DANIELS, W.Va. – Following a highly successful Gold-Blue Spring Football Game at the luxurious Greenbrier Resort in White Sulphur Springs, WVU head football coach Dana Holgorsen headed over to Glade Springs for a fun and relaxing fishing outing with “Fly Rod Chronicles” television show host Curtis Fleming.
According to this photo, which was tweeted out by Fleming (@FRCcrew), it looks like Holgorsen also had a successful day on the water. The Mountaineers’ coach donned his waders and reeled in a brook trout, which is the West Virginia state fish.
The WVU offense claimed a 49-46 victory over the defense in the Spring Game. Holgorsen expressed his gratitude to the Greenbrier for their hospitality in his post-game press conference.
“On behalf of Mr. Lyons, our football program and the entire athletic department, I want to send out a sincere thank you to the Greenbrier,” said Holgorsen. “The hospitality down here is unbelievable. Our guys really enjoyed it… You can’t ask for anything better. We had over 6,000 fans out there today. That gets our guys pretty juiced and cranked up. It was a wonderful day for everyone involved. A huge thank you to Mr. Justice (owner) and the Greenbrier for the hospitality. It really is second to none when it comes to hospitality and facilities.”
The annual Spring Game was moved to the Greenbrier this year due to construction at Milan Puskar Stadium.
After a weekend well spent in the beautiful southern half of the Mountain State, Holgorsen and crew conclude the spring portion of football practice and will resume preparation for the 2016-17 season in a few weeks with summer workouts.
