CHAPMANVILLE — Even though the playoffs didn’t turn out the way the Chapmanville Regional High School football team wanted, the Tigers had a memorable 2015 grid season.

It was a record-breaking season for Chapmanville’s “Tiger Trio” of quarterback Alex Berry, wide receiver Jacob Dingess and kicker Tanner Dillon.

The seniors combined to break 21 school records.

Berry and Dingess each broke nine records while Dillon broke three school marks.

CRHS football and school officials are still checking the record books. There still may be more marks that were broken by the three.

Chapmanville closed out the season a couple of weekends ago with a 42-14 home loss to Robert C. Byrd in the first round of the Class AA playoffs. It was the Tigers’ second-ever home playoff game.

Berry completed 165-of-251 passes for 2,345 yards with 31 touchdowns and eight interceptions this fall.

Berry’s nine school records are as follows: most TD passes in game (6) vs. Scott; most TD passes in season (31); most TD passes in career (58); most passing yards in a season (2,345); most passing yards for a career (4,973); most completions in a season (165); most completions for a career (358); most passing yards in a game (338) vs. Tolsia this season; and most completions in a game (21) vs. Tolsia, tied next week vs. Wayne this season.

Dingess finished the season with 73 catches for 1,157 yards with 15 touchdowns.

The nine school records set by Dingess are as follows: most TD receptions game (5) vs. Scott; most TD receptions in a season (15); most TD receptions for a career (23); most receptions in a season (73); most receptions for a career (130); most receiving yards in a season (1,157); most receiving yards for a career (2,014); most receptions in a game (11) vs. Tolsia this season; most yards receiving in game (240) vs. Tolsia this season.

Dillon had a remarkable season as Chapmanville’s placekicker. He kicked 46-for-50 of his extra point kicks — an accuracy rate of 92 percent — which is a school record.

He was also 3-for-4 in field goals. The three made field goals are also a Chapmanville school record.

The 46 made extra points is a school record for a season as well.
