Trevor Kiess has adorned the buckskins before, not only in the practice session during this year’s basketball game against TCU. He had to do that the past few years as he actually auditioned to be the Mountaineer prior to this year.
He was chosen as the back up Mountaineer to Troy Clemons and even led the team onto the field during a football game in 2017. Kiess got that chance when Clemons was arrested for DUI in the week leading up to the game.
Kiess knows what the job entails not just because he is a lifelong WVU sports fan, but also because he has been in the Mountaineer’s shoes already.
