With so many West Virginia defensive backs entering the transfer portal, fans are beginning to become concerned about the Mountaineers’ secondary in 2021. However, it does not appear that the team itself is concerned about it at all, especially safety Scottie Young.


Yesterday, Young took to Twitter to embrace the recent underdog role WVU’s secondary has taken on.

“People really think we hurtin, it’s ok tho I luv the underdog role.”

The Arizona transfer loves the challenge and wants to embrace being written off. Young is the kind of leader you need in times like this when a position groups seems depleted.


Don’t worry, folks, the “Climb” is still on, and the Mountaineer defense is ready to prove doubters wrong.
