WVU's real warrior deserves respect

Sometimes you interview a subject who has a story that goes beyond the average, everyday athlete -- West Virginia walk-on Bryan Logsdon's story is miles beyond most.

He's a guy who will be 28 later this month.

He's a guy who was cut once from the team.

He's a guy who never played high school football.

And, oh yeah, he's a guy who is a Navy veteran and saw time in combat.

You want your kids to have a role model on this WVU team? I am sure there are quite a few to choose from. That said, there might not be one better than Logsdon, even if he might never play a down.



  • A reminder, there will be a live WVU football chat later today (Thursday) at 2 p.m. Logging in is tremendously easy and can be done here:

    Also, remember, if you can't be there at 2, you can drop your question(s) into the chat room beginning at 6 a.m. and, when I log on to fetch the questions at 2 p.m., I will see them and be able to answer them. 

    I will be in Morgantown by that time. Now, I just need to figure out if I will do that chat from one of my two offices there (Starbucks or Panera) or the Mountaineer Field press box. Suggestions?

  • Don't forget about the LIVE GAME DAY THREAD. It will hit the blog about 1:30 p.m. I need you to make some posts and, also, send me those cell phone photos from your tailgate parties/home parties/inside the stadium to This email address is being protected from spambots.
