"I've got Seth and Seth has always been good, so no matter who I would've had this year I would've fed Seth the ball," Snyder said. "He's the type of kid you want to have the ball in his hands."
In other games (ranking reflects Daily Mail poll voting):
Class AAA No. 3 George Washington (3-1) at Princeton (0-4) - After an emotional week that saw the death of freshman Drew Morton, the Patriots go on the road to face a hapless Princeton team that has given up an average of 47 points per game. GW senior running back Ryan Switzer is back near the top of the area rushing leaders after missing nearly the entirety of the Patriots' first two games. Switzer has 567 yards and six touchdowns on 42 carries.
Class AA No. 1 Wayne (3-0) at No. 8 Sissonville (2-1) - Fresh off its record-breaking scoring night in an 84-42 win at Ravenswood, Wayne visits Joe Sawyers Field tonight in the only area game featuring two ranked teams.
The Pioneers are led by senior running back Brandon Spurlock's 375 yards and three touchdowns on just 22 carries. Spurlock has not carried the ball once in the second half of a game this season.
Sissonville senior Trent Stowers is expected to play tonight after leaving last week's loss to Scott with an injury late in the game. Stowers has 367 rushing yards and three touchdowns on 40 carries.
Class AA No. 6 Scott (4-0) at Poca (2-2) - The trio of ball-carriers Robert Bias (492 yards), Cameron Loftus (375) and Tristan Crone (269) has the Skyhawks at the top of the SSAC playoff ratings. They visit O.O. White Stadium tonight to face a Poca team that dropped a double-overtime loss at Chapmanville last week when leading rusher T.T. Loudin was held out of the end zone on a 2-point conversion attempt.
Gilmer County (1-3) at Class A No. 5 Buffalo (2-1) - The Bison scored a big win on the road last week by beating Greenbrier West, and return home to face a Titans team whose only win is a rout of winless Paden City.
Lincoln County (0-4) at Nitro (1-3) - Nitro ended an 18-game losing streak last week against rival St. Albans. Lincoln County enters tonight's game having only scored 28 points in four games, and has been shut out in its last two outings.
Parkersburg (2-2) at St. Albans (0-4) - The Red Dragons, like Poca, were kept from a win last week on the final play of a game. Parkersburg has been hit-and-miss so far this season, and this could be another high-scoring affair. The Big Reds give up an average of 37 points per game. St. Albans is giving up 47.5.
Lewis County (2-2) at Herbert Hoover (0-4) - The Minutemen added this game to their schedule after Big 10 Conference rival Bridgeport dropped to Class AA, replacing the third-ranked Indians. Hoover continues to struggle in 2012, dropping a 46-7 loss at Tolsia last week.
Other area games include Class AAA No. 2 Cabell Midland (4-0) at No. 4 Huntington (4-0), Clay County (1-3) at Nicholas County (2-2), Ripley (2-2) at Beckley (3-1), Williamstown (2-2) at Class AA No. 9 Ravenswood (2-1), Roane County (2-2) at Braxton County (2-2), Van (1-2) at Midland Trail (2-2), Sherman (1-3) at Liberty-Raleigh (3-1), Fayetteville (0-4) at Valley-Fayette (3-0) and Chapmanville (2-2) at Logan (3-1).
