Who would make someone jump into their car for a nearly three-hour round trip drive from Clay County to Charleston on an early Saturday morning?

"Super Steve is what I call him,'' said Desi Facemire, who made the 80-minute one-way trek from Dille near Summersville to SportMart in Charleston to get several autographs from former West Virginia University running back Steve Slaton.

Slaton, who now plays for the NFL's Houston Texans, signed various items and posed for pictures for two hours, greeting nearly 200 fans from the Kanawha Valley and outlying areas.

Overall good read but the Texans were not 8-8 this season.
