As the West Virginia Mountaineers descended upon the Big 12 media days, Heisman trophy candidate and senior quarterback Will Grier was the talk of the conference. Not only is Grier the leading returning passer in conference, he is considered one of the best returning quarterbacks in college.
As Grier made his rounds throughout media day, he sat down with Fox Sports for a few good minutes. When asked about the pressure that comes with expectations being one of the more senior-laden teams in conference, Grier expertly praised his teammates as “a great group of guys” and they would enjoy “going out and competing”.
When Grier was asked about his timeline when he transferred from the Florida Gators under extenuating circumstances for performance enhancing drugs, Grier talked about his “great support system at home and being surrounded by a great group of guys and coaches who love and understand the game”.
When Will was asked about his receiving corp, including David Sills V and Gary Jennings, one that is considered one of the best in the nation, Grier reiterated that the group is a great group of guys and how their hard work helps make him a better player.
Fox Sports then asked Grier about his baby girl and how offensive coordinator Jake Spavital, Grier talked about his baby daughter is his world and you can’t really explain or talk about the experience until you become a parent. This part is true, as a parent, there is no way to explain to some of you just what it means to be responsible for another human being who thinks of you as invincible. When it comes to his relationship with “Spav”, Grier and Spavital are able to bond over their love of football and their unique bond as fathers of young children.
