Another Double Dip of Awards
King (Damascus, Md.) garners defensive accolades for the second time in three weeks after West Virginia's 35-28 win at Boston College. The senior safety had two interceptions for 12 yards, the second time this year he has had two pickoffs in a game. He also recorded eight tackles (seven solo), with two pass break-ups. King has five interceptions in his last three games. He is the 16th player in WVU history to have at least five in a season and also has a school-record 46 pass deflections in his career.
