Maynard to Eagles, 30 years apart


Thirty years to the day after his father and coach — Paul Maynard — came from West Virginia to Tennessee to play for the Eagles of Carson-Newman College, Jordan Maynard of Bearden High School is going from Tennessee to West Virginia to play college football for the Eagles of Charleston University (NCAA DIvision II). The All-state and All-Region 1-5A defensive end was part of a ceremony in the BHS East Mall Thursday, Feb. 2, one day after making it official by signing National Letter of Intent papers. Maynard said his son’s assets include “his size and speed, six-foot-five, four-five [40-yard dash time], he’s going in as their number one defensive recruit ... they project him being a starter for them his first year.” Jordan cited “facilities,” “coaching staff” and a chance to start as motivating factors. Seated alongside are his father and mother, Traycee Maynard. Standing, left to right, is younger brother Logan, a BHS sophomore long-snapper, and Sonya Winstead, aunt, principal of Cedar Bluff Middle School.
