Colton McKivitz has been making an impression this offseason.
In all honesty, McKivitz has made impressions since he first set foot in Morgantown. In four seasons with the Mountaineers, the redshirt senior has played in every single game for which he’s been eligible — but simply because he’s been there doesn’t mean he has his spot made in the shade.
For the second week in a row, WVU Football has announced that McKivitz is again a Workout Warrior, which adds to his list of honors from this offseason.
Redshirt junior tight end Logan Thimons and senior running back Martell Pettaway also received the Workout Warrior honors this week.
Pettaway has also carved himself out a roster spot over the years, playing in all of West Virginia’s 25 games over the last two seasons. He amassed 6 rushing touchdowns in 2018, the second-highest tally among Mountaineer running backs.
Thimons, a Sarver, Pennsylvania native, was brought on to the Mountaineers in 2016 as a defender. That all changed last spring, when he made the transition to the offensive side of the ball as a tight end/fullback, but he mostly contributed last season to the Mountaineers on special teams.
