Nuse, Preston refuse to roll over

FAIRMONT — When the Preston Knights started out the 2013 season with an 0-3 record, it would have been easy for them to fold and play out the season.

But they didn’t.

Now, on the back of a monster performance by Josiah Nuse, the Knights are 2-3 and 2-2 in the Big 10.

Nuse turned in one of the most dominant rushing performances the conference has seen this season against North Marion.

The junior running back gained 277 yards on just seven carries as he shredded the Husky defense for four touchdowns. He also returned the opening kickoff 93 yards for a touchdown.

Nuse averaged nearly 40 yards per carry in the contest.

Fairmont Senior running back Noah Harmon continues to hold onto the Big 10 rushing lead with 684 yards.

Bridgeport’s Anthony Bonamico has closed the gap and now is just four yards behind with 680. Lincoln’s Ty Seibel follows with 622 and Nuse vaulted into the No. 4 position and now has 476 yards on the year. Elkins’ Dylan Lucas is the No. 5 rusher with 473 yards.

East Fairmont finally got a 100-yard rusher for the season in Scotty Shroyer. Shroyer has 168 yards and North Marion is led by Ryan Elliott with 343.

Lincoln’s Jarrod Kellar is the first conference quarterback to crack the 1,000-yard mark this season and leads the Big 10 with 1,076 yards through the air.

The undefeated Polar Bears’ Austin Norman is second with 842 yards, but is the Big 10 leader with nine TD passes on the season.

Preston’s Scott Stone is third with 706 yards, followed by East Fairmont’s Jake Delaney (548) and Grafton’s Cole Collins (495).

North Marion is paced by Kyle Elliott with 126 yards passing.

All the top five quarterbacks are completing at least 50 percent of their passes.

Philip Barbour’s Al Johnson is still the conference leader in receptions with 31.

Lincoln’s Dillon O’Dell was able to close the gap some and now has 25 catches on the season, followed by East Fairmont’s Scotty Shroyer with 24.

Grafton’s Tyler Moore and Lincoln’s Anthony Gemondo are tied for fourth with 17 catches each.

Fairmont Senior’s Luke Hrapchak moved up the board with his most significant offensive production of the season and now has 13 receptions. North Marion is led by Chase Banker with seven catches. O’Dell leads the conference in receiving yards with 558 and 18 players have eclipsed 100 yards receiving on the season.
