Fred Wyant, a four-year letterman at quarterback for the Mountaineers from 1952-55, led WVU in scoring, total offense and passing during his tenure. Wyant was 30-4 as a starter, and guided the Mountaineers to a berth in the 1954 Sugar Bowl. Wyant is the only quarterback to lead WVU to three straight wins against Penn State (1953-54-55) and earned Academic All-America honors three times. He was a third-round draft choice of the Washington Redskins in 1956, and played one season with that club and one season with the CFL’s Toronto Argonauts. Following his playing days, Wyant worked as a high school and small college football referee, then as a major college football referee, before becoming an official in the National Football League, where he served for 27 years. In addition to his officiating duties, Wyant has been in the insurance business for the past 37 years. He spent two seasons doing color commentary on WVU football broadcasts with current ESPN personality Tom Mees.
