WVU Football’s Finest On & Off the Field
What do two of college football’s star players do when they have a free moment from a very busy schedule?
They visit children hospitalized at WVU Medicine’s Ruby Memorial Hospital.
WVU football Heisman hopeful Will Grier and his star receiver, David Sills, visited with children on Monday, including Doddridge County’s Brennan Gum.
Gum, a promising cross country runner, has had to battle a knee injury over the past year. He had surgery on his left knee last Thursday, then had to endure a second surgery, this time on his right knee on Monday.
He’s now had two surgeries on his left knee and one on his right. The cartilage damage in his right knee, which occurred in his school’s gym, will require a second surgery.
The two star athletes pumped up Gum with their visit, encouraging him to battle back from his injuries. They gave examples of other athletes who had battled back to become even stronger. They also praised the efforts of WVU Medicine and the hospital staff for providing quality care.
