Wheeling Park's Paige Wins Huff Award

Posted: Updated:

Wheeling Park High School senior inside linebacker Geremy Paige has been selected as the winner of the Huff Award, given out annually to the best defensive player in West Virginia, voted on by the West Virginia Sports Writers Association.

Paige is the first Patriot to win the award. He led the team with a whopping 156 tackles, 12 sacks, and a pair of fumble recoveries in the Patriots' run to the Class AAA state semifinals.

Paige is the first player from the OVAC to win the Huff Award since Brooke's Ryan Lazear in 2010, and Weir High's Zac Cooper in 2004.
