Dec. 11, 2012 @ 12:00 AM

HUNTINGTON -- Linebacker Zach Wamsley from state champion Wahama was chosen as captain of the Class A all-state football team by the West Virginia Sports Writers Association.

The 6-foot, 195-pound Wamsley, a senior, made 91 tackles, had 4.7 quarterback sacks and intercepted two passes. His field goal against Magnolia put Wahama in the state championship game.

"He's been our leading tackler for three years," Wahama coach Ed Cromley said. "He's held our defense together. He's been a great leader."

Wahama halfback Kane Roush (5-10, 165, Jr.) was also a first team selection after rushing for 1,543 yards and 22 touchdowns.

Offensive lineman Zack Killingsworth (5-8, 220, Jr.) of the White Falcons was another all-state first team player.

Players on the all-state first team also included Buffalo defensive back Levi Jordan (6-3, 181, Sr.) and Tug Valley defensive lineman Isaac Parsley (6-3, 225, Sr.).

Jordan anchored a Buffalo defense that held opponents to 76 passing yards per game. Parsley had 93 tackles and seven sacks for the Panthers.

Wahama also had offensive lineman Wesley Harrison (5-11, 210, Jr.) and defensive back Trenton Gibbs (6-2, 195, Sr.) on the second team.

Buffalo defensive back Laythen Good (5-7, 151, Jr.) was part of the second team secondary.
