Will Grier to David Sills was a common saying in the Mountaineers potent offense, but what about the place they play in?  Milan Puskar was a man who sought to provide medicine to rural West Virginia, so in 1961, he co-founded Mylan, which is a strong company still running today.  After donating, in 2004, Mountaineer Field was renamed as we know it today, Milan Puskar Stadium.  One of the main additions after Puskar’s donation was an enormous video scoreboard.  What is unique about the arena is the great viewpoint for the fan, and the large fields around the park where children can be seen playing in.  There is special seating near the North gate called Touchdown Terrace and club seating at the higher points of the stadium.  There is the mountaineer mascot who uniquely does push-ups for the amount of points scored by them.  It was a great experience to go to this stadium which can be thanks to Milan Puskar.   As seen in the photos, the crowd is always vibrant and ready to run onto the field with every Mountaineer win.
