MORANTOWN, W.Va.–On Wednesday morning, Coach Dana Holgorsen was a call-in guest on Philadelphia’s 97.5 The Fanatic to discuss the newest members of the Philadelphia Eagles organization, Rasul Douglas and Shelton Gibson. Holgorsen briefly discussed the two Mountaineers that will be soon moving northeast of Morgantown to Philly.
Holgorsen sung the praises of Douglas and his work ethic, saying how Douglas took advantage of every opportunity and worked “extra hard.” The Mountaineers head coach pointed out how great of a team member Douglas was at West Virginia, how quick of a study he was; having arrived at West Virginia on August 15, learned the game and played in the first game of his first season.
Holgorsen pointed out that he has watched Douglas and fellow newcomer to the Eagles, Shelton Gibson, line up and how exciting it can be to watch the two play.
Holgorsen next discussed Shelton Gibson and his game speed. “Unbelievable” game speed to quote the head coach directly. Radio host Anthony Gargano asked the coach to make comparisons in terms of Shelton Gibson, to which the head coach replied “I don’t watch much football.”
Douglas and Gibson joined fellow Mountaineers Wendell Smallwood and Najee Goode on the Eagles roster and it seems that the Mountaineers pipeline into the Northeast continues on, with the head coach pointing out that he will need to make a trip to Philly to see them at some point.
