Wheeling Native a Finalist to Become Next WVU Mountaineer Mascot

Posted: Updated:

The search is on for the next WVU Mountaineer mascot, and Wheeling has a chance to represent with native Donnie Platt.

Platt is a first-year graduate student in athletic coaching education, and is also a Wheeling Park High School and West Liberty University graduate. Four finalists will vie to replace the current mascot on Saturday during the men's basketball game at the Coliseum.

Each finalist will interact with the crowd and work to impress the selection committee stationed throughout the arena.
