Grier to Return for 2018 Season

Published

on

Per WVUSports, West Virginia junior quarterback Will Grier announced he will be returning for the 2018 season.

“After much prayer and consultation with my family and coaches, I have decided to return to WVU for my senior season,” Grier announced. “There is still a great deal that I want this team to accomplish and I look forward to helping lead us to success in 2018. I completely focused and looking forward to building off the successes we had this year and want to do even greater things next year. West Virginia is my home and I couldn’t be more excited about the future here.”

Grier suffered a hand injury in the opening quarter against Texas in November and it is very doubtful he returns for the Mountaineers’ bowl game against Utah later this month. Given his return, Grier should be ready to go by spring camp.

Grier’s announcement was also met with a statement released by Dana Holgorsen.

“Will’s decision to return next year certainly makes it a great day for West Virginia football,” Holgorsen responded. “He is a great leader for our program, and I know our fans enjoy watching his talents on the football field. His teammates and the coaching staff are certainly looking forward to his return, and this is positive news for all involved.”
