Bonamico, Kellar, Shroyer lead Big 10 individuals

FAIRMONT — The high school football season is quickly coming to a close.

Most teams around the state have only three regular-season games left on the schedule.

Of the 13 teams in the Big 10 Conference, five would be in the playoffs if the season ended today.

Lewis County would be the lone AAA participant, while Bridgeport, Fairmont Senior, Philip Barbour and Lincoln would make the Class AA field. Robert C. Byrd is just one spot outside of making the playoffs in AA.

This week, just like any other, had plenty of memorable performances from around the league, but one stood out as the most dominant.

Preston’s Josiah Nuse almost single-handedly led the Knights to a victory over East Fairmont during the Bees’ homecoming at Fairmont State University.

Nuse, a junior running back, scored six touchdowns, had a pair of two-point conversion runs and rushed for 204 yards on 21 carries in the contest.

The 40 points put on the board by Nuse was more than East Fairmont scored in the game (39).

Bridgeport’s Anthony Bonamico is still the Big 10’s leading rusher with 1,194 yards on the season, but he has company in the 1,000-yard club.

Fairmont Senior’s Noah Harmon broke into triple figures in the Polar Bears’ win over Braxton County. He now has 1,026 yards on the season. The last Bear to break 1,000 yards rushing in a season was Trevor Malnick (1,108) back in 2011. With three games left, Harmon has a very good chance of topping that mark.

Lincoln’s Ty Seibel is third with 947 yards and Nuse continues his climb up the leaderboard, sitting in fourth with 831 total yards.

Lewis County’s Mark Metzgar rounds out the Top 5 with 770 yards.

North Marion’s Ryan Elliott leads his team with an even 500 yards and is ninth in the conference in rushing.

East Fairmont is paced by Scotty Shroyer with 257, which is 23rd in the Big 10.
