Number 35, Barry Winston Nash, a 19-year-old Sophomore, the son of Normal A. and Weltha Frye Nash, was a tight end who came from Henderson, West Virginia. He was 5 feet 10 inches tall and weighed 175 pounds. He was a graduate of Point Pleasant High School and was a walk-on, meaning he did not have a football scholarship. In his memory a deserving Point Pleasant High School football player is presented the Barry Nash Award at the school's annual Football Banquet.


Barry Winston Nash died in the plane crash.

His body was not identified and he is buried with five other unidentified players in the Springhill Cemetery.
