West Virginia announced nine award winners from its 56-10 win over Eastern Kentucky in the 2020 football opener.
Offense: Leddie Brown
The junior running back averaged 12.3 yards per carry on ten attempts to tie for game high rushing honors.
Defense: Tony Fields
Las Vegas, Nevada
In his first WVU game, the senior linebacker led all tacklers with 10, inclduing four solo stops.
Offensive Line: Mike Brown
WVU’s lovable senior guard graded out the highest of all blockers at 87%.
Special Teams: Alonzo Addae
Another senior who started off his only Mountaineer career with a bang, the safety had a huge hit on a kickoff return — one of his seven stops on the day.
Scout Offense: Trent Jackson
The dedicated scout teamer “Did a good job of getting everyone together” according to head coach Neal Brown in leading up to the Eastern Kentucky game.
Scout Defense: Lanell Carr
St. Louis, Missouri
Carr also logged game time with a tackle, earning his way onto the field with a good week of practice.
Scout Special Teams: Quamaezius Mosby
Wheeling, West Virginia
The West Liberty transfer practiced but was not eligible to play last year, but continued to uphold the WVU walk-on tradition of solid performance in the program.
Blue Collar: Jackson Knipper
Knipper stepped into the void left by a pair of suspended tight ends and had a big role in blocking for the resurgent Mountaineer running game. He played 31 snaps in his first significant action after seeing a handful of snaps in four games in 2019.
Juice Squad: Evan Matthes
With self-generated enthusiasm even more important without fans in the stands, Matthes got the nod for keeping the hype up on the sidelines.
