WVU should consider in-state talent


Bluefield Daily Telegraph

— Another fall, another season for West Virginia (Mountaineer) University football. We are so proud of our team and how hard they work.

Win or lose, they are always full of surprises. The biggest surprise to me is how the recruiters choose who is going to get the scholarship.

The funding mostly comes from West Virginia people, but the benefit goes to another state.

What’s wrong with the picture?

Wake up and let’s stop this from happening every year.

Our state has a  lot of high school seniors who made all state. Why can’t they be considered?
