17 Days 'till WCU Football Kickoff - #17 Anthony Badgett

Until we know officially that WCU will not play the non-conference games in the fall, we will continue with the countdown.

It's now 17 days until the kickoff of Catamount football on Thursday, September 3th, 2020 at 7 pm, against the Eastern Kentucky Colonels, in Roy Kid Stadium, Richmond, KY.

To help pass those long summer days, and hopefully get the Catamount faithful more excited about the upcoming season, and knowledgeable of the team members, we'll continue the football countdown each day until kickoff day.

Today, we'll highlight a defensive cornerback:
