Clarksburg Celebrates Coyotes Slated to Play in College
Last week Clarksburg High School held a collegiate signing ceremony for five members of the football team who will be playing at the next level.
The players, seniors Bryant Evans, Tim Lehr, Elijah Maith, Tyler Wilder, and Justice Williams will all play in college, but Coyote’s Head Coach Bob Plante said each earned the right to play based on their grades rather than football ability.
“They are all great students, and they are all great character kids,” said Plante, who finished his first season as head coach at Clarksburg. “That is why they are going to the next level; they are good people who play football. Each one of these kids has a great story. They are all good people. I can’t emphasize enough they are all just great students. If you are a decent coach, and you have a great student that plays ball, you can probably get him places. My job was easy.”
