Top 5 WV Runningbacks in AAA for 2020


The last two years we have been honored to found the West Virginia High School Coaches Clinics. We have grown it substantially and our talented lineup of speakers is only getting better! We had a successful Southern clinic and are now looking to do the same up north!

Paying for one camp grants access to both! If you purchased access to the Southern Clinic, the Northern Clinic will be free of charge. OR, you can prepay below for only $30 and have both camps taken care of immediately!

We look forward to seeing you all and having a great learning and networking experience!



For our second off-season, we will be releasing to the public our Offensive Skill Scout Sheet. It will not include the numeric ratings seen on the same sheets seen by college coaches but will use a color-coded guide. It will not have player’s academic and contact info- which will be seen by colleges.

What’s on it?

215 organized and evaluated 2021-2024 West Virginia Quarterbacks, Runningbacks, and Wide Receivers.

Where can I see it?

You can download it by clicking the link below. It is an Excel file so it is best to viewed on a computer.

Do colleges have to pay?

No, colleges will not pay for our scout sheets. They will be sent an all-in-one scout sheet that includes further information to assist in the recruiting process.


Honorable Mentions

Shawn James (Capital2022

Te-amo Shelton (Oak Hill) 2021

TIE – 5. Isiah Vaughn

Vaughn has had some injury battles these past years which have kept him putting together a huge abundance of film. However, when he is able to be apart of the Cabell Midland run game, he is a beast. He is a bit smaller but has great quick twitch, hip rollover, and bursts of speed. He is a hard runner and plays in a system where he will have top-notch run coaching. Hopeful to see him explode for his senior year.

TIE – 5. Devin Gaines

Gaines became a highlight reel show during Parkersburg South’s semifinal run. He is not incredibly fast but it is incredibly hard to take down. He isn’t short but keeps a low center of gravity which makes him a force to tackle inside the box. He also is a talented runner, using an allure of moves to evade tacklers such as hyper aggressive stiff arms. Though he isn’t a burner, he does have the ability to get huge gains for the Patriots.

4. Jaydyn Johnson

Johnson is another Scarlet Knight back that battled injuries all of 2019. When he did play, he racked up a lot of yards and touchdowns. He is a big runner with a tall frame and long strides. Johnson hits the gap hard and is pretty good at planting, making a move, and getting north. He also can hit homerun plays if he gets room to build his long-strided speed out. The Scarlet Knights will have a loaded backfield this year- once again.

TIE – 2. Kevon Warren

Warren was on our radar for 2019 but after star runningback, Naieem Kearney, began missing time due to injury, he really got his time to shine. Warren is probably the fastest runningback in the entire state and has been coached well on how to make the most being in open space or getting an open hole. He is a true slasher and playmaker. Martinsburg has to replace a lot this year but expect their running game to stay at the same level with Warren’s great athleticism.

TIE – 2. Naieem Kearney

Joining Warren in the Bulldog backfield is known star Naieem Kearney. He has a much different play style but is equally as dominant. He is much more muscular with a lower center of gravity and is also a very creative runner in the open field. Despite missing time to injury in 2019, he still had an excellent campaign that cemented him as one of the best all-around runningbacks in the entire state.

1. Blake Hartman

Hartman is one of the biggest stars in West Virginia football right now. Many claimed he should’ve won the Kennedy Award, and there was an argument to be made. He is a natural athlete that obviously has been in the weight room. Hartman dominants games in a variety of phases which makes him probably the best all-around player returning. He is an aggressive runner with great moves but also hard-nosed grind. The Applemen also use him as a talented receiver, returner, and all-state caliber linebacker. Excited to see him cap off a legendary career.
