Dan Monteroso thrives at 2 sports at Western Liberty after transfer from Purdue

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on February 1, 2017 at 12:42 am Contact Billy: | @Wheyen3 In the West Liberty men’s basketball season opener Nov. 11, starting guard Dan Monteroso scored 11 points on 5-of-6 shooting. The next day, he ran pass routes and punted for WLU’s football team, hauling in eight passes for 145 yards and two touchdowns. That night, Monteroso stared again on the hardwood and scored 16 points.Three games, two days, two sports.“It was a tough weekend,” Monteroso said, “But I’m happy I did it. It’s something I can say, tell my kids when I’m older.”Monteroso used to be a wide receiver and special teams player at Purdue. But after getting limited playing time — he caught only three passes across his three seasons there and hardly played on special teams — he transferred. Last spring, Monteroso completed 21 credits to graduate from Purdue in three years and take his eligibility elsewhere.Monteroso grew up in Saint Clairsville, Ohio, a short drive from Wheeling, West Virginia, the home of West Liberty University.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textBoth of Monteroso’s parents work at West Liberty. His father, Jeff Monteroso, is the defensive coordinator for the football team, and his mother, Cathy Monteroso, teaches in WLU’s College of Education.Throughout his youth and into high school, Monteroso attended basketball camps and played high school games hosted by West Liberty. After receiving only one scholarship offer coming out of high school, Monteroso left the sport for football. After leaving Purdue, Monteroso hoped to revitalize his basketball career, but he couldn’t garner any interest because he hadn’t played organized basketball in three years.The only coach who wanted him was the head coach at West Liberty, Jim Crutchfield, who had seen Monteroso develop. West Liberty gave him a familiar setting to turn back the clock and be a basketball player again.“(When he went to Purdue) I kind of thought he’s got some basketball ability,” Crutchfield said. “I thought it’d be a shame if he never played basketball again.”Jeff Monteroso said last summer was solely filled with basketball workouts for Monteroso. The plan, Jeff said, was for Monteroso to play only basketball at West Liberty. About a week before football preseason-camp began, he changed his tune.Courtesy of West Liberty AthleticsWhen the two sat with WLU head football coach, Roger Waialae, the coach jumped at the opportunity to add a player with the experience and ability of Monteroso. He put up big numbers, catching 14 touchdowns, and used his experience to take less-experienced players under his wing.“He was helping some of the younger kids,” Jeff Monteroso said. “They would listen to him. He would give them advice.”West Liberty’s basketball team is glad to have him, too. The Hilltoppers are 19-1 and Monteroso averages a team-high 18.3 points per game. West Liberty ranks No. 3 in NCAA Division II.Based upon NCAA eligibility rules, Monteroso’s football career concluded this fall. His time as a basketball player will continue for one more season beyond this one.Monteroso has pursued his master’s degree with a focus on coaching education — he’s always wanted to be a college football coach — while playing two sports near his hometown.“It was nice to kind of come back home,” Monteroso said. “It kind of was just a perfect fit.” Commentslast_img read more

Crusaders of the Stage to present Midsummer/Jersey this weekend

first_imgby Tracy McCue, Sumner Newscow — The Wellington Crusaders of the Stage is presenting Ken Ludwig’s Midsummer/Jersey on March 14, 15 and 16 at the Wellington High School auditorium.“After having seen Midsummer Night’s Dream this summer, an idea sparkled in the back of my mind,” said director Dorthea Kelly. “But could my students handle Shakespeare? When I spoke to the students they were all for it.”But this Shakespeare has a wrinkle – it has a Jersey Shore aspect. So this is a Shakespeare play with an updated appeal for wide audiences.On Friday, a cast of 27 WHS students will be participating in a five-act play. Friday and Saturday’s play begins at 7 p.m. and the Sunday at 2 p.m. The price of tickets for seniors and students are $4 in advance and $6 at the door and for adults: $5 in advance and $8 at the door.The play is a barrel of laughs as fairies and mortals mix it up in a love circle of conflict.The cast list is as follows:Rufus Dicarlo- Mitchell McGuireJustine Dicarlo – Raven BlackbullHipopolyta- Tori WingerChris Athens-Julian CornejoPhyllis Trait- Holly MayMia Dicarlo- Meghan McCartyLyle Fagioli– William HornHelene– Alyssa JacksonDenis– Jonah WardTerri Thumbs– Hanna EvansJanet Snug– Kailyn PattersonFranci Flute– Ashlyn AreballoPatti Quince-  Baylee PacchelliNikki Bottom– Avery ChaneyRoberts Sudds– Shane HughesOberon– Adam HradilTitania– Brooke TracyRobin Goodfellow(Puck)- Avaunghtai ClarkMoonbeam– Tatum HaskinSunflower– Mackinxe TracySunshine– Alicia SeyfertTurtle– Ariel FurgusonPeaseblossom– HollyMustardSeed– Caitlyn McdonaldPatrick Platt-J.J.
