Morgantown,W.VA. – Wednesday afternoon football head coach Neal Brown addressed the media via Zoom, his first press conference in several weeks. Brown was excited to announce the team’s Iron Mountaineer award winners. This award is normally announced at the team’s spring game, which was ultimately cancelled due to the Covid-19 outbreak.
Mountaineers Dante Bonamico, Noah Guzman, James Gmiter, and Bryce Wheaton are this year’s Iron Mountaineers.
This award, which has been presented to 67 Mountaineers since 1996, is given to the student-athletes with the most outstanding performance in WVU’s off-season strength and conditioning.
The award itself if a beauty to look at; it is a 6.2 pound coal statue made entirely with West Virginia natural resources.
