WATCH: Kyzir and Ka’Raun White open up on love for West Virginia

West Virginia’s Kyzir and Ka’Raun White aren’t just outstanding football players.

They’re also outstanding people. The two brothers were profiled in the Big 12’s “Champions For Life” series, and both spoke about how much their time with the Mountaineers has helped them grow on and off the field.

Watch the full video here:

“West Virginia just felt like home,” Kyzir said. “I couldn’t picture myself anywhere else. Playing Division I football was a dream come true, and with me doing that and getting my degree — you can’t really beat that. So I’m real thankful.”

“It changed my life a lot,” Ka’Ruan said of playing for West Virginia. “Before this, I was at JUCO (at Lackawanna College), and before JUCO I was working at McDonald’s. So I just have to keep pushing and strive for greatness.”

The Mountaineers’ head coach, Dana Holgorsen, credited the Whites’ strong family background for molding the brothers into good people as well as good players. Their older brother, Kevin, also played for West Virginia and is now in the NFL.

The whole family clearly loves West Virginia. And with the production on the field the White brothers have given the Mountaineers, it’s a safe bet that West Virginia fans love them right back.
