Expect to See Garrett Greene Today

Morgantown, West Virginia – The West Virginia Mountaineers, 4-3 overall and 3-3 in the Big 12 Conference, play host to the TCU Horned Frogs (3-3, 3-3) today at noon at Mountaineer Field.

Although starting quarterback Jarret Doege has played well throughout the Mountaineers’ first seven games, West Virginia’s offense has sputtered at times and will face a stout Texas Christian offense.

To counter this, expect Head Coach Neal Brown to finally pull the trigger on running some plays or even full offensive possessions with freshman Garrett Greene at quarterback.

Greene, the former four star recruit from Tallahassee, Florida, gives the Mountaineers an entirely new dimension to their offense and allows Neal Brown to run the Zone Read effectively.  West Virginia currently runs the Zone Read offense, but Jarret Doege is not a threat to keep the ball and run, which really limits the effectiveness of the scheme.

Greene has the mobility required to make the Zone Read offense deadly and he has been getting extra reps in practice, according to multiple sources.  Greene has seen action in only one game at West Virginia when the Mountaineers opened the season at home against Eastern Kentucky.  Greene went 3 for 4 and had 24 yards passing, but he was also effective rushing the ball, finishing with 5 carries for 33 yards.

Today is a very important game in the growth of the West Virginia football program and a win will go a long way in finishing this season in a positive way.  Garrett Greene is just the player to help ignite the West Virginia offense and lead this team to a victory today against TCU.
