J.D. Woods Greets Fans as a Pittsburgh Steeler


Former West Virginia receiver J.D. Woods entered Collectibles, Etc. in Cross Lanes sporting a Pittsburgh Steelers t-shirt. The fans he was poised to meet that day, though, were Mountaineer supporters through and through.

Woods just wrapped up mandatory mini camp with his new team in his effort to make the 53-man roster and took some time to go south in the Mountain State to see some of the fans who cheered for him in the five years he spent in Morgantown.

"It's an honor," said Woods. "As you know, the state of West Virginia is blue collar, I'm a blue collar worker as well. For them to take time out of their day to come and see me, a meet-and-greet, it's just a pleasure and it's an honor for me to be here."

WVU's third-leading receiver last season thrives in this sort of setting. He isn't one to shy away from sparking up a conversation with the people who come through the line for a picture or an autograph.

"I can give back to them now," Woods said. "I can actually see them, they can see me, I'm not in a helmet. For them to actually see my face and to put a smile on their face, it's a great feeling."
