There's not a huge lump of people spread on the land of hills and mountains. So, for a big league justification, a population would have to be gathered and it likely couldn't be a weekday or few. As a West Virginian, you're salivating for pro football, right?
Maybe you know that your best best at a weekly venue would be Major League Soccer, right?
I think a brand called the "Bootleggers" would draw in some esprit de corp. Mountain State Bootleggers or WV Bootleggers (Bootleggers W.V. or Mountain Divided).
A team could play in a few spots. Spreading the map more, you could do time in Hampton Roads and Charleston as a Virginia Divided named team. Or something.

If you shared time, camping some "home" games in Nashville or Charlotte under an Appalachian moniker, I bet you would have some fun. The Appalachian Bootleggers? Appalachia United?
