West Virginia Mountaineers quarterback, Garrett Greene, exclaimed on the 3 Guys Before the Game podcast with Tony Caridi, Brad Howe and Hoppy Kercheval that “Anybody can call me and I’m not leaving. That’s kind of been my whole family’s deal is this state’s done a whole lot for you, so you’re going to stay and you’re going to get your degree from there.”
The statement should come as no surprise as Greene, who has been in and out of games for the past two years sat behind Jarrett Doege and JT Daniels, biding his time and performing when given the opportunity. Entering the spring this season, Greene and redshirt freshman quarterback Nicco Marchiol were locked in a quarterback competition, before Greene separated himself.
This season Greene has been one of the best quarterbacks not only in the Big 12 conference but in the nation, compiling a nation best 10.4% Big Time Throw percentage by PFF - a state which tracks passes thrown with “excellent ball location and timing, generally thrown further down the field and/or into a tighter window”
Greene also excelled with the offense as a whole, leading the Mountaineers to the number one ranked rushing offense in Power 5 and number three rushing offense in football. Greene and the Mountaineers averaged 234 yards per game this season, just ahead of Big 12 companion UCF’s 233.
