After waiting three seasons, Garrett Greene finally got his chance today against Oklahoma. Coming off the bench, the Tallahassee native led the Mountaineers to their first victory over Oklahoma since 2008, 23-20.
Greene, who finished the game with 138 passing yards and 118 rushing yards, had every opportunity to leave the program since 2020. Neal Brown remained critical of Greene, deciding to stick with Jarret Doege over him – much to the dismay of fans. But instead of being selfish and seeking playing time elsewhere, he decided to stick with it and remain a Mountaineer.
With J.T. Daniels starting to regress, and players like Will Crowder and Nicco Marchiol simply not ready to go yet, Greene finally got his chance today. He waited his turn, and his time finally came. This, my friends, is exactly what the slogan “Trust the Climb” means.
It’s not always easy, and it’s not always straight up and down. However, the top of the mountain will be worth the fight.
Garrett Greene is Trust the Climb. He will now likely have the opportunity to prove himself in WVU’s final two games. His time is here, and honestly, I expect him to shine.
A star may have been born today in Morgantown, West Virginia.
