AAA Team to Watch: Wheeling Park
Wheeling Park is a fascinating team to look at for the upcoming season. They undeniably have one of the most loaded skill groups of anyone with the likes of Sincere Sinclair, Carson Namack, Stevie Mitchell, and Shaheed Jackson. They also have two top tier linemen in Caleb Bryan and John Olako. You combine this with one of the most excellent staffs in West Virginia and excitement is sure to follow.
However, a huge question mark for them is who will be quarterback? They have all the surrounding pieces in place but a signal caller is definitely needed. For now, it seems unclear especially with the lack of practice time over the last few months. Regardless, the Patriots will be explosive and if they find a QB- very dangerous.
AA Team to Watch: Fairmont Senior
It is no surprise that the Polar Bears are the team to beat in the Northwest Region. Though they do lose the heart of their line and much of their great defense, they still return Gage Michael. The Kent State commit is potentially the best two-way player in Class AA. At quarterback he had games in 2019 in which he dominated passing and others where he dominated rushing. This is coupled with his next level play at defensive back.
Other top tier players join him such as Kayson Nealy at wide receiver, Aidan Green at tackle, and Eric Smith at defensive end. The Polar Bears won’t be as deep as the previous years but undoubtedly are a candidate for the state championship.
A Team to Watch: Wheeling Central
The three-time defending champs of Class A will look much different in 2020. They depart with their D1 quarterback as well as the backup who won them a state title. Filling in that void looks to be a creative trio that includes all-state defensive back Payton Marling. Marling will be a sure captain of this team alongside top class runningback Jordan Waterhouse.
Perhaps the biggest changeover will be some new faces on the line and new leaders on defense. Spencer Helms is an all-state caliber man up front and Vinnie High seems in line to take over the defense. Their schedule is absolutely brutal so their record might not reflect their skill. Either way, expect the Maroon Knights to be competing for a title once more.
