West Liberty Hilltoppers Kicker, Punter & Snapper News


September 5, 2015 - Christian Morris kicks game winner over Concord
"Freshman kicker Christian Morris drilled a 33-yard field goal with 16 seconds remaining Saturday afternoon to lift West Liberty past No. 9-ranked Concord, 29-28, in a thrilling Mountain East Conference opener at West Family Stadium.... Two running plays lost four yards but kept the clock moving. After an incompletion in the end zone, Waialae sent Morris onto the field to attempt the 33-yard game-winner. The snap and hold were true." - Weirton Daily Times 

September 13, 2014 - kicker Josh Wilson hits game winner over Glenville State
"Josh Wilson kicked a 43-yard field goal to start the second overtime period and the West Liberty defense forced a game-ending fumble on Glenville State's ensuing possession as the Hilltoppers stunned the Pioneers, 27-24, in a double-overtime thriller on Saturday at Morris Stadium. West Liberty (1-1, 1-1) had rallied from a 24-14 deficit in the final 2:03 of regulation, forcing the game into overtime with a 46-yard "Hail Mary" TD pass from Dakota Conwell to Dylan Potts as time expired. Both teams missed field goal attempts in the first overtime period and WLU couldn't move the sticks on the first possession of the second overtime. That's when Wilson, who had nailed a 31-yarder with 2:03 left in regulation to start the Black and Gold comeback, drilled a line drive between the pipes from 43 yards out to give West Liberty its first lead." - Hilltoppers
