Bailey, Braden, Christian, and Mikel will all be hoping for their opportunity to represent the school beginning next fall.
While they are all superb candidates, one sets himself apart from the rest. He exemplifies everything it means to be a Mountaineer.
The man simply LOOKS like a Mountaineer.
That person is Mikel.
It would be such a missed opportunity for an iconic Mountaineer mascot should he miss out on this chance.
He is The Voice of Motown’s choice to be the next representation of West Virginia University!
