Earlier we published the names of the home-grown players who are on the WVU football roster. This weekend Coach Holgorsen published the first depth-chart for the 2016 season. I could not help but notice that about third of the home-growns are helping lead the way into this season.
Here is the list with their WV hometown:
- Starting at FB: #28 Elijah Wellman – Huntington
- Starting TE: #87 Stone Wolfley – Morgantown
- Back-up TE: #88 Trevon Wesco – Gerrardstown
- Back-up DE: #92 Jon Lewis – Morgantown
- Starting SAM LB: #30 Justin Arndt – Martinsburg
- Back-up SPUR LB: #26 Deamonte Lindsay – Martinsburg
- Starting Kicker: #48 Mike Molina – Hurricane
- Starting Punter: #15 Billy Kinney – Morgantown
- Starting Long Snapper (LS): #46 Nick Meadows – Williamstown
- Starting Holder (H) for Mike Molina: Billy Kinney
- Starting KO: Mike Molina with Billey Kinney as his back-up
I love seeing home-grown players as starters and back-ups on WVU’s roster. I wish each of these young men the best, and hope that each has a whale of a season!!!
