MORGANTOWN, West Virginia — West Virginia University's Mountaineer mascot will get to serve another year.

Michael Garcia was chosen from among four finalists Tuesday night as the WVU mascot for the 2015-16 academic year. The senior political science major from Fairmont served for the past year.

Besides the musket and buckskins, the job comes with some other benefits. As the Mountaineer mascot, he's traveled across the country making hundreds of appearances and attending athletic events on and off campus.
