The 6-foot-4, 210-pound senior quarterback led the Bulldogs to a 14-0 record and a fifth-straight Group AAA state championship this past season. Bagent completed 197-of-274 passes for a 72 percent completion rate, throwing for 3,199 yards and 41 touchdowns against just four interceptions, and he also rushed for eight scores. Bagent had a pair of TD passes and two scoring runs in Martinsburg’s 44-16 win over Spring Valley High in the state title game. A First Team All-State selection as a junior, he concluded his prep career with 7,759 passing yards and 93 touchdowns.
Bagent has maintained a 3.43 GPA in the classroom. He remains undecided upon a collegiate destination.
Bagent has volunteered locally as a youth football coach. “Tyson is an exceptional football player that comes around once in a while,” said Craig Hunter, head coach of Jefferson High. “He has great football intelligence and his ability to get rid of the ball with accuracy is also exceptional.”
