Amidst the coaching changes, the revolving door of transfers in and out of West Virginia and uncertainty at certain positions on the field, senior running back Kennedy McKoy has been a model of consistency.
The North Carolina native has played in all 37 Mountaineer games since he arrived in Morgantown in 2016. Last season, McKoy was West Virginia's leading rusher with 802 yards on the ground and 8 touchdowns. He added 224 yards and a score in the receiving game.
Now, as he enters his senior campaign, rookie head coach Neal Brown believes he is destined to go out on top.
"I think his confidence is higher than it ever has been," Brown said. When you get into coaching, you can sense when a player is sitting on a big year and I am hopeful and I believe that he is sitting on a big year."
