Ruoff said he recently wrapped up his fourth season playing professionally in Belgium. In addition, he was drafted in the second round of the 2012 NBA Development Draft and played for the Canton Charge and Iowa Energy.
"Hopefully my agent gets me another job," Ruoff said. "I'll train in Morgantown this summer and wait, hope. I think I'll get a call. Things have been going well in Belgium."
You might also have scratched your head a bit. Three players from one team? If you're really attentive, and checked the rosters, you've seen Martinsburg and Morgantown also have three players apiece participating. Wasn't there a two-player limit in the past?
"Yes, but it changed," said game director Bob Mullett. "Bluntly, I'm against it because I like to spread the offers out. But sometimes you have schools like Martinsburg with great athletes and you want them there.
"Division I players automatically get invited. Then I think South Charleston was so good a couple years back that we changed the rule to allow three kids from two schools. Now it's three from three.
"We will, though, revisit the rule when our coaches meet at the Super Six."
Mullett said no injuries have been reported this week, but Brooke High fullback/linebacker Raleigh Mason had to leave because of personal reasons.
A couple tidbits I simply didn't know how else to use.
First, Mullett said the first woman - Rep. Shelley Moore Capito - would handle the coin flip for the North-South football all-star game.
And second, I spoke to former WVU basketball guard and current Glenville State assistant coach Joe Mazzulla the other day. I was trying to remember Mazzulla's uniform number and guessed it to be either 5 or 21.
"It was 3 and 21," Mazzulla said, before explaining that Darris Nichols had his preferred No. 21 upon arriving in Morgantown.
When Nichols left WVU, Mazzulla went back to 21.
But why No. 3 in the interim?
"Because 2 plus 1 equals 3," Mazzulla said.
Sometimes life can be so simple.
