But what happens to his former teammates at his other school??? They assumed they were having a chance of a lifetime to play with a great PG, but now he is gone and they will be below average.
Sounds like a great opportunity for them to get better....why would a team mate assume anything about another player carrying them ? If they are below average because a player leaves, that's on the coach and the team to correct, not the player leaving.
WV was full of transfers in in the past. They get more than their fair share. But, why wouldn't they. The location is ideal. They pick up kids from Grant, Boone, Ryle, Connor and Kenton. They have had kids from Gallatin and Williamstown. WV offers a kid a chance to be a big fish in a small pond, academics are great, and you are almost in Florence. There football team is full of move ins. I'm not complaining or calling them out, they have a lot to offer.
I'm not sure how far back your talking about (not arguing) but the last several years have all been kids that live in district or have went to WV most of their lives. Also there was a time period that many of the players all transferred to other schools and they had some trying years. Definitely got talent and a little luck on their side. Stanley is the only one that I can think of in many years. Good luck to this group of guys and coaching staff. Will be anxious to see you guys play.
