MORGANTOWN, W.Va.–Trevon Wesco has been sporadically used in West Virginia’s offense since he joined th
And he is ready for the task at hand.
“I definitely have more confidence than I had in the past because I’m used to the program now,” Wesco said.
With the new changes to WVU’s offense, the Martinsburg, W.Va. native is preparing to emerge in his final season in Morgantown. If spring foreshadows what the fall holds, Wesco could be the difference.
“When you realize it’s your last year, you want to do all you can do to play the best you can play,” he said. “I guess being my last year and all, I really wanted to win and I’d say set a stage for the program and stuff like that.”
With fall up approaching, the 6-foot-4, 270-pound tight end is physically prepared for his final go.
“I am by far in the best shape of my life,” he said. “That’s for a fact.”
Mike Barwis and the strength staff helped Wesco find the form he needed.
“They got me right,” he added. “I’d say that and being here for a long period of time, you get better as time goes on.”
Wesco will be a jack of all trades this season for the Mountaineers.
“I’m catching the ball more than I used to so I’d say that,” he said. “I’m playing fullback. I didn’t really do that in the past. I’m doing more what Eli (Wellman) did.”
Currently, the fullback position is rebuilding and their are several tight ends in the mix. However, with Wesco being the veteran, he’s the one everyone is turning to at both positions.
“I think he has a different mindset,” quarterback Will Grier said. “He had a really impressive spring. He busted it in the weight room. He does a good job. He’s a really strong guy. He just gets after it. I really like where he is at. He’s a really talented guy. I didn’t realize how talented he really was. He had a really, really impressive spring. I think we are all excited about his potential and what he can do.”
The new found relationship between Grier and Wesco will hopefully benefit WVU’s offense.
“I trust Will,” Wesco said. “He trusts me. We’re building as time goes on. Everybody is building as time goes on. The summer is a good time to do it.”
