WVU's Dynamic Duo
Football is often times a test of will. Games are won in the fourth quarter or at least that's what coaches tell you. But the Mountaineers put their 2017 home opener away early. And if there was a "test of will"- Will Grier, that is, then the junior quarterback aced that test with ease.
Grier, along with receiver David Sills, gave mountaineer fans hope. Lots of it, too. With his 352 yard passing performance to compliment his five TD passes against ECU, Grier is sure to have many more fans in Morgantown today than even yesterday. Sills was his favorite target. The junior receiver caught seven passes for 153 yards and three touchdowns. No doubt, Sills is a guy Grier knows he can count on.
"He's seen some good stuff", said Grier. "He's a good player, runs good routes. He worked a lot on technique and it's worked out. He's been in the right place at the right time. I'm going to keep feeding all of these guys."
"All the receivers, we put in constant effort throwing the ball" said Sills. "I really do think we've worked hard for this. I believe if you work hard for everything on and off the field it's going to pay off."
The Mountaineers are back in action Saturday at noon in Morgantown hosting Delaware State.
