Sinkfield Returing to Receiver Roots & Bringing Versatility to the Table

After battling a nagging ankle injury and playing just five games in 2018, redshirt sophomore running back Alec Sinkfield is back at full strength for the Mountaineers, and adding more weapons to his arsenal.

With such a deep and talented group of Mountaineer backs, Coach Neal Brown said he challenged all of the running backs, specifically Sinkfield and senior Kennedy McKoy to practice running routes and catching balls.

Sinkfield appears ready for the challenge.

The Delray Beach native said he played both wide receiver and safety in high school at American Heritage and it was not until his senior year that he started playing running back.
