The West Virginia Mountaineers have launched a Heisman Trophy campaign for quarterback Will Grier.

The Grier7heisman.com website was launched earlier this week.

In the 2017 season, Grier was one of the top quarterbacks in all of college football, passing for 3,490 yards and 34 touchdowns in an injury-shortened season. In 2017, he completed 64.4 percent of his passes and threw just 12 interceptions. Grier was 20th in the nation in passing yards (3,490), eighth in the nation in passing touchdowns (34), fifth in passing efficiency (162.7), and eighth in passing yards per game (317.3).

In December, Grier became a 2018 Heisman favorite when he and All-American wide reciever David Sills V announced they would be returning for their senior seasons.

With the start of the 2018 college football season less than eight weeks away, several outlets, including NFL.com, Sports Illustrated, and SB Nation list Grier as one of the favorites to win the Heisman Trophy in December.

Grier and the Mountaineers will begin their 2018 campaign on Sept. 1 against the Tennessee Volunteers at Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte.
