MORGANTOWN, W.Va. — West Virginia wide receiver David Sills is returning for his senior season in 2018.

The Mountaineers announced in a statement Monday that Sills is coming back, keeping West Virginia's dynamic pass-and-catch combination intact for another year. Quarterback Will Grier announced last week that he will return.

Sills had 60 catches for 980 yards and a nation-leading 18 touchdowns in the regular season. He was a finalist for the Biletnikoff Award and was named an Associated Press honorable mention all-American.

Sills said, “WVU holds a special place in my heart, and I am looking forward to seeing what this team can accomplish next year.”

West Virginia (7-5) plays Utah (6-6) on Dec. 26 in the Heart of Dallas Bowl.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
