MORGANTOWN, W.Va. — Country Roads Trust, the Name, Image and Likeness leader for West Virginia University student-athletes, will produce a weekly Climbing the Mountain video podcast beginning March 24.
Country Roads Trust Director of Social Engagement Amanda Mazey and former WVU offensive lineman Dale Wolfley will host the podcasts, which will run through the Mountaineer spring football drills.
“We’re excited to provide such lively content to Mountaineer fans everywhere,” said Country Roads Trust COO Stephen Ford.
“Amanda and Dale will interview coaches and players and keep us up-to-date on Mountaineer developments.”
