Hamilton quarterback Nicco Marchiol knew there would be a lot of passing yards when the Huskies matched up against the Higley Knights.
The Hamilton slinger and Higley quarterback, and Cal commit, Kai Millner worked out in the offseason together with specialty coach Mike Giovando.
What resulted was a 42-36 Hamilton win that had plenty of big plays and trips to the end zone.
Marchiol completed 75% of his passes and connected on two touchodwns. He also added 113 rushing yards. Millner logged over 400 total yards and five touchdowns.
It was truly the quarterback showdown fans were hoping for going into this game.
