Garrett Greene Shares Game Ball With Someone Special

WVU Quarterback Garrett Greene plans to share yesterday’s game ball with a special family member.

Morgantown, WV – WVU Quarterback Garrett Greene put on a show in his home state yesterday. In a 41-28 win over UCF, Greene accumulated 156 passing yards, 55 rushing yards, and 3 rushing touchdowns – the most by a West Virginia quarterback since Pat White.

During his postgame press conference, Greene was asked about the game ball that he was carrying around. While many assumed that it was his for an incredible performance, he shared that he planned to share it with a special family member.

His grandmother.

Jed Drenning, WVU’s sideline reporter, shared the story via X.

Greene stated that his grandmother, who is a school teacher in Miami, asked for Friday off – something that is a rarity for her. It was the first time she had ever watched him in person. The ball was a reward to her for making it out to a game to watch him.

Quite the gesture by such an incredible leader, athlete, and quarterback.
