Nicco Marchiol Leads Miracle Comeback Win

Morgantown, West Virginia – West Virginia four star commit Nicco Marchiol played in front of a national audience last night and he didn’t disappoint!

Marchiol’s Hamilton High School was down 24-7 with only 1 minute and 10 seconds remaining in the game, and somehow, they managed to come back and win the game.

Hamilton (3-0) kicked a field goal with 1:06 left to to cut the lead to 24-10.  Hamilton then executed a perfect onside kick, got the ball back, and Marchiol threw a a touchdown pass to tight end Michael Masunas with 30 seconds left to cut the score to 24-17.

Then, after another successful onside kick, Marchiol quickly led his team 48 yards, ending it with a 22-yard strike to sophomore running back Nick Switzer with eight seconds to play cut it to 24-23.

Hamilton, of course, went for the two point conversion, where Marchiol ran it in for the win!

“He’s a tough kid,” Hamilton head coach Mike Zdebski said of Marchiol. “He knows how to finish.”

That’s a major understatement.  Marchiol willed his team to the most shocking upset in recent high school football history, beating the #7 ranked Bishop Gorman in truly miraculous form!

Marchiol finished the game 16-23 for 140 yards, 3 touchdowns and 1 interception against one of the top high school defenses in the country.
