There has been a lot of hype about high school football the past few weeks. So much so, we maybe forgot about DII college ball.
September 7, the DII season kicks off. Saturday West Virginia Wesleyan held it's annual media day.
There 12 Sports caught up with Bobcat freshman Wilson Harvey.
The Lewis County alum is one of 65 freshman rostered this fall.
"It's a blessing," said Harvey. "It's kind of like a job, but the great thing is your so passionate about it and it's something you love to do. Even when it gets tough, its just a game and you love it,"
Head coach George Shehl said the freshman have took a bit to come a long way since camp broke a few weeks ago, and a few including Harvey have caught his eye. Shehl commends Harvey for his intelligence and love for the game.
"He's exactly the kind of kid you want to bring in to West Virginia Wesleyan and he'll have a good year," said Shehl. "He loves the school, he's local, and he's a good player. I tell him all the time I feel like he's a senior, he's a true freshman but I feel like he's a fifth year senior. He's well beyond his years."
Harvey is even taking reps with the first string team.
"I think I've learned a lot of new things here. Lewis County prepared me so well. We as a team have been progressing. I think we're really coming together. I'm really excited to see what happens," said Harvey."
