Owen Schmitt

I'm a cheap bastard! Well, it's true. Perhaps when a little more dough starts coming my way, I'll get ESPN Insider. It would probably be worth it just to read Bruce Feldman. Speaking of which, he has a piece up on Owen Schmitt that looks to be pretty good. Anything that talks about...

He also has become a genuine folk hero around West Virginia with fans, who have snatched up his No. 35 jersey and T-shirts that scream "How Do You Like That Schmitt!"

It's great for Owen to get some recognition! He really came from nowhere to take the starting fullback position last year. Definitely one of the kids that developed right after highschool. I guess everyone got their first look at Owen at last years spring game. The thing about him is that he isn't getting the ball 20-30 times a game, probably closer to 5 times a game. But when he does get it, it is always something great! Being that he is probably the third or fourth option on offense he isn't too high on the threat board of opposing teams. When he doesn't have the ball, he is a fullback's fullback!He can be a devastating lead blocker.

Anyhow, he's #8 and #6 on here. Hope you like Queen, I do. Stick around for #1. I don't know who that guy was for UConn, but Pat White hits him so hard, it changes his last name on the back of his jersey! Credit to Psycho, enjoy.

Surprised the fake punt's not on there. Unless it's not being counted as an offensive play.

I think when I went to YouTube, it said top 10 before the bowl. Otherwise, I think they would have shown that long run that Owen had in that game.

owen is awsome. im from fairfax va, and owen went to my high school, and dated my cousin. i know him personally, and he is a great guy. one thing though. he didnt develop after high school, because he was one of the virginia state rushing leaders for a team that was atrocious. he got turned down by maryland and vt, and maybe wvu first time around, but not quite sure on the last one. sorry but im a hokie fan, and im dissapointed that he got away, but i really am a mountaineer fan now that owens there and we dont play anymore. sorry this was sooo long
