WVSN Daily Notebook: Sept. 21, 2020

UPDATE 8:16 p.m.

Jedd Gyorko just homered to put the Brewers up 1-0 over the Reds in the fifth.

UPDATE 8:10 p.m.

UPDATE 8:05 p.m.

It’s Bob Huggins’s 67th birthday.

UPDATE 4:53 p.m.

West Virginia has offered 2022 defensive end Jimmy Scott. Scott (6-foot-3, 250 lbs.) verbally committed to Tennessee in August.

247Sports rates him as a three-star prospect out of Hamburg, New York, and as the fourth-best player in the state. Other than WVU and Tennessee, Scott also has power five offers from Arizona State, Arkansas, Boston College, Duke, Illinois, Maryland, Michigan State, Minnesota, NC State, Ole Miss, Pitt, Rutgers, Syracuse and Texas A&M.

UPDATE 12:15 p.m.

Former Mountaineer lefty John Means set a new career-high in strikeouts yesterday, fanning a dozen Rays in a 2-1 win for the Orioles. Between the first and third innings, Means racked up seven consecutive punchouts.

Means was also featured on the @PitchingNinja Twitter account a couple of times yesterday.

UPDATE – 7 a.m.

Let’s get the day and week started with some high school football scheduling news. Some games were added to the schedule for this week:

  • Musselman at Fairmont Senior, 7 p.m. Friday
  • Tygarts Valley at Gilmer County, 7 p.m. Friday
  • Linsly at Wheeling Park, 7 p.m. Friday
  • Mount View at River View, 7:30 p.m. Friday
  • Cameron at East Fairmont, 7 p.m. Thursday

Of note from that batch of new games is Linsly’s trip to Wheeling Park. Linsly is a former military schools turned boarding and day school located in Wheeling, but has never played a football game against Wheeling Park — which opened in 1976. The last time Linsly played one of the schools that consolidated to form Wheeling Park was a 1975 game against Warwood High. Linsly is not a West Virginia Secondary School Activities Commission member, and is not eligible for playoff contention in West Virginia high school sports.
