Wahama’s all-time leading rusher is taking his explosive brand of football to the capital city. Kane Roush signed his letter of intent on February 5, to join the University of Charleston Golden Eagles next season. Roush is the all-time leading rusher for the White Falcons, compiling 4231 yards on 353 carries in his 53 game career. “It really means a lot to me,” said Roush. “I’m ready to show people that I’m ready to take it to the next level and show them what I can do.” Kane choose the Mountain East Conference team based on location, academics and the quality football program. The University of Charleston is the 19th ranked regional college in the south by the U.S. News and World Report and the Golden Eagles were 6-5 on the gridiron last season. “Kane is by far the best skill player I have coached in my 25 years,” Wahama head coach Dave Barr said. “I’ve said numerous times having Kane is like having lightning in a bottle because he’s a threat to score every time he touches the ball. It’s a good fit for him at Charleston, I’m happy for him and proud of him. In addition to being a top notch football player he is a top notch human being.” Kane found the endzone 88 times for the Red and White in his four seasons making him the school’s leader in career touchdowns. Roush was the defensive captain on the 2013 West Virginia Sports Writers Association All-State Class A team and was named MVP of the 2012 WVSSAC Class A state title game. Kane rushed for 170 yards and three touchdowns in that White Falcon victory, and added 73 yards receiving. Kane holds a 3.6 grade point average at Wahama and plans on majoring in business with a emphasis in marketing. Pictured above is in the front row, is Kane with his parents Paula and Kevin.
