Tom Alward
Tom Alward
Coach Tom Alward is one of the four cornerstones of Goodrich Athletics as he has been coaching at Goodrich for over 32 years. Not many programs still have a coach who has dedicated so much of his time and energy for so long but Coach Alward does it because he loves the kids. Coach Alward has been coaching for a total of 47 years, with his coaching career started at Flint Central becoming their Head JV coach then at his alma mater Burton Bendle. Coach Alward has not only been dedicated to Goodrich for almost 32 years, but he was a dedicated sales rep for Jostens for 35 years. Coach Alward is married to his high school sweetheart Darlene, they have two children Trevor and Jennifer. In Coach Alwards  free time he enjoys watching the Detroit Tigers, golf, and of course spending time with his 6 grandchildren (Collin, Emma, Luke, Delaney, Neely, and Grady). A little something interesting about Coach Alward is he is a graduate of The University of Nebraska where he played on a National Championship team. Coach Alward was also drafted in the National Football League (NFL) to the NY Jets. He later signed with the Tampa Bay Buccaners. Coach Alward was the first player to ever sign a NFL Contract with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Source: https://goodrichfootball.com/coaching-staff

Greg White
A little bit about Greg White: I am excited to be in Elkins, working in a great community with this fantastic radio station.  I started in radio in 1983, as a high school kid.  I have been part-time, and full-time, in radio since that year.  I’ve worked in Beckley, Mount Hope, Oak Hill, and Charleston.  There’s really nothing in radio I haven’t done.  As much as I enjoy playing music, my absolute favorite thing in radio is Play by Play.  I’ve been doing High School and College football and basketball play by play since 1990.  As part of a team in Charleston, we won the “Best Play by Play Broadcast” award 6 years in a row… and I won the individual “Best Play By Play Announcer” a few years ago.  I’ve done high school sports in Beckley, Shady Spring, Charleston, and most recently, Tygarts Valley.  For two years, I was the play by play guy for WV State University, and am part of the MetroNews Sports Team for the annual Mountain East Conference Basketball Tournament. I am also honored to be a Retired Senior Master Sergeant from the US Air Force, with nearly 28 years of service.  I served part time for a few years and ended my career an active duty capacity with the WV Air National Guard.  I was fortunate to maintain my part-time radio career during my military service, and am proud to have served this state and country. I have been married to my amazing wife, Diana, since 2019. We are die-hard WVU Mountaineer football and basketball fans, and I’ve been a fan of the New England Patriots since 1975.  So you’ll find us watching sports in the fall and winter… and spending our summers out by the firepit. I’ve lived most of my life in Fayette County, but moved to this area about a year ago… and am loving every minute of it.  It’s beautiful here and the people are some of the nicest I’ve ever met.  I will be here every weekday morning from 6am until 10am… and will even visit with you on the weekends… playing Elkins Greatest Hits on 94.7 WELK.

Embracing the Struggle with Justin Bowers
Embracing the Struggle with Justin Bowers
BUCKHANNON, West Virginia – West Virginia Wesleyan College’s new director of career services and experiential learning discovered his own passion in helping students navigate their next steps. Dr. Justin Bowers recently came to the College from Upshur County Schools. “For a long time, I have wanted to connect to higher education,” he said. “I was teaching at the high school last year. I loved the opportunity to teach, but really got passionate about helping upperclassmen think about next steps – whether that was higher education, employment or enlisting in the military – that was the most fun I had. “When I saw the position of director of career services and experiential learning was open, I felt like it was a great fit. Being a community member, I have floated around the outskirts of West Virginia Wesleyan College, but to be a part of this community in this role is really, really exciting to me.” The Office of Career Services and Experiential Learning has also moved. Students will find Bowers on the second floor of the Benedum Campus Center in the Student Development suite  when they return in August. “My primary roles are going to be networking to make sure we have strong internships and experiential learning opportunities for students,” Bowers said. “I will also be developing career services to help students with building effective resumes and cover letters, interview skills, finding the right job or grad school after college.” Bowers views his office as a campus resource center for students as they look at their next professional steps. “Everybody comes to college thinking about what they are excited to learn, what they are passionate about, what career they want to pursue,” he said. “I think having a resource with very practical steps they can take to move toward their goals is very helpful.” Bowers grew up in Buckhannon and moved back in 2012. He earned a Ph.D.  in organizational leadership and has spent the last 10 years pastoring a church locally and working in the school system while building a business for leadership developing and coaching and consulting. He and his wife, Carrie, have four daughters. Source: https://www.wvwc.edu/news/new-west-virginia-wesleyan-college-career-services-director-ready-to-assist-students/ Thank you for listening!

Josh Lewis
Josh Lewis
Here is Josh's bio from WCHS: Hi there!! I cannot tell you how happy I am to be here at WCHS/WVAH! To cover sports for a living has to be one of the greatest jobs in the world. Like every other kid growing up, I wanted to be a pro football or baseball player. You know, the next Bo Jackson. But I soon found out I wasn't big enough, strong enough or fast enough. You don't have to be Mel Kiper, Jr. to figure out that's not your meal-ticket. So what's the next best thing? Without question-- what I do now. I love West Virginia and now consider it my home, but I am not a native of the Mountain State. The frozen tundra known as Minnesota is where I am from. Prior to moving to West Virginia, I worked in Minneapolis as a production assistant at WCCO TV. I am a big Vikings fan, as well as every other Minnesota sports team, and part of my duties included covering Vikings practices. The first person I'd ever met from West Virginia was the Valley's very own, Randy Moss. I came to West Virginia in the fall of 2000. My first on-air TV job came at WVVA TV in Bluefield where I served as the Sports Director for two years. The primary objective at WVVA in Southern West Virginia is the same as the number goal here at TV 8 in Charleston-- LOCAL SPORTS. It's hard to pick a favorite time of the year. March is great-- I love tournament time.. but fall is also a wonderful time of the year with the high school football and college football seasons starting. What I also love about my job is all the great people I get to meet. I am truly blessed to have been introduced to some of the folks in this state the past few years. I also love getting feedback, so drop me a line at jolewis@sbgtv.com if there's something on your mind!! Take Care!

Martin is a special teams coach at Riverbend High School in Fredericksburg, Virginia, where he works with place-kickers, punters, and kick-off specialists. He's also the author of the forthcoming book, 30 Days with America's High School Coaches. Through interviews with coaches across the nation in a dozen high-school varsity sports, this book peels back the many ways that coaches shape the characters, work ethics, and morals of the young men and women they’re charged to work with in five key areas: 1) How coaches relate to their players. 2) How coaches approach their craft. 3) How coaches build programs. 4) How coaches improve themselves. 5) How coaches affect their communities. Learn more about the book and when it will be available for purchase here. An excerpt of the book is running July 27 in Read the Spirit magazine. Read all my writing for RTS at www.readthespirit.com.
