season opener vs. Eastern Kentucky.

There are several returning veterans anxious to take advantage of the opportunities for more playing time, and they’re also recognizing the responsibilities they have as younger players look up to them. Among the returnees is quarterback Jarret Doege, who was named starter for Saturday’s game with the Colonels.

Following the Eastern Kentucky matchup, WVU will have September 19 off, before opening Big 12 play the following week at Oklahoma State.
