WVU Commit Nicco Marchiol Impresses in Front of WVU Coaching Staff



Hamilton quarterback Nicco Marchiol has been exceptional all season, but being in Arizona, West Virginia coaches have been at a geographical disadvantage in getting to see him play in person.

With a bye week last week, the WVU coaching staff finally got to see Marchiol in action, and he didn’t disappoint.

In a 63-17 drubbing of Desert Vista, Hamilton led the Hamilton offense with 333 passing yards and five touchdowns on 22-of-31 passing. He even added 14 more yards on the ground and another score. And after the game, Hamilton head coach Michael Zdebski thanked WVU head coach Neal Brown and quarterbacks coach Sean Reagan for attending.

Through seven games this season, Marchiol has passed for 1,643 yards and 24 touchdowns on 114-of-159 passing. He’s thrown just one interception on 72% completion while also adding 246 yards and four touchdowns on the ground — at just under five yards per carry.

Marchiol has been one of the best high school players not just in Arizona but across the nation this season, leading the Huskies to a 7-0 record and No. 16 national ranking.

Hamilton has just three games remaining this season, capped by a regular season finale against cross-town rival Chandler High School. Next on the schedule, however, against an unbeaten Highland High School Friday at 7 p.m. PST.
