Summers, Rohrig, Reed, First Team

After finishing 9-3 and advancing to the Class AAA quarterfinals, the Bridgeport High School football was once again well-represented on the Class AAA All-State football team announced today by the West Virginia Sports Writers Association.

Kamar Summers was chosen as a first-team lineman, Zach Rohrig is one of the first-team running backs and Phil Reed earned first-team honors at linebacker.

Ryan Hall was picked as a second-team defensive utility player.

Additionally, Charlie Brazier, Taylor Thomas, Aidan Sparks and Ty Martin earned honorable mention honors.

All of the BHS players on the all-state team are seniors except for Rohrig and Sparks.

“It’s a group that ever since I’ve known them, ever since they walked through the doors as freshmen, it was a group that worked extremely hard,” BHS coach Tyler Phares said. “They didn’t make excuses. They held each other accountable. They worked through some extremely difficult situations.

“They went through COVID, they lifted in basically a closet when our weight room was under construction. They have went through one of the craziest high school careers one could imagine. And for those kids to do so at a high level and not complain and do what they are supposed to do just speaks volumes to who they are as people. And I’m glad to see them have success on the football field.”

Summers was a dominant force in the trenches on both sides of the ball for the Indians. On offense, he paved the way for a ground attack that averaged 368.2 yards per game. Defensively, he finished with 29 tackles, five for a loss, and three sacks.

Rohrig accounted for most of those yards as he finished with 1,583 rushing yards and 19 touchdowns. The talented junior also excelled on defense with 56 tackles, two TFLs and three interceptions.

Reed was also a 1,000-yard rusher (1,136 yards with 12 TDs) but was also the Tribe’s leading tackler with 101 stops from his middle linebacker spot.

Hall was the team’s ultimate utility player. On offense he saw snaps at T-back, F-Back and was the team’s primary blocking back and finished with eight rushing touchdowns. Defensively, he played both end and linebacker and finished with 43 tackles, including 3.5 for a loss, 1.5 sacks and three fumble recoveries.

Brazier and Martin both were productive on offense as well as defense. Brazier had 546 rushing yards, seven rushing touchdowns and the team’s lone TD reception (on a 41-yard pass from Reed) to go along with 53 tackles, 5.5 TFLs and an interception.

Martin had 419 rushing yards and eight touchdowns, and emerged as a shutdown corner with two interceptions, 11 pass breakups and 34 tackles.

Sparks was key in the Indians’ single-wing attack with his blocking from his tight end spot and on defense posted 40 tackles including team-high totals of 11 tackles for a loss and four sacks.

Thomas made 3-of-6 field goals with a long of 37, converted 56-of-58 PAT attempts, averaged 39.6 yards per punt and was a weapon in the kickoff game with his ability to directional kick or send the ball into the end zone for a touchback.

This marks the fourth straight year and seventh out of the last nine that the Indians have had at least three first-team all-state players.
