Legg’s Leg Earns WVU Football Conference Special Teams Honor



MORGANTOWN, W.Va. – Fourteen field goals. That’s how long it took for WVU Football’s redshirt junior kicker Casey Legg to miss. That not only continues to lead the country and the conference, but earns him his first Big 12 Conference Special Teams Player of the Week honor.

Against the TCU Horned Frogs on Oct. 23, Legg booted 27-, 38-, and 49-yard field goals, before his first miss of the season was blocked by TCU’s Ochaun Mathis. The last make, a 49-yard kick to boost the Mountaineers up 23-17, was his longest of the season, and second longest of his career; the only shot further was during the 2019 season: a 51-yard field goal during the 24-20 Kansas State victory.

Regardless, Saturday’s effort was more than enough to solidify a Player of the Week honor. Through his four seasons with the Mountaineers, this is Legg’s first Big 12 Conference honor. He joins Iowa State’s Brock Purdy (offensive) and Will McDonald IV (defensive), and fellow Mountaineer Charles Woods and Kansas’ Devin Neal (newcomers) as Big 12 Football Players of the Week.
