Brooke's Buchmelter, Mason, and Rodgers to Play College Football

Posted: Updated:

Brooke High School's Alec Buchmelter, Raleigh Mason, and Ben Rodgers have committed to play college football for the next four years.

Buchmelter, a three-year starter at quarterback, has chosen West Virginia Wesleyan.

Mason will play running back at West Virginia State, and Rodgers will line up on the offensive line at Alderson-Broaddus.

They could all be opponents one day in the newly-former Mountain East Conference, formerly the West Virginia Conference.

Buchmelter led the Bruins to the Class AAA state championship game in his first season as a starter in 2010. Over his three years under center, he piled up over 5,600 all-purpose yards with 56 total touchdowns. He completed 95 of 196 yards last season for 1,145 yards.

Mason injured his knee in week one of the season, but worked his way back to play the final three games of the season. He rushed for over 100 yards and scored a touchdown in all three games.

Rodgers, 6-3 255 pounds, started every game as a offensive guard and played all 10 games as a senior.
