THE SHOTGUN THROWDOWN: Mountaineers earn Preseason All-Big 12 honors

Welcome, By-Godders, to The Shotgun Throwdown, WVU’s best place for sports links, information, sophomoric humor, and daily distractions.


Baseball season starts in February for West Virginia and two Mountaineers have been selected on the Preseason All-Big 12 Team. Austin Davis is senior outfielder from Orlando, Florida. Davis was an All-Big 12 Honorable Mention selection last season after leading WVU with a .320 batting average. Jacob Watters is a junior pitcher from just across the state border in Bland County, Virginia. Watters, a right-handed reliever, was named to the Stopper of the Year Midseason Watch List by the National College Baseball Writers Association last season.
