Wheeling Miners Sign Versatile Athlete Joel Zellem

Wheeling, WV - Washington Spine, Disc and Joint Center and the Wheeling Miners are thrilled to announce the signing of dynamic athlete, 6’4 300lb Joel Zellem. Joel brings versatility and athleticism to both sides of the ball. Zellem, an alum of Waynesburg University and a standout from Riverside High School in Ellwood City, PA, is set to make a significant impact on the team.

Zellem's ability to play multiple positions, including defensive line, guard, tight end, and fullback, makes him a valuable addition to the Miners roster. Expressing his enthusiasm for this new chapter in his career, Zellem shared, "I'm excited for this next step in my career and even more thrilled to be playing so close to home."

General Manager and Head Coach Josh Resignalo discovered Zellem's talent at the National Scouting Combine in Indianapolis, IN, where despite living just 40 minutes away from Wheeling, Zellem caught Resignalo's attention. Reflecting on the discovery, Resignalo remarked, "What’s crazy about that is I had to find him at a combine 5hrs away, and he only lives like 40 minutes from Wheeling. So that’s pretty funny." Resignalo emphasized the importance of local talent, encouraging aspiring players from nearby universities to explore opportunities with the Miners.

In light of Zellem's signing and the team's commitment to local talent, the Wheeling Miners extend an invitation to all college players in the vicinity to participate in their upcoming open tryout on March 15th. The organization looks forward to witnessing the talent and potential within the community and anticipates a strong turnout for the event.
