Vote: Who is the top West Virginia AA/A QB of 2024?

We give you eight candidates to select from

The quality of quarterback play in West Virginia was on full display in the 2023 season in every classification. That’s because the state is filled with signal callers who can change games with either their arms, legs or both.

There’s no shortage of talented quarterbacks in West Virginia, which makes it hard to pick just one as the best in the area.

So here at SBLive Sports West Virginia, we’re asking you, the fans, to decide.

Vote now on who is the top AA/A quarterback in West Virginia for 2024. Voting ends March 21, 2024.

Editor’s note: Our corresponding poll is intended to be fun, and we do not set limits on how many times a fan can vote during the competition. This poll is specifically for fans to vote on the players that have been nominated and in no way discredits any other players who may not be mentioned in our poll.

Here are the nominations: 

Noah Collins, Clay County: Collins was not too far behind the state’s leaders when it came to having stellar numbers. The junior completed 212-of-315 passes for 3,130 yards and 43 touchdowns.

Gavin Derby, Valley: Whether it was making plays through the air or the ground, Derby did it all. The dual-threat quarterback completed 69-of-128 passes for 1,336 yards and 15 touchdowns. Also rushed for 1,628 yards and 22 touchdowns. 

Kadien Vance, Westside: Vance is another dual-threat playmaker in the AA/A classification that can do it all. The junior last season threw for 1,709 yards and 23 touchdowns and rushed for 457, seven scores. 

Brysen Dixon, Doddridge County: Dixon completed 90-of-159 passes for 1,387 yards and 14 touchdowns for Bulldogs in 2023.

Devon Sanders, Man: One of the most unique nicknames in all of West Virginia, the Hillbillies, features one of the top quarterbacks coming back in this class. Sanders in 2023 threw for 455 yards and nine touchdowns to just two interceptions. 

Ryan Kent, St. Marys: The Blue Devils had no trouble scoring points with Kent navigating the offense. Kent led the offense to over 40 a game, throwing for 1,008 yards, 15 touchdowns and rushed for 352 on the ground. 

Isaac Snyder, Webster County: Accounting for 14 total touchdowns last season, Snyder is aiming to have a big year in 2024. Snyder threw for 708 yards, 11 touchdowns and added 106, two scores rushing. 

Brayden Gregory, East Hardy: Gregory didn’t see much time last season under center, but has a high ceiling heading into 2024. In 2023, Gregory completed 5-of-7 passes for 66 yards and a touchdown.
