Bluefield's Collier wins Kennedy Award

Posted:

Collier has captured the illustrious Kennedy Award given to the top high school football player in West Virginia as voted on by the West Virginia Sports Writer's Association. He is the second Beaver in school history to win the honor. Quarterback Will Cole took it home back in 2008. Collier beat out last year's winner Mingo Central quarterback Jeremy Dillon, Martinsburg's Tyson Bagent and Huntington's Jadon Hayes to become the award's newest recipient. Collier rushed for over 2,200 yards and 39 touchdowns in helping the Beavers to a perfect 14-0 season and their 11th state championship in program history.
