Wheeling Miners Announce Promotion of Matt Porter to Assistant General Manager

Wheeling, WV - April 22, 2024 - The Wheeling Miners, the city's beloved arena football team, are thrilled to announce the promotion of Matt Porter to the position of Assistant General Manager. Porter, a dedicated member of the Wheeling community for over 12 years, brings with him a wealth of experience and a profound passion for both football and the Ohio Valley region.

Originally hailing from Marysville, CA, Porter's journey to Wheeling is marked by his impressive football career. A former high school classmate and teammate of Miner's Head Coach and General Manager Josh Resignalo, Porter's football prowess extended through his collegiate years, playing for prestigious institutions such as the University of Nevada Reno, American River College, and Youngstown State University.

Beyond his athletic achievements, Porter's commitment to community engagement shines through his active involvement in various local organizations. From coaching youth sports to serving on the board of the Woodsdale Baseball & Softball Organization and The Ohio Valley Jokers Baseball Club, Porter's dedication to uplifting the Ohio Valley community is unwavering.

Expressing his excitement for the collaboration with his long-time friend and teammate, Head Coach Josh Resignalo shared, "It's been surreal getting to work with a good friend and high school teammate in Matt. To get to continue to be involved with football and build something special and get to be an impact on a community that will support what we do and we all have fun doing makes it that much better."

In his expanded role as Assistant General Manager, Porter will not only continue to lead the Community Partnership program but will also lend his expertise as a defensive coach for the team. With his deep-rooted connections to the local community and an unwavering commitment to excellence, Porter is poised to make a significant impact both on and off the field for the Wheeling Miners Football Team.
