Billy West

Billy  West Billy West (Buckeye Local High School. Class of 1993). He made his biggest impact on the football field,earning All-Ohio honors three times, including twice as a first team selection.

West also was a three-time All-OVAC selection (1990, ’91 and ’92) and a three-time All-Eastern District pick (first team in ’91 and ’92, second team in ’90). He also participated in the Rudy Mumley/OVAC Charity All-Star Football Classic following his senior season.

After starting as a freshman at Buckeye North, where he rushed for 900 yards despite missing two-plus games due to injury, he put up some ultra-impressive numbers at the newly-consolidated Buckeye Local High School.

He finished with what still stands as a school-record 4,658 yards, including a single-season effort of1,846 yards as a senior. He also had 1,719 yards as a junior and 1,093 as a sophomore. He also owns six of the top seven individual game rushing record at Buckeye Local, headed by a whopping 335-yard game against Martins Ferry in 1991 (second all-time). West scored 352 points on the gridiron, including 152 in his final season.

During his three years with the Panthers, the team compiled a 28-4 combined record (9-2 in 1990,10-1 in 1991 and 9-1 in 1992), making the playoffs twice and narrowly missing on a third. West also lettered three years in track and two in basketball for the Panthers.

He was a four-year letterman at the University of Pittsburgh, starting for three years and earning All-Big East 'Offensive Player of the Year' honors as a sophomore (1994) after replacing All-American tailback Curtis Martin in game two and rushing for 1,358 yards, fifth on the all-time single-season rushing list. A Panther tri-captain as a senior, West finished as the school’s fourth all-time leading rusher with 2,803 yards.
