The recognition is continuing to pile in for the best that the Mountaineers had to offer during the 2020 season.

Phil Steele, a highly respected sports writer that covers College Football, released his Postseason All American and All Conference teams this afternoon. Throughout his four teams, several Mountaineers received recognition, with four in particular being named to his first team for the Big 12.

Steele named running back Leddie Brown, defensive linemen Darius and Dante Stills, and safety Tykee Smith all to his All-Big 12 first team. However, the names affiliated with the Old Gold and Blue didn’t stop there. Several Mountaineers were listed throughout his four teams in the Big 12. They are as listed below:


2nd team: WR Winson Wright, OL Michael Brown, LB Tony Fields

3rd team: DL Akheem Mesidor, CB Alonzo Addae

4th team: QB Jarret Doege, OL Chase Behrndt, CB Dreshun Miller


The future is bright in Morgantown, and it is because tremendous players like these gentlemen are leading the program.

Let’s Go Mountaineers!
