“It’s sweet. Obviously, Will (Grier) came, David (Sills V) came, (Trevon) Wesco was here. Gary Jennings came. Hakeem Bailey came. Michael Laughlin. All those guys. They’re all close. I’m all close with them. That was cool. That means a lot to me for them to come out and watch,” said UHS quarterback Logan Holgorsen.  

Holgorsen says his dad attends as many games as possible, juggling an NCAA Football team schedule that means Friday flights or Friday night meetings. 

For WVU commit Amir Richardson, catching two touchdowns not only got the attention of his future head coach, but someone he looks up to at the position now. 

“Talking to David Sills after the game, he told me that he was impressed. He saw that I was trying to put on for the city just like he does,” said Richardson  

Both Amir and Logan said they made an impression with the current Mountaineer players. Holgorsen proving he’s got game. Richardson paying homage to the latest great WVU wideout who he looks up to. 

“I already told Logan, I was joking around, if I score I’m going to do the ice to David Sills. Luckily I scored two of them in that exact goal line where he was right there and I did it. He put me on his Instagram story, we follow each other now and I talk to him a little bit. He’s always been a big athlete I look at,” said Richardson.

“They were all at the house on Sunday, watching games, because they didn’t have a game to play because of the cancellation. They were all hanging out and they were like, ‘You can actually play,’ and I was like yeah, I’ve been trying to tell you that,” said Holgorsen.  

The Hawks look to impress against Fairmont senior this Friday.
