27 more days until the Mountaineers kick off the 2011 season against "that school down south (and a little bit west)." For GameCon 27, today we honor former defensive back, Rick Sherrod:
Sherrod was a member of the Mountaineer football team from 1998-2001, seeing most of his action during his junior and senior years. Over his career, he is credited with 4 interceptions, 285 tackles, 2 forced fumbles and 3 fumble recoveries. Also considered for today was Mike Scott, a defensive back from 1981-1984.
