As the Smoking Musket West Virginia All-Time Football Draft reaches the fourth round, my second consecutive pick following Grant Wiley is one of, if not, the fastest running backs to ever where the Old Gold and Blue for the Mountaineers.
With the 13th pick of the Smoking Musket West Virginia All-Time Football Draft, Team _CBH_ selects running back Noel Devine.
Devine comes in at No. 3 in the West Virginia football record book with 728 carries and 4,315 rushing yards, while being No. 5 in terms of rushing touchdowns scored during his four years in Morgantown.
Always know for the big play ability, Devine has the second longest run in West Virginia football history, a 92-yard touchdown run against Syracuse in 2008, only bested by Pat Randolph’s 96-yard run against Northern Illinois in 1986. In addition to that, Devine owns six more of the longest runs for West Virginia that each covers at least 70 yards.
While numbers are good, it’s even better to watch Devine do his thing for West Virginia on the field:
The core of Team _CBH_ with Pat White, Steve Slaton, Grant Wiley and Noel Devine arguably has to be the best of the four teams being assembled through this draft of the best talent from West Virginia.
