Bridgeport High School senior standout Cam Cole for the second consecutive year has been named a Class AAA First-Team All-State utility selection.
He’s joined on the first team by a pair of teammates and fellow seniors in Tate Jordan as an offensive lineman and Landyn Reppert as a defensive utility selection
.Cole ran for 1,548 yards on 155 attempts with 24 touchdowns, while also throwing for 364 yards and four TDs as the Indians finished 12-1 with their lone loss coming against state champion Martinsburg in the semifinals, 21-0.
Jordan was the driving force for an offensive live that paved the way for 4,999 yards of rushing and also shined on the other side of the ball with 31 tackles, 7.5 tackles for a loss and three sacks.
Reppert was also strong on each side of the ball. He finished with 70 tackles from his linebacker spot with nine tackles for a loss, two sacks, four fumble recoveries and two fumble recoveries returned for a TD. On offense, Reppert ran for 1,549 yards on 181 carries with 15 touchdowns.
Martinsburg’s Hudson Clement was chosen as the first-team offensive captain, while Spring Valley’s Ty Bartrum is the first-team defensive captain.
Four BHS players earned second-team honors in Taylor Thomas (K), Phil Reed (LB) and a pair of defensive backs in Aidan Paulsen and Charlie Brazier.
Additionally, three more Indians earned honorable mention status with Kamar Summers, Ryan Hall and Aidan Sparks.
Thomas, a junior, made four of his five field goal attempts with a long of 31 and converted 60 of 62 PAT kicks.
Reed, a junior, the team’s unsung hero on offense as the blocking back, also excelled at linebacker where he had 69 tackles, six for a loss, one interception and one fumble recovery.
Paulsen and Brazier earned the nickname “The Bash Brothers” as two hard-hitting safeties.
Brazier, a junior led the Indians in tackles with 80 and added three tackles for a loss, two interceptions and two fumble recoveries. Brazier also ran for 290 yards and three scores.
Paulsen, a senior in his first year of high school football, led the Indians with four interceptions to go along with 65 tackles. He was also an effective option on offense finishing with 627 rushing yards and 10 touchdowns.
Much like Jordan, Summers, a junior, was a force on both sides of the line before a knee injury against Musselman cut his season short. An excellent run blocker, Summers also had 19 tackles, 3.5 for a loss and two sacks.
Hall, a junior, had 111 rushing yards and two touchdowns before Summers’ injury when he moved to the line to help the team out and he shined there as well as on defense as a linebacker with 41 tackles.
Sparks had a breakout season as a sophomore defensive end, finishing with 36 tackles and leading the team in tackles for a loss at 9.5 and sacks at 5.5.
South Charleston’s Trey Dunn on offense and Parkersburg’s Bryson Singer on defense are the second-team captains.
