Burgey lining up for Fairmont State
Eli Burgey, who Big Red coach Reno Saccoccia called “one of the best offensive linemen we’ve had in a good while,” signed his letter of intent Wednesday to continue his academic and football careers at Fairmont State. He is a two-time All-Eastern District first teamer. He earned third-team All-Ohio honors as a junior and was a second teamer in 2020. With Burgey, who plans to major in biology and pursue a career in medicine, are, front, from left, father Jason Burgey, brother Ben Burgey and mother Beth Burgey. Standing are Principal Ted Gorman, offensive coordinator JoJo Saccoccia, A.J. Forte (who coached Burgey in youth football), Gary Hostuttler (who also coached Burgey during his youth football days) and coach Saccoccia.
