I honestly thought the loss to pit and the loss of Richie Fraudriguez would be too much for the school to withstand. But, the team played their heart out. The defense was strong and the offense fired on all cylinders. Hell, we even had to play the refs most of the game and still won.
I need to go to bed but there’s too much adrenaline.
Let’s Go Mountaineers!!!!!
