Kellam’s (Virginia Beach, VA) season may have come to an end with a loss last week to Salem. While Greg Nosal is certainly not happy that the season is over, the 6-7, 265-pound Virginia Tech recruit is happy with the way his team – a young team – played this season and is proud of their 7-3 record.

“It was a disappointing loss to Salem in our last game,” Nosal said. “We finished 7-3, which is still a good record. I felt we overachieved. We had a lot of young players who played well.”

Nosal started at tight end and defensive end for Kellam Head Coach Chris DeWitt. On offense he was much more of a blocker than a receiver in past years, but things changed this season. Nosal finished the year with 19 catches for 380 yards and five touchdowns.

In terms of his blocking, Nosal says “I feel like I improved a lot.” Virginia Tech fans could see Nosal doing a lot of blocking in the future, as he may likely up at offensive tackle on the next level.

“I feel if I work hard I probably could have a chance to be a tight end,” Nosal said of his future position. “But I don’t know. Virginia Tech has about four other tight ends coming in, so it will be tough to compete. I do think tight end is my best position right now, but I also think I can grow into a tackle.”

His high school football career complete, Nosal will now focus on varsity basketball. He will also continue to work in the weight room to prepare for Virginia Tech.

“It’s time to get back to work,” Nosal said. “I took a few days off after football season, but it’s time to get back to work now. I’ll get back in the weight room and also focus on basketball.”

Nosal plans to take an official visit to Virginia Tech in the coming months, although he isn’t sure of a date just yet. He has been to Blacksburg for a game earlier this fall.

“I went to the Southern Miss game,” Nosal said. “It was amazing. The atmosphere was intense. The fans were nuts. They were jumping up and down. I was actually a little nervous. It gave me goosebumps to know I would be on that field next year.”
