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 already)
Defensive Skill & Specialists (Releases 4/2)
We have organized nearly 200 QBs, RBs, WRs, OL, DL, and Combos (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!
AAA linemen have been the hot commodity in the state for quite sometime. Behind the behemoth top recruits are some very good hogs lurking in the shadows. Between both Spring Valley and Huntington, we have heard a lot of praise for rising sophomores Evan Ferguson and Maxwell Wentz, respectively. Both appear to have a lot of growth potential and will begin seeing meaningful varsity reps. Corbin Turney of University also performed well being a crucial anchor as a freshman for the Hawks. Finally, in the Kanawha Valley, keep an eye out for Dustin Russell of Hurricane as well as Andrew Vickers of St. Albans- both all-conference level linemen, at least.
In AA, there are several well-sized linemen that can up their stock tremendously. Ian Baker of Grafton is a muscular and well-moving guard for Grafton. Steven Carpenter, with added size from the off-season, should form into a notable lineman for Sissonville. Two big sleepers on teams with little spotlight could be Tanner Hazelwood of PikeView and Andrew Stutler of Clay county. Both are 6’3+ with praise from coaches.
Single A features some interesting linemen prospects as well. Cy Persinger will be the lineman captain returning for Midland Trail after they lose some school hall of famers off the line. He’s athletic and put together. Hunter Bowling will have more room to shine for Sherman this season as a rising junior on both sides. Finally, Adam Baker of East Hardy fits the bill with his 6’4 frame and slender leverage and if his progression stays steady, could have an all-state year.
Both CJ Wade and Justin Waybright are typical Parkersburg ends. Lanky, linebacker-sized, but they can truly hold their own in the pit. Expect these two to be a constant pressure on those big offensive lines. Tristan Stiffler of Woodrow Wilson rounds out an already large line that shined with good size and agility. For Huntington, they have two young and potentially great defensive linemen between Corbin Page and Nick Johnson. Up in the panhandle, both Ethan Von Glahn (Hedgesville) and Nate Cole (Musselman) will be EPAC all-conference players.
Nate Barth (Point Pleasant) and Jordan Brueck (Weir) will be the muscle for deep and talented lines for both teams. Matt Stone returns for Poca looking to be 10.0+ sacks end this season. Derick Flack, a huge 6’4 330, and Garrett Jordan both appear to be capable as stepping up as the leader interior linemen for Bluefield this season. Three more interesting AA names to know are Kadin Jarrouji (Winfield), Dakota Rohrbaugh (Petersburg), and Luke O’Neil (James Monroe).
Singel A definitely has some defending big men to pop up on the radar for 2019. CJ Rose of Wheeling Central will get more big plays with the departure of the A Linemen of the Year. Van has a huge and strong centerpiece in Hunter McMicken. Ravenswood will put more on Zack Graham’s plate as a force on the front. And, Jalen Brunny returns after a quiet all-state season for Parkersburg Catholic.
Nate Baker should be an early riser for Greenbrier East. He was a menace outwide receiving as well as a consistent blocker. Keenan Smoot from the eastern panhandle will be an explosive runner and blocker. He has been the glue for the Hedgesville offense the last two seasons. Brayden Cutlip might be a tall tool to use for Buckhannon-Upshur on offense.
AA is full of sleeper combos going under the radar. Sayveon Beafore and Seth McIntyre are a great speed/power 1-2 punch for Liberty (Harrison). The Chapman brothers of Shady Spring, Dane and Haven, were both tough parts of the Tigers’ offense last season. Hayden Miller of Independence is a big athletic body with a lot of versatile potential. Lee Keaton of Roane County is an intriguing prospect standing 6’6. Finally, Eric Smith of Fairmont Senior might see action as a 6’4 tight end-esque receiver.
Single A possesses some tough work men as well. Clay Hudson of Sherman should get more big plays for his senior season for Sherman. Silas McKeever was also a lanky receiver on the line for Magnolia in 2018. Garrett Owens should be a large part of Ritchie County’s success as they look to get back to the playoffs. Ian Bush caps off as a strong back and blocker for Cameron.
