Moving Up

Timber Creek High School came to West Virginia's 7-on-7 camp with clear intentions of winning the event, and it was that exuberance (along with some serious talent) that allowed the school to walk away with both spots in the final game as well as the championship. Quarterback Myles Nash, who led one of the squads to the win, came away with even more following the successful day.

"We had a lot of fun," said Myles Nash, whose Timber Creek "B" team rolled to seven consecutive wins and the title. "We came in with the intention of winning and meeting our other team for the championship, and that's what we did. We felt we were the best team going in. We are defending state champs, and we want to go back-to-back, so we felt like we could win this too."

Nash's team was a bit loaded, with fellow Division I recruits Dajaun Drennon and Zaire Williams alongside, but he noted that the opposing Timber Creek team was good too, as it included a number of starters such as Eric Church, who also has scholarship offers. Still, the "B" team trio was too much to overcome.

The performance by the school made for a happy ride home. Several of Nash's teammates could be heard celebrating and having fun as he conducted an interview, but the victory wasn't the only reason Nash was happy. He noted that he had an excellent visit around the competition, and that WVU made it clear that he could compete at any position if he committed to the school. While he wasn't quite ready to make that call, he was clear that West Virginia has moved up even higher on his consideration list.

"I am looking at all my offers, but this puts West Virginia even higher, and they were already up there," an enthusiastic Nash noted. "I'm going to play both outside linebacker and quarterback this year, and I don't know where I'll wind up playing [in college], but West Virginia is way up there."
