Mountaineers in the Pros

West Virginia Product Will Grier Impresses in Preseason Appearance for Cowboys



Will Grier

It’s essential you make the most out of every opportunity in the NFL, especially when you’re already on your second team after only a few seasons. That’s what former West Virginia quarterback Will Grier did during his time under center in the Cowboys preseason game Saturday night.

Grier, who was claimed off waivers by the Cowboys last year after being released by the Panthers, completed 6 out of 10 passes for 98 yards and also had a 9-yard run to his credit. He entered the game in the second quarter, replacing Cooper Rush who started the game for Dallas.

While Grier has no chance to start in Dallas no matter how well he plays, putting positive film together is important since he hasn’t been able to do that too often in his brief time in the league.

Before being drafted by the Carolina Panthers with the 100th pick (3rd round) of the 2019 NFL Draft, Grier spent two seasons as WVU’s starting quarterback in 2017 and 2018 after transferring from Florida.

Grier threw for a total of 7,354 yards and 71 touchdowns in his two seasons in Morgantown.

In this same game, fellow Mountaineer, Leddie Brown showed what he could do in limited action for the Chargers.
