Fofana Earns Nickolich Award

Fullback Moe Fofana is the recipient of this years Tommy Nickolich Award, which is presented each spring by the Blue & Gold News to a deserving walk-on athlete in the Mountaineer Football Program.

Fofana, a 5-10, 245 pound junior from Silver Spring, Maryland, has earned the starting fullback position due to his outstanding work ethic and perseverance.

He scored a touchdown in Saturday's spring ending Gold-Blue scrimmage, and figures to have an increased role in this season's offense.

The Nickolich trophy is presented annually to a walk-on player who has distinguished himself through attitude and work ethic.

It was established in 1991 as a memorial to Tom Nickolich, a former WVU walk-on player who died of cancer in 1983.
