MARTINSBURG, W.Va. — Martinsburg junior linebacker and running back Dewayne Grantham was a recent guest on the MetroNews ‘Statewide Sportsline,’ reflecting on his commitment to West Virginia.
“I’ve been coming (to Morgantown) for a long time and they’ve been showing me a lot of interest,” Grantham said. “Coach (Mark) Scott has been great to me through the recruiting process. Coach Holgorsen and Coach Gibson have treated me like family from the day they offered me.
“I’ve always wanted to play in front of my home state. I wanted to make sure my family and everyone else could come around, support me and be able to watch me at the next level,” Grantham said. “I thought that being a Mountaineer would be the best decision for me.”
As a junior this past season, Grantham was third on the team in tackles, finishing with 86 total tackles, a forced fumble and an interception. He had 12 tackles for loss. Offensively, Grantham led Martinsburg on the ground with 1,118 rushing yards and 23 touchdowns on 105 carries.
