MORGANTOWN — oooooo
Former Mountaineer fullback Owen Schmitt, known in his playing days as “The Runaway Beer Truck,” is making use of that name again.
A fullback on the 2005-07 teams who became something of a folk hero before playing in the NFL, he is going to open a Morgantown restaurant and bar that will feature music.
The site, when the bar is opened, will be at 245 Cheat Road, and will be made into a country style establishment. “I still don’t believe this is really happening,” Schmitt said in a statement. “I couldn’t be more stoked. I get to combine all my loves into one place that I will call home — music, food, sports and the state of West Virginia.”
