Wheeling Miners Welcome Championship-Winning Offensive Lineman Israel Evans, aka "Izzy," to the Team

Wheeling, WV – Washington Spine, Disc and Joint Center and the Wheeling Miners proudly announce the signing of Israel Evans, a seasoned offensive lineman with a proven track record of championship success. Affectionately known as "Izzy," Evans brings a winning mindset both on and off the field to the Miners, having secured back-to-back championships with the Atlanta Havoc in 2018 and the West Virginia Roughriders in 2019.

A native of Tampa, FL, where he currently resides, Evans made a significant impact during his junior year at Mayville State University, earning a spot on the North Star Athletic Association’s Preseason 1st Team list. With a stellar background, his addition to the Wheeling Miners is poised to elevate the team's performance.

General Manager and Head Coach Josh Resignalo expressed his enthusiasm about coaching Izzy once again, highlighting their successful collaboration during the championship-winning season of 2018. Resignalo remarked, "Having Izzy back in the Wheeling area is fantastic. He's not just a player; he's a fan favorite, and our fans will be thrilled to welcome him back to the Ohio Valley. Izzy played a pivotal role in the Roughriders' success, and we look forward to his contributions with the Miners."

Evans, equally excited about his return to Wheeling, expressed gratitude for the opportunity to play football again. He stated, "Being back in Wheeling and playing the sport I love is a blessing. To do it alongside a coach I've won with and in a city, I've won in— it doesn't get much better than that."

The Wheeling Miners eagerly anticipate a successful season with Izzy on board, confident that his championship experience and winning mindset will propel the team to new heights. Fans can look forward to witnessing Evans' exceptional skills and dedication to the game as he dons the Miners' jersey in the upcoming season.
