Big names at WV Wesleyan

Just saw that Willie Parker will be the new assistant football coach at WV Wesleyan beginning this season. He is joining a couple other people in the athletic department whose names you may recognize. It is possible that one could meet all of the following people on a Saturday in Buckhannon this fall:

Willie Parker: Assistant Coach; Pittsburgh Steelers RB (2004 - 2009); 2-time Pro Bowl Selection; 2-time Super Bowl Champion; longest run from scrimmage in a Super Bowl (75 yards)

Anthony Thomas (A-Train): Special Teams Coordinator; University of Michigan's 2nd all-time leading rusher, 1st all-time rushing TD's; Member of 1997 National Championship team; Chicago Bears RB (2001 - 2004); NFL AP Offensive Rookie of the Year 2001; RB2 on my 2002 fantasy football team which, against all odds, managed to win...2 games all season...it wasn't my fault (insert excuse #112 here)

Joe Montana??: WVWC brought in college "journeyman" quarterback Nate Montana for his senior season. Montana has jumped from Notre Dame to Pasadena City College to Notre Dame to Montana (really?) to WVWC since beginning his post high school career in 2008. His father is, well, you know who his father is. As a Dallas Cowboys fan I can't say he's my favorite quarterback. His pass to Dwight Clark in the 1981 NFC Championship game is my first memory as a child. LAME! However, he is one of the greatest quarterbacks of all time, and would be someone very cool to meet. Is it possible he may come to watch Nate play a game or two? He does have another son playing QB at Washington, but I'd say he'll end up in Buckhannon at some point.

Patrick Beilein: Men's Basketball Coach; WVU Guard (2002 - 2006); member of 2005 Elite Eight team, 2006 Sweet Sixteen team; scored over 1,000 points in WVU career; While not the national name recognition some the other men listed here enjoy, Beilein is a local legend along with Gansey, Pittsnogle, and the rest of that 2005 team. Very cool to have him back in the Mountain State.

WVWC should be interesting this year. It would probably be worth the trip to Buckhannon to check it out. The football team averaged 37.5 points and 384 passing yards per game in 2011, so the team itself is apparently worth the price of admission.
