Leaderboard taking shape headed into final week

FAIRMONT — The final week of the high school football regular season is upon us.

That means there’s just one more game for most Big 10 teams to help improve their playoff chances and for players to add to their season stats if the field of 16 just isn’t in the cards this year.

There will be 11 Big 10 teams in action this weekend, with the main attraction being the annual East-West game between the Polar Bears and Bees.

Fairmont Senior will be looking to try and climb into a home playoff game while East Fairmont is looking for its first win in the rivalry since 2007.

Last week’s standout performance comes from Rachel and the North Marion Huskies.

Running back Ryan Elliott helped North Marion close out the 2013 season with a win as he ran for 233 yards and a touchdown in the win over Grafton.

In other top performances around the league, East Fairmont’s Jake Delaney threw for five touchdowns and Bridgeport’s Anthony Bonamico and Lewis County’s Mark Metzgar both scored four each.

oooooo

Bonamico leads the Big 10 in rushing with 1,431 yards on the year.

He is one of five players to break the 1,000-yard mark so far, followed by Fairmont Senior’s Noah Harmon (1,098), Lincoln’s Ty Seibel (1,068), Philip Barbour’s Dylan Johnson (1,031) and Preston’s Josiah Nuse (1,017).

Lewis County’s Mark Metzgar (920) will more than likely join them after next week’s games and North’s Elliott just missed the club, finishing the year with 825 yards.

East Fairmont’s leading rusher is Scotty Shroyer with 420 yards.

In all, 61 players have rushed for more than 100 yards this season.

oooooo

Lincoln’s Jarrod Kellar remains on top of the conference passing leaderboard.

Kellar is approaching a 2,000-yard season; he has 1,998 yards with a home game against Liberty left on the schedule.

West’s Austin Norman is second with 1,701 yards but leads the Big 10 with 19 touchdown passes.

East Fairmont’s Jake Delaney is in third with 1,623 yards and just behind Norman with 18 touchdown passes.

Preston’s Scott Stone (1,075) and Grafton’s Cole Collins (1,008) round out the Top 5 and are the only other quarterbacks with more than 1,000 yards through the air.

North Marion’s leading passer is Kyle Elliott with 261 yards and a pair of touchdowns.
