Sowers, who hoped to make an impact on offense this year, instead found his special teams plays setting the tone for WVU's comeback. After the game, he spoke with BlueGoldNews.com concerning the hits, the comeback, and whether or not the crisp tackles presage a move to defense in 2007.
Sowers made his hits on two of West Virginia's third quarter kickoffs. The first limited the Yellow Jackets to an 11-yard return and put a fired-up Mountaineer defense on the field, which responded with a three-and-out series. The second, a blasting of Tech's Jamaaal Evans, punctuated WVU's third quarter rally and set off a big celebration on the field.
