Fairmont Senior’s Harmon leads Big 10 in rushing yards, scoring


FAIRMONT — oooooo

The Polar Bears’ Norman is still the league’s top passer, completing almost 60 percent of his throws.

Norman has completed 25-of-42 passes for 610 yards and a Big 10-best seven touchdowns.

Last season’s No. 1 passing quarterback Jarrod Kellar of Lincoln is second with 560 yards and a pair of TDs.

After that it’s Philip Barbour’s Dillon Newman (359), Preston’s Scott Stone (308) and Grafton’s Cole Collins (289).

East Fairmont is led by Jake Delaney (222) and Sam Swiger (132).

Delaney picked up most of his yards in the Bees’ season-opening win over Liberty, but Swiger’s accuracy 5-of-9 has helped him creep up the leaderboard.

North Marion’s top passer is Kyle Elliott with 126 yards.


Al Johnson continues to lead the conference in receiving.

Johnson has pulled in 20 receptions so far this season for 242 yards. He’s five receptions ahead of Lincoln’s Dillon O’Dell (15) in second place.

East Fairmont’s Scotty Shroyer is tied for third with Grafton’s Tyler Moore with 10 catches each.

Those four players are the only ones with double-digit receptions on the season so far.

Lincoln’s Anthony Gemondo (9) and Seibel (8) along with five players tied with seven receptions — including Fairmont Senior’s Ryder Skarzinski and Luke Hrapchak and North Marion’s Chase Banker — are poised to join them soon.


Harmon has taken over the conference scoring lead with 36 points. He’s trailed by Johnson (32), Bonamico and Seibel (30) and Skarzinski (26).

In all, 29 players have scored double-digit points this season.

Harmon also leads the Big 10 in touchdowns with six.

Bonamico, Johnson and Seibel all have five each.

The Big 10 has 25 players with multiple touchdowns on the season and 63 players have found the endzone at least once this season.

Lincoln’s Emily Knight, the league’s only female kicker, is tied for the most kicking points with Grafton’s Zach Rowand.

Knight has booted eight PATs and a pair of field goals.

Rowand has five PATs and a conference-high three field goals. Knight’s long FG is 32, while Rowand has knocked one home from 37 yards out.

Bridgeport’s Brennan Duarte has kicked 11 PATs and Lewis County’s Riley Gunter has 10.
