Morgantown, West Virginia – Sophomore quarterback Garrett Greene saw limited time on the field for the Mountaineers last season as the backup to Jarret Doege. Now, Greene is in a four-way quarterback battle with JT Daniels, Will “Goose” Crowder and Nicco Marchiol.
Daniels will almost certainly start for the Mountaineers, but Greene is the most experienced of the remaining three quarterbacks and it’s very likely that he will be the backup once again this season for the team.
Greene, who grew up in Tallahassee, Florida, recently spoke to The Tallahassee Democrat, and he said that he loves Morgantown, loves playing for the Mountaineers, and is excited about the upcoming season.
Greene also revealed that he would like to play another sport for West Virginia as well. Greene, a two-sport star at Chiles High School in Tallahassee, said that would like to try playing baseball for the Mountaineers.
“Baseball is my first love and ‘it will always have a special place in my heart'”, Greene told The Tallahassee Democrat.
Greene, an accomplished catcher in high school, is “looking into potentially joining West Virginia’s baseball team next season.
“I want to play baseball again but I’d have to get some stuff ironed out,” Greene said. “I’ve played both sports basically my whole life, so I understand time demand.”
For now, Greene is focused on preparing for the upcoming football season, but don’t be surprised to see him behind home plate for the Mountaineers next baseball season as well.
