‘Lightning’ was WVU’s home run threat before Tavon Austin lit up Morgantown

As quick as Tavon Austin or Jock Sanders? Was any former Mountaineer football player ever as fast or zig zag elusive as Austin or Noel Devine? Ask the sometimes controversial Bobby Bowden about some of his players from his 10 years as both an assistant and the head coach of the Mountaineers, and he will […]
