Josh Vogelbach attended West Virginia's individual camp the first part of last week, then travelled directly from Morgantown to Las Vegas for the Elite 11 camp before returning home this past weekend. His workload won't lighten, however, as he begins two a day workouts with Bishop Verot High School to prepare for the upcoming season. Does he worry about getting burned out with nearly year-round activity?
"I really don't," Vogelbach told BlueGoldNews.com. "I love football so much. I really like getting on the field and playing, so I don't worry about getting burned out at all."
Vogelback enjoyed his time at both camps, but had special words of praise for WVU and head coach Rich Rodriguez.
"Coach Rod does such a great job. The camp was great, and all the coaches really worked hard with us. We concentrated a lot on getting the proper depth in our drops, and on throwing on the run on sprint out passes. That's something I have to work on. Sometimes I slow up a little to throw the ball, and they gave me some drills to work on over the rest of the summer."
Those drills will come in handy for Vogelbach, who runs a spread offense for Bishop Verot, where he has racked up more than 4000 passing yards and 40 touchdowns during his career.
Vogelbach has strong ties to West Virginia. His father, Dan, was a standout at George Washington High School in Charleston, and Josh was born in the state. Although he moved to Florida before he began school, Josh kept his WVU ties by becoming a big fan of Major Harris during West Virginia's 1988 season.
"I watched Major all the time," Vogelbach said. "He was my idol. My dad took me to some games, and he was my favorite right from the start."
Vogelbach has West Virginia as the number one school on his list, and is also hearing from Northwestern, Miami of Ohio and others.
