BREAKING NEWS: First Mountaineer Opts Out of 2020 Season

Over the next month, players from across the country will be announcing whether they will opt out of the upcoming season due to the danger of playing during a pandemic.

This morning, WVU safety Kerry Martin Jr. announced that he would be sitting out. Martin played in all 12 games as a freshman and recorded 50 tackles, 5 pass breakups, and 2.5 tackles for loss.

As shown in the tweet above, Martin suffers from sickle cell anemia and asthma which could put him at risk. I think I speak for all of Mountaineer Nation when I say I commend him for his decision and look forward to seeing him with another year of training under his belt and coming back stronger for the 2021 season.
