Worthy Performance

Darius Reynaud doesn't feel comfortable speaking with the media unless he believes his performance justifies an appearance.

Reynaud, who often turns down requests for interviews, isn't being arrogant when he does so. It's simply that he believes that he has to have played very well before he has anything of value to contribute to the media scrum covering the WVU football scene these days.

Reynaud is a much harsher critic of his play than most, because his appearances are infrequent. However, even he couldn't deny that his 126-yard, two touchdown performance in West Virginia's 48-23 win over Marshall was worthy of discussion.

Reynaud produced West Virginia's only first half score on a lightning fast post pattern that resulted in a 46-yard touchdown, then tied up the game on WVU's first possession of the second half with a twisting and turning run that turned a short reception into a 23-yard score.

Listen as the introverted WVU star discusses the first score, describes playing with Patrick White and Steve Slaton, and answers questions about being the "X-Factor" in the contest.
