(in best hockey PA announcer's voice): ONE WEEK!!!

We have reached the 7 day mark of our countdown and today we recognize former running back, Noel Devine:

His YouTube high school highlights are the stuff of legend. His WVU highlights aren't too bad either. Noel Devine ran the ball for WVU during the 2007 - 2010 seasons and along the way, dazzled, shocked and awed Mountaineer fans and opponents all over. Noel is one of the select few (among Slaton, White and perhaps a few others) to wear a Mountaineer uniform that only needed the slightest crease to be able to take it to the house. Despite being a backup to Slaton his freshman season and an injury plagued senior campaign, Devine is listed third on the all-time rushing yards list at WVU behind Avon Cobourne and Pat White. His career totals include 4315 rushing yards (with an astounding 5.9 ypc average, matching Steve Slaton) for 29 touchdowns to go along with 98 receptions for 710 yards and 2 touchdowns.
