In this week’s edition of “Where are they at Wednesday”, we catch up with Mountaineer running back, Quincy Wilson.
Wilson played for the Mountaineers from 1999-2003 as a running back. He finished his career at WVU off with 474 rushing attempts, 2608 rushing yards, 20 touchdowns.
Wilson is now in his fourth season with WVU as the assistant for football operations. When asked about this season Wilson said that the kids “hung in there after a tough October”, where the Mountaineers went winless the entire month after a veritable murderer’s row of games against the Big 12’s upper echelon.
Regarding this year’s WVU squad, Wilson thinks RB Wendell Smallwood was the most impressive player on the team this season. Reports have emerged about Smallwood saying he had filed his papers for the NFL draft. Wilson tells us that Smallwood will make the best choices for his family, and go from there.
Wilson had a stint in the NFL, drafted in the seventh round of the 2004 NFL draft by the Atlanta Falcons. Wilson said that being drafted was the one thing that stuck out to him the most, saying that it was a dream of his ever since he was little. He went on to play for the Cincinnati Bengals until 2008.
Wilson is now the Assistant Director of Football Operations for the Mountaineers.
