Not only do the West Virginia Mountaineers have a male baton twirler, they have a bad-ass male baton twirler. Meet Donovan Sarr, introduced to us by this WVU press release touting their evidently awesome baton twirling squad.

Sarr, a junior psychology major at WVU, became Senior Men's Two-Baton Champion in April 2006, when he traveled to Eindhoven, Holland, to compete on the U.S. World Team. A 2004 Mount Gilead (Ohio) High School graduate, he has also earned numerous Ohio State and Great Lakes regional titles in solo, two-baton, three-baton and rhythmic twirl.

Moreover, Sarr was the 2004 Men's National Twirling Champion and the 2006 Men's Collegiate Twirling Champion.
