SAY HELLO TO THE TURNOVER MINER’S HELMET

+

For weeks now, we’ve been screaming on our social media for our very on "turnover [insert object here]" since seemingly every other college football team has one. Our choice was the Turnover Musket, in which the player would run over to the Mountaineer and fire the musket after getting a turnover on defense.

Unfortunately, the world wouldn’t be able to handle something that cool, so we get the next best thing. The Turnover Miner’s Helmet.

Kenny Robinson has donned the helmet twice today.
