Next week, West Virginia turns 144 years old. But, it's the 100th birthday that Chuck Kinder from the Kanawha Valley will never forget.

That's the year (1963) that he was tapped to wear the #100 for the Mountaineers to honor the state's birthday. He was the team's place kicker.

It's the only time it's ever been worn and it's a story that Chuck has loved to tell for years.
