FAIRMONT -

The buzz surrounding the West Virginia Wesleyan Bobcats football program will be at an all-time high this fall in Buckhannon.

Wesleyan recently welcomed former Pittsburgh Steelers tailback Willie Parker as the new running backs coach.

Nate Montana, son of Joe Montana, will fill the hole Adam Nuegebauer left at the quarterback position.

To top it off the Bobcats are picked to finish third in the conference. Head coach Jonas Jackson said his team is only benefiting from the big name acquisitions.

"It's great for the kids," Wesleyan head coach Jonas Jackson said. "They show up and you got Coach [Willie] Parker there. You've got a guy like Joe Montana there shaking hands with the kids. It's the same thing with Coach [Anthony] Thomas. These are guys, especially in reference to Coach Parker who's the newest coach on our staff. He had to go prove himself."
