Statistical leaders add on during playoffs

FAIRMONT — The Big 10 is down to two.

The West Virginia high school football playoffs enter the semifinal round and both Bridgeport and Robert C. Byrd remain alive in the Class AA bracket.

RCB is the lowest-seeded team left in AA as the No. 13 seed. The Eagles are the second-lowest seed still playing in the state — only No. 14 Magnolia is lower and still alive in Class A.

Byrd will meet up with No. 1 Wayne this Friday, while No. 2 Bridgeport battles No. 3 Bluefield with a spot in the Class AA championship game on the line.

Bridgeport ended Big 10-foe Fairmont Senior’s season last week with a 28-0 victory.

Fairmont Senior finished the season with a 9-3 record.

Bridgeport’s Anthony Bonamico turned in another 200-yard game, going for 212 yards and three touchdowns in the Indians’ victory.

RCB’s Juwan Jones-Wright also had a nice game with 173 yards rushing and two scores.

oooooo

Not much has changed in the rushing category.

Bonamico is far and away the Big 10 leader and has eclipsed 2,000 yards rushing for the year.

He has 2,026 yards on the season and is averaging more than 12 yards per carry.

The rest of the Top 5 remains the same as the season is over for Lincoln’s Ty Seibel (1,215), Philip Barbour’s Dylan Johnson (1,176), Fairmont Senior’s Noah Harmon (1,098) and Preston’s Josiah Nuse (1,040).

Jones-Wright moved up to ninth in the conference and now has 779 yards rushing on the season.

oooooo

RCB’s Julian Marino moved up into the Top 5 for passing in the Big 10. Marino now has 1,073 yards and 12 touchdown passes on the season, giving the conference six quarterbacks with more than 1,000 yards passing.

Those above him remained unchanged with Lincoln’s Jarrod Kellar in the lead with 2,269 yards, followed by Fairmont Senior’s Austin Norman (2,149), East Fairmont’s Jake Delaney (1,890) and Preston’s Scott Stone (1,167).

Grafton’s Cole Collins is the other 1,000-yard passer with 1,008 yards this season.
