Countdown To The Draft
April 29 2021 08:00 pm

The West Virginia Roughriders will have a little more of the Old Gold and Blue on their squad this season.

Since the announcement of their relocation to Wheeling, the Roughriders have added some names that would jog the memory of Mountaineer fans and football fans alike. Today, another Mountaineer was added to the squad.

Former WVU quarterback Jarrett Brown was announced by the Roughriders on Thursday, adding his name to the roster along fellow Mountaineer Noel Devine and Super Bowl champion Robert Meachem.

“Jarrett has all of the physical tools and attributes to excel at this level,” said Andrew Germann, the Roughriders’ player personnel director. “He’s been successful at what he does at the various levels of football and [team Owner/GM] Gregg [Fornario] and I are very excited to have him in a Roughrider uniform.”

Brown started for the Mountaineers under Bill Stewart in 2009, after the graduation of Pat White. He led the team to a 9-4 record, including a bid to the Gator Bowl against Florida State. He is also currently ranked 18th in the school’s record book for passing yards in a season, with 2,484, and 11th for pass completions in a season with 220.

“We are happy to have a QB who not only played for the Mountaineers but also on other professional stages of football, such as the NFL, CFL, and of course, the AFL,” said Fornario. “We are honored to provide the opportunity to certain athletes, such as Jarrett Brown, to perform once again in front of the very fans that supported them from the start here in the Ohio Valley.”
