    Arther is a big fan of the Mountaineers, and sports in general, so we met him at Milan Puskar Stadium for a tour.

He goes further than the field, though, for his favorite subject in school."Everybody else says 'gym,' which is true, I do like gym, but I also like math,"Artherr said. "Math is probably my favorite actual subject."He's on the honor role and also stands out for being considerate of the people ...
