Vote: Who will be the top West Virginia AAA-A wide receiver of 2024?

We give you seven candidates to select from

The quality of wide receiver play in West Virginia was on full display in the 2023 season in every classification. That’s because the state is filled with pass catchers who can change games with either their route running abilities, catching the ball or both.

There’s no shortage of talented wide receivers 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 AAA-A wide receiver in West Virginia for 2024. Voting closes April 28, 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: 

Carson Brinegar, Scott: The kind of numbers Brinegar put up last season were impressive and matched with anyone in the state. In 2023, Brinegar caught 78 passes for 1,296 yards and 12 touchdowns for the Skyhawks. 

Cannon Dinger, Fairmont Senior: The Polar Bears had no trouble putting up plenty of points and yards offensively, with Dinger being one of the go-to-wide receivers. Dinger caught 55 passes for 982 yards and scored 11 touchdowns. 

Malachi Thompson, Nitro: As just a sophomore in 2023, Thompson exploded onto the scene as one of the top pass catchers around. Thompson last season hauled in 57 passes for 1,264 yards and 20 touchdowns. 

Navaughn Jones, Fairmont Senior: Jones has transferred to Fairmont Senior to team up with Dinger and the duo will be tough to slow down. Last season, Jones caught 20 passes for 371 yards and scored six touchdowns. 

Isaiah Bush, Scott: Pairing up with Brinegar to form one of the best wide receiver duos in all of AAA-A, Bush will enter 2024 with some high expectations. Bush last season caught 39 catches for 693 yards and nine touchdowns. 

Brock Martin, North Marion: Whether it was playing wide receiver or cornerback for the Huskies, Martin did it on both sides of the ball. The 6-foot, 180-pound wide receiver impressed many in 2023 and is primed for a big 2024 campaign. 

Ty Sperringer, Brooke: Now Sperringer did a lot of different things for the Bruins last season playing quarterback, running back and wide receiver. At 5-foot-10, 155-pound athlete, the sophomore will have a chance to blossom into a solid wide receiver.
