WVU Quarterback Garrett Greene has weathered the storm of backup hell, and now has a chance to be the starting signal-caller in Morgantown.
Morgantown, WV – The quarterback position has not been one of great success for WVU under Neal Brown. Austin Kendall, Jarret Doege, and J.T. Daniels all fell short of expectations, leading to the Mountaineers underperforming over the last four seasons. All three were transfers that Brown brought into to lead the team as the starting quarterback but it just didn’t work out for a variety of reasons.
Garrett Greene, Brown’s first high school quarterback he recruited at West Virginia, has waited patiently and been an outstanding teammate during his time in Morgantown. While many players have come and gone over the last 3 years, Greene has humbly remained with the Mountaineers and has continued to trust the process.
Greene, who was 43-78 with 5 touchdowns, 3 interceptions and 4 touchdowns as a starter late in the season in relief of JT Daniels, has paid his dues and is now ready to take over as the full-time starter. If anyone has had a reason to transfer during his career, it’s Greene, who has routinely been overlooked and not given a real shot to shine, and yet, he’s remained one of the hardest workers and best teammates on the roster.
In the age transfers and lack of loyalty, Garrett Greene has proven to be a true Mountaineer and a player that West Virginia fans can really get behind.
When we get pissed at players for transferring, let’s make sure we show love to the ones that stay and no one has had more reason to transfer but didn’t than GG. Thank you #QB1 @garrett3greene pic.twitter.com/O7TYwEQyt7
