WVU quarterback Geno Smith isn't the only quarterback playing in the Mountain State that's receiving some national attention.

     Marshall quarterback Rakeem Cato is leading the entire county in passing yards with 12 hundred 22 yards in three games.


He's also number one in the nation in completions with 114...12 better than the second place ranking.

The sophomore's skills are getting better, but more importantly,he's maturing.

He threw a costly interception with a minute left on the Herd's final Drive vs. Ohio that sealed a Bobcats victory.


But it was how Cato acted after the game that made some news.


 Cato owned up to his mistake to reporters and handled the heartbreaking loss with class.
