WVU WR Noah Massey Lands on Watch List for Prestigious Award



WVU Football WR Noah Massey

Even before he plays a game for WVU, wide receiver Noah Massey is already being recognized nationally.

Massey, who is jumping up to the Division I level after spending the last two seasons with Angelo State, is a member of the watch list for the prestigious Earl Campbell Tyler Rose Award. The 6-foot-4, 230-pound Massey is one of 69 players around the country to make this initial watch list.

The press release to unveil Massey and the rest of the watch list explained the Earl Campbell Tyler Rose Award. It says the award “recognizes the top offensive player in Division I football who also exhibits the enduring characteristics that define Earl Campbell: integrity, performance, teamwork, sportsmanship, drive, community and tenacity; specifically, tenacity to persist and determination to overcome adversity and injury in pursuit of reaching goals.”

There is a criteria a player must meet in order to be considered for the award. The nominee must have been either born in Texas and/or graduated from a Texas High School and/or played at a Texas-based junior college or currently playing at Texas D1 four-year college. Massey, a Houston native, attended Spring Westfield High School in Harris County, Texas.

The current group of players will be narrowed down to a select 16 in November and then a final five a month later before the winner is announced on January 10.

Massey’s bigger size now offers the West Virginia offense a physicality that could prove to be extremely valuable.

In his two years at Angelo State, Massey made 81 receptions for 1,083 yards and scored nine touchdowns. He caught 52 balls for 684 yards and four touchdowns during the 2022 season. Massey initially started off his college career at Bowling Green.

West Virginia had the difficult task of having to replace almost all of its receiving production from 2022 this offseason. And while head coach Neal Brown and his staff have put in that work, Massey’s size adds a new dimension for the WVU offense.
