WVU Football Tommy Nickolich Award Winners


Since 1991, the Blue & Gold News has sponsored the Tommy Nickolich Memorial Award. The winner is selected each spring by the Mountaineer coaching staff and is awarded to a walk-on member of the football team who distinguishes himself with his attitude and work ethic. The award is presented in memory of Tommy Nickolich, who was a Fairmont native and former WVU football walk-on (1979-82). Nickolich passed away as the result of cancer in 1983.
