Senior Day Catching Up With WVU

Senior Day is fast approaching for many West Virginia players, but their final game at Mountaineer Field will not distract them from prepping for Kansas State.

Michael Molinari said that the past four years have held a special place in his heart, and his last game is going to be a special one at Milan Puskar Stadium. The specialist has done a lot for WVU the past few years, and he has taken duties as a holder and kickoff man seriously through his time with the Mountaineers.

Growing up in West Virginia and playing for the institution was a big deal to Wes Tonkery. Born and raised in Shinnston, W. Va., Tonkery watched WVU growing up, but now as a senior said he isn't quite ready to go just yet. The linebacker mentioned that everything will become surreal come Thursday morning, but he will be ready to go for Kansas State.

Kansas State is disciplined and has a companionship like no other, said Quinton Spain. The senior said it is tough to beat a team that is as talented and taught well as a team like the Wildcats. But for the offensive lineman, who has played more than 900 snaps this season, the biggest story line for Thursday will be that it is his last game as a Mountaineer.
