If there’s anybody who can handle this minor position change it’s Dylan Tonkery. The sophomore from Clarksburg learned a lot from hi brother, Wes, who led by his own example with the WVU football team nearly a decade ago.
The younger Tonkery will now be a MIKE linebacker. Last season, Tonkery had 15 toal tackles and 3.5 tackles for a loss. He redshirted two years ago and has his best years of football ahead of him.
Tonkery is 6-foot, 225 pounds and still adding onto that strong frame. With a little more speed, Tonkery will soon be in a perfect position to make big-time plays.
