Jason Colson sighting

Both hands on the ballTwo years ago Jason Colson was set to be the next WVU running back to carry the load for the Mountaineers. Colson's season started with a nightmare at Syracuse and ended with a fumble at Virginia Tech. Enter Steve Slaton and exit all other running backs. Colson's football career is continuing after his graduation and he started off his new season with a much better showing. Colson has two rushing and a receiving touchdown in his debut with the West Virginia Gladiators in a 41-6 beatdown of the TriState Spartans in Steubenville, Ohio. Colson saw limited playing time due to the blowout and ended the day with no fumbles. The Gladiators are coached by Willie Cunningham, who played for the Mountaineers in the 80's. Other former Mountaineers on the team are RB Freddie Little ('02-'03), WR Terrence Wiltshire ('97-'98), & OL Roderick Smith ('98-'01) and maybe Jeff Noechel who has been practicing with the team. We will try to keep you updated on all the exciting semi-pro action as the season continues. I love any league where linemen smoke in the huddle.
