Two of the big men of the 2006 Clermont County high school football season will be on their way to compete on the collegiate level for West Virginia Wesleyan (WVW) College this summer. The WVW Bobcats are members of the West Virginia Intercollegiate Athletic Conference.
Ryan Giltz and Ben Dulle formed one side of the Goshen Warriors’ impressively powerful offensive line to the tune of being 575 pounds combined. Both were Southern Buckeye Conference (SBC) American Division all-stars and were Division II all-Southwest District selections. Giltz, one of the SBC’s players of the year (the other was Clermont Northeastern senior running back Danny Loch), was also a member of the all-state squad.
Giltz, a 6-feet, 3-inch, 295-pound strong-side guard, played four years of football at Goshen and earned three varsity letters. By the time he graduates he will have lettered four years in both wrestling and track and field.
With all of his activities in sports he does find the time to be a senior mentor. He plans to major in criminal justice at the Buckhannon, W. Va., school.
