Starting off with some NFL news for former Mountaineers in the one door closes, but another opens category. The NY Giants have cut Brandon Myles. Meanwhile former long snapper Tim Lindsey signed with the Atlanta Falcons yesterday.
In award news Dan Mozes won the Fred Schaus Captain's Award for the most outstanding varsity captain at WVU.
Mozes, a starter on four New Year’s bowl teams from Washington, Pa., earned consensus All-America honors in 2006. He was the 2006 Rimington Trophy winner, an Outland Trophy finalist, Lombardi Award semifinalist, three-time first team all-BIG EAST selection and participated in the Senior Bowl. Mozes was a part of the winningest senior class in WVU history that finished with a 38-12 record during his career. A member of the Athletic Director’s Academic Honor Roll and BIG EAST Academic All-Star who earned second team Academic All-America honors, Mozes graduated last December with a degree in communications.
Mozes also took home the golden comb for best hair in the athletic department. The award come with a lifetime supply of conditioner. Teammate Jay Henry won the Red Brown Cup for outstanding all-around student-athlete in terms of athletic, academic and civil achievement. Henry finished with a 4.0 and earned dual degrees in finance and accounting, had 181 career tackles, volunteered for Special Olympics and Read-A-Loud programs, rescued puppies from car fires, and saved Morgantown from a stray meteor.
AOL fanhouse has pictures of the Playboy All-American team photoshoot and good god Steve Slaton is wearing yellow. I take back everything nice I've said about those jerseys. They are blindingly yellow. Slaton will apparently have to register his arms as weapons every time WVU goes on the road. Amos Zereoue is jealous. Speaking of Famous Amos, there is a new restaurant in NYC bearing his name which you can visit here. According to this article Amos is the owner.
Finally, the White Star is open again so all is right in the world.
