West Virginia Offensive Lineman Doug Nester Impacting Rival Fans



West Virginia offensive lineman Doug Nester received a heartwarming video message on his Twitter account Friday evening.

A young Virginia Tech fan named Dani Jo checked in on Nester while holding a signed football card and a picture of the two when Nester played for the Hokies.

“Hey Doug, it’s me Dani Jo,” she said in the video. “I just wanted to check and see how you’re doing. It’s been a long time since I’ve seen you. I still have our picture and an autographed football card.

“I can’t wait to see you next month when West Virginia plays Virginia Tech. I’ll be right next to the buses after the game to talk to you. I can’t wait to see you and take another picture. Doug, I’ll talk to you later. Go Hokies and Go Mountaineers.”

Nester responded on the social media just over an hour later, saying he was excited to meet again and take another picture.

“Thank you so much Dani Jo,” Nester said. “I can’t wait to catch up and talk some! I’ll be ready for our picture, too.”

Nester played at Virginia Tech for two seasons before transferring to West Virginia prior to the 2021 season. He started all 13 games at right guard for the Mountaineers last year, including a win over Virginia Tech, and has totaled 30 starts in 32 career games played.

The Mountaineers will visit the Hokies at 7:30 p.m. on Sept. 22. This will be West Virginia’s second Thursday night game in four weeks. The matchup is scheduled to be broadcast on ESPN.
