During his remarks, Brown said that his football program “has some things planned out.” It will be great to see what WVU came up with to show support for Alex Miller, his family and Roane County.
One great way to pay tribute to Alex Miller would be to have every player on a team wear a #80 patch on their jersey. Put the patch below their left shoulder, close to the heart to signify that this young man is in the hearts of everyone on the West Virginia football team as well as the state of West Virginia.
