High School: West Davidson HS
COACH DALE BARNES ON JOSH BUSH
On his performance last season
I go back to his sophomore year, the 5th game of the season, when tore his ACL. We're talking about a young man who was a potential football and baseball player at the collegiate level who made the decision (he and his family to put on a brace and play the rest of the year because he wanted to play with his teammates. This past year we moved him to QB, a position he had never played, and did great for us.
On the kind of player is Wake Forest getting?
I really like his work ethic and his intelligence. They've got a real family atmosphere at Wake Forest, and that's what Josh strives on. He loves competition, he's got great work habits on the field, off the field, and in the weight room.
Josh as a person/character?
His character is unbelievable. He's always done everything we've asked of him in four years. Josh has always put the team first and always wanted to see W. Davidson in the headlines, not himself.
DEACON CB SIGNEE JOSH BUSH
On his senior year and playing QB Quarterback it was fun, but I'd never played it before. Coach came and asked me and I told him I'd try it and see how it went.
On Wake Forest's season
I was talking to a bunch of guys on the team. They were saying it was the first year Coach Grobe had all his recruts in the program and it was going to be a special year.
What it means to get a full scholarship
Every since I was a kid I had that dream of playing on TV, so it's great.
On why he chose Wake Forest
It's pretty much a family. whenever I went there to visit, they treated me like family. I just liked the atmosphere, everything was nice.
On what he's doing during the off-season
Just work out and try to get better.
