Chapmanville Regional High School’s Dylan Smith is tackled in last year’s home win over Scott. The Tigers are slated to renew their rivalry with the Skyhawks on Friday night at Madison. The series dates back to 1953.


CHAPMANVILLE — The Chapmanville Tigers’ football team has its county rivalries with Logan and Man.

However, one rivalry goes back.

Way back.

And it’s the longest running yearly rivalry of all.

That’s Chapmanville’s series with the Scott Skyhawks.

Chapmanville is scheduled to renew its rivalry with Scott High School this coming Friday night as the Tigers head to Madison to take on the Skyhawks.

Both teams head into the game with identical 0-2 records. Chapmanville was beaten 13-12 by Herbert Hoover on Friday night at home, while Scott lost 34-20 to the Winfield Generals.

Chapmanville and Scott have played every year since 1953 and Game No. 64 is set to be played this week as the Tigers’ rival week with the Skyhawks will take place on the Scott Field Turf.

Scott leads the all-time series 33-29-1.

Chapmanville has had the upperhand in recent years as the Tigers lead Scott 4-2 in games played during the 2010s decade.

The Tigers won 48-16 over Scott last year at home, a season after the Skyhawks took a 39-14 decision over Chapmanville in 2014.

Chapmanville beat Scott 62-20 in 2010, 20-16 in 2011 and 20-13 in 2013. The Skyhawks took the 2012 game by a 40-21 score.

Scott dominated the early years of the rivalry, winning all seven meetings in the 1950s and holding the Tigers to just 24 total points.

The Skyhawks held a 6-4 edge in the 1960s and a 6-3-1 advantage in the 70s.

The tide then turned in the 80s as Chapmanville went 7-3 over Scott. The trend continued in the 90s as the Tigers won eight out of 10 meetings over Scott.

In the 2000s, Scott won seven and lost three against Chapmanville.

The only tie in the series was in 1971 as Scott and Chapmanville played to a scoreless tie.

In the first-ever meeting between the two schools in 1953, Scott beat Chapmanville and head coach Fletcher “Shag” Barker, 38-0.

Scott held the Tigers scoreless in the the first four meetings.

Chapmanville broke the ice in 1957 with a touchdown but lost 21-6 to Scott.

The first win by CHS over Scott was in 1960 in a 19-0 road win over the Skyhawks.

Sonny Ferrell (1955-56), Eddie Walowac (1957-59), Keno Polo (1961), Clarence Elkins (1973-77), Harold Christian (1978-84), Mickey Brown (1985-98), Ronnie Ooten (1999-2003) and George Barker (2004-15), the son of Shag Barker and the current CRHS Athletics Director, also coached the Tigers against the Skyhawks over the years.

Shag Barker coached the Chapmanville football team in the 1953 and 1954 seasons and again in 1960 and from 1962-72.

Friday’s game will be the first Chapmanville-Scott game with new Tigers’ coach Rob Dial wearing the headsets.

By contrast, Chapmanville and Man have played a non-continuous series with the Hillbillies holding a 27-12-1 advantage.

Man and Chapmanville first met in 1956. The two teams didn’t play from 1970-1983. After a six-year hiatus, the Tigers and Billies renewed their county rivalry in 2000 and have played every year since.

Oddly enough, despite the short distance between the two schools, Logan and Chapmanville only started playing each other in 2001. The Logan Wildcats lead the all-time series 8-7 over the Tigers.
