Lincoln’s Seibel bolts to the top of the leaderboards

FAIRMONT — The thing about the Big 10 conference is that for the most part, the teams are pretty even talent-wise.

If you look back at the old NCAC, there was a large gap between the Morgantowns and Universitys and the Elkins and Buckhannons.

And that is never more evident than when you look at the statistics.

Lincoln and Philip Barbour are right there with the larger teams of Bridgeport and even Class AAA Robert C. Byrd.

This week’s standout performance helps illustrate that point.

Lincoln, who has one of the conference’s best quarterbacks in Jarrod Kellar, has turned to Ty Seibel to lead the team this year.

Seibel had 224 yards rushing last week and scored three touchdowns in the Cougars’ win over East Fairmont.

Seibel is now second among conference running backs and leads the league in both scoring and touchdowns.

Despite the fact that Noah Harmon and the Fairmont Senior Polar Bears were on a bye last week, the senior running back still holds the conference rushing lead.

Harmon has 557 yards on 30 carries, but Seibel closed the gap significantly and now has 542 yards on the season.

Bridgeport’s Anthony Bonamico has also broken the 500-yard plateau and sits at 509 on 55 carries. Philip Barbour’s Dylan Lucas rounds out the Top 5 with 471 yards.

North Marion is paced by Ryan Elliott with 222 yards and the East Fairmont Bees still have not had a back eclipse 100 yards on the season.

Scotty Shroyer now leads the Bees with 85 yards on 23 carries.

Lincoln’s Jarrod Kellar, last season’s leading passer, has retaken the Big 10 lead in passing yards.

Kellar has completed 49 of his 91 attempts for 751 yards and three touchdowns.

Preston’s Scott Stone has moved into second after leading his team to its first victory last week.

Stone has 622 yards on the year and six touchdowns.

Last week’s leader Austin Norman of Fairmont Senior fell to third while on the bye week. He has 610 yards and still leads the Big 10 with seven touchdown passes.

Philip Barbour’s Dillon Newman (359) and Grafton’s Cole Collins (330) finish out the Top 5.

East Fairmont’s Jake Delaney is in sixth among conference QBs with 328 yards passing. And North Marion, which switched from a pass-happy 2012 offense back to a more traditional Husky ground and pound, is paced by Kyle Elliott with 126 yards.
