Phillips Is a Hilltopper
Wheeling Park’s Nate Phillips signed his letter of intent to continue his academic and football careers at West Liberty University. “It’s been a great four years at Wheeling Park,” Phillips said. “I’ve made a lot of memories and played under some great coaches. I like the campus at West Liberty, the coaches and I think the offense they run fits me pretty well. Being at a place close to home with my brother and best friends from high school also factored in a lot.” Phillips collected 44 receptions for 667 yards as a senior with five offensive touchdowns, seven interceptions and 47 tackles on his way to earning an first team all-state selection.
