While he has never been the most popular player on the field, WVU’s Jarret Doege has had a solid and productive career for the Mountaineers. Though there have been struggles on the offensive side of the ball, he has found way to add stats and make his name in the box score a little bit better.
Today, we are going to take a look at Doege’s statistics during his time at WVU (two seasons at Bowling Green excluded) and give our honest opinion about how the signal-caller has done in that field. Despite what many fans believe, it has not all been bad for the Lubbock, Texas native in the Old Gold and Blue.
- Completion Percentage – 64.7%
This has easily been the most consistent part of Doege’s play. During his three seasons with the Mountaineers, he has finished with 65.8%, 63.9% and 65.2%. It hasn’t been the absolute best it could be, but he also hasn’t struggled to find receivers on a regular basis.
- Passing yards – 6,143 yards
With a 290 yards and three touchdowns performance last week against the Texas Longhorns, Doege passed all-time great Pat White for 5th on the all-time passing yards list at WVU. That’s pretty damn impressive if you ask me…especially for a player that has taken as much heat as Doege. Should he come back for one last season in 2022, he could make his way even further up the list, passing the likes of Skyler Howard and Will Grier in the process.
- Touchdown passes – 37
Not too shabby, but could be better. So far at WVU, his season high for touchdown passes is 16 (a feat he has accomplished this season). It’s not horrible, but Doege has started 24 games for the Mountaineers and played in 25. He hasn’t necessarily lit the scoreboard up with his arm.
- Interceptions – 17
During his first two seasons, Doege only threw 7 total interceptions. However, this year he has tossed 10. If you take the 2021 season out of the equation, this has been the one area he has exceled at.
