The Scott Skyhawks find themselves ranked in the top spot in this week’s WVSSAC Class AA Football Rankings, but there is no time to celebrate as the 6th-ranked Logan Wildcats come to West Madison in an attempt to end Scott’s time on top.
The Skyhawks (6-0) are coming off a 34-6 win over Mingo Central in a game where quarterback Matt Frye threw 5 touchdown passes.
Frye will lead Scott into battle after completing 94-of-158 passes for 1,569 yards, 21 touchdowns and only 3 interceptions. He has also carried the ball 35 times for 412 yards and 4 touchdowns.
Preston Cooper is Scott’s leading rusher with 515 yards and 4 touchdowns.
The Skyhawks have a quartet of receivers putting up huge numbers this season. Jayden Sharps leads the way with 465 yards and 6 touchdowns receiving on 31 catches. Brayden Clark has 380 yards and 5 touchdowns on 19 catches. Isaiah Bush has recorded 367 yards and 6 touchdowns on 15 receptions. Carson Brinegar has 19 catches for 316 yards and 4 touchdowns.
Logan (5-1) is coming of a 17-6 win over Nitro.
The Wildcats are led by quarterback Jaxon Cogar. On the season, Cogar has completed 86 of 138 passes for 1,082 yards, 12 touchdowns and 4 interceptions. Cogar is also Logan’s leading rusher with 358 yards and 3 touchdowns on 69 carries.
The leading receiver for the Wildcats is Aiden Slack. So far this season, Slack has 28 receptions for 402 yards and 4 touchdowns. Garrett Williamson has had a great year as well, registering 28 catches for 333 yards and 3 touchdowns. Julius Clancy has 15 catches for 217 yards and 3 touchdowns. Drew Berry has added 10 catches for 137 yards and 2 touchdowns.
There are huge stakes on the line in this one for both teams. A loss could potentially send Logan tumbling out of the Top 10, but a win would definitely move them up the rankings. A Scott win would probably keep them in the top spot, but a loss would drop them down a few places.
The opening kickoff is set for 7:30 pm in West Madison.
