In the 126 years of West Virginia football there have been many special players, most notably at the quarterback position.
The style of offense at WVU has certainly changed throughout the years and you can’t help but wonder how some of those guys would fare in today’s system. Plugging in a dual threat guy like Major Harris or a great pocket passer like Marc Bulger would be extremely fun to watch. Keep in mind that this list ONLY includes players who have finished their playing days at West Virginia, so Will Grier is not eligible for this list until next year.
So without further adieu let’s get to it!
10. Oliver Luck (1978-81)
The bottom part of this list was hard to compile because someone is going to not be happy that player, “X” got snubbed. You just can’t go wrong here at No. 10 with Oliver Luck. Luck never truly, “lit it up” in his four years in a Mountaineer uniform, but did progress each year in Morgantown and led the Mountaineers to a 26-9 Peach Bowl victory over the Florida Gators.
Luck threw for 5,765 yards and 43 TD/45 INT with a 50.9% completion rate.
Following his senior season, he was drafted by the Houston Oilers in the 2nd round (44th overall) and was the Oilers backup for five seasons. Luck is more well-known at West Virginia for his time spent as the schools athletic director from 2008-14.
