Check out our Scout Sheets!
We have taken on the task on being the organizing middle man for West Virginia prep football players. Gaining a scholarship, on any level, can be life changing for a player and their family! We see the value in that. In part with our normal coverage of the state football realm, we have been working on our Scout Sheets. There will be three total released as below:
Offensive Skill (Released already)
Linemen & Combo (Released 3/5)
Defensive Skill & Specialists (Released 4/5)
We have organized nearly 100 QBs, RBs, and WRs (as we will in the other sheets) with their height, weight, school, classification, year, and a hyperlink to their Hudl film. We are currently working on polishing it up. We would like players to report two things to us on their wishes: contact info (phone, email, social media) for the final sheet that will be sent to hundreds of college coaches, and if they will be attending the 304 Elite Camp or Appalachian Prep Combine! This info will be on a separate sheet for only college coaches to see.
Both high school coaches and college coaches receive these lists for FREE! At their asking.
If you would like to support or view our endeavor, click the link below to download the sheet for $7.99. You are sent free updates via email every time. Other sheets are purchased separately. If you are in the Big Boards below, you are definitely on the sheets! If not, you might still be so contact us at CoalfieldsCo@gmail.com!
Several quarterbacks fall within this category. It is truly hard for the signal caller to be unknown as he is typically the face of the present or future. Most AAA contenders return their quarterback or a familiar face to say the least. Austin Womack of Hurricane got meaningful reps last year and will most likely be Jeremy Taylor’s next up with the graduation of Nathan Roy. Womack will be a senior and has plenty of potential. Hurricane typically is well-coached offensively and he will be surrounded with #3 RB Christian Hill and #7 Nate Barham.
In AA, Gage Michael seems to be heir apparent to Connor Neal. He will be much more mobile, moving from wide receiver, but still a talented passer. Up in the northernmost school, Nick Chaney of Oak Glen put together a solid junior campaign tag-teaming with Zach Taylor to give the Golden Bears an actual air raid. Look for him to be a stat-stuffer. Drew Clark of Shady Spring appears to be the lone starter for his senior year after splitting time with Joe Cantley en route for the Tigers’ first playoff appearance in several years. He is an athletic-type passer.
Single A brings some interesting sleepers. Ean Hamric of Gilmer County is tall with a good lankiness that allowed him to be a feared passer. He still has a lot of work to do but considering he was a freshman last season- he has time to grow. Caleb Jantuah of Richwood began 2018 stellar alongside Michael McGee but the tandem struggled after a record-breaking opener. He is a versatile runner with potential in the passing game.
AAA is always exciting when a new class of runningbacks come through. 2019 appears to introduce us to a new set. Cabell Midland will have several but we’re interested in Isaiah Vaughn, younger brother of Ivan, who will get his time to shine fully. Capital youngin, Shawn James, seems to be a promising and agile replacement for Quisean Gray. Martinsburg returns the #2 and #12 backs, but look out for Kevon Warren and Braxton Todd to find meaningful reps.
We are expecting some big news out of AA too. Kieshawn Cottingham did not get a ton of plays last year for state champion Fairmont Senior but with several graduates, look for his role increased. He is quick, nimble, and explosive through the holes. Another player moving up our lists is current #15 RB Zackary Frye. He is well-sized, fast, and mean. Man returns several good players around him for a sneaky potential run.
Single A is always guaranteed a breakout rushing champ. We won’t even attempt to promise we will find him. We do see a lot of potential in Reece Nutter of Webster County- a small but tough runner. A big overlooked player is Jordan Waterhouse of Wheeling Central. With a lot of spotlight on other players, his presence in the run game went under the radar.
With such a fantastic class of wide receivers, it is not far-fetched that several good ones are being slept on outside of the spotlight. In AAA, Jaimelle Claytor of Saint Albans could grab some attention as his program stabilizes. He’s tall, athletic and will get looks at runningback and receiver. Ethan Parsons of Princeton could have a breakout campaign being the new lengthy receiver to replace Chiron Cannady in Princeton’s air raid offense. Kagen Teets of Musselman performed well in 2018 and as Ethan Wilson leaves, his role as a receiver increases.
In AA, keep an eye out for Jadon Hershberger of Shady Spring. He has good height and will be given the opportunity to be a deep threat paired with Isaiah Valentine and quarterback Drew Clark. Logan Vance of Clay County has been raved on. He missed many games in 2018 battling injuries but when healthy, he is their premier tall wide out.
Single A wide receivers tend to be a different breed as the best athlete tends to be moved to quarterback or runningback. In this case, we see potential in two small but crazy athletic quarterbacks as slot players on the next level. Kaleb Crisp of Valley (Fayette) and Danny Bush of Roane County impress with their maneuverability and intense agility. For now, they will be the playcallers for their respected squads.
