New, 2 comments

With only 5 more days until the 2011 season begins for the Mountaineers, we come to the most inevitable former player in this countdown. Today, the spotlight is shone once again on arguably the greatest Mountaineer football player ever, Pat White.

Pat White was the quarterback for the Mountaineers between 2005 - 2008 and is the only quarterback in history to lead his team to four bowl victories. After sharing the quarterbacking duties for the first half of his red-shirt freshman season, White took over as full time starter following the Louisville 3OT game and never looked back. He finished his WVU career as the all time leading NCAA rusher amongst quarterbacks and 2nd all time amongst all WVU rushers with 4480 yards (6.5 yards per carry, no less). He also managed 47 rushing touchdowns to go along with 56 touchdown passes, 6049 passing yards and a 65% completion percentage.
