COVENTRY TWP. After a senior season in which his role was best defined not as a linebacker, quarterback, running back or receiver, but more aptly as the football equivalent of a Swiss Army knife, Nate Skaggs is set to continue his career for the Walsh Cavaliers.
Skaggs, who suited up at multiple positions for the Comets as a senior and led the team to two wins as its quarterback despite never having played the position before, joins a group of several Coventry players headed for Walsh. He amassed 387 yards and five touchdowns as a running back, 365 yards and three touchdowns as a receiver, 137 yards with four touchdowns as a quarterback and several big stops on defense as a linebacker, helping his team to an 8-2 record.
Skaggs will be on opposing sides of the Walsh-Malone rivalry from his brother Jaret, a reserve quarterback for Malone. He was joined by coaches and family members for his signing.
