“Not a chance,” Feyerabend said when asked if could have envisioned throwing for seven scores against a Tioga squad that allowed its first nine opponents to score a combined 54 points. “We have guys who can go up and get it and we have linemen who can block. I’m glad for it.”
The state record for touchdown passes in a game is eight. That was set by Buffalo St. Joseph’s Gary Castine in 1969. Feyerabend joins eight others from the state who have thrown seven in a game, most recently by Skaneateles’ Troy Green and Lawrence’s Joe Capobianco in 2011.
No one from Section Four has thrown seven touchdowns in a game.
“It’s nuts,” Komenda said of Feyerabend, who finished his sophomore season going 110-for-191 with 2,251 yards and 28 touchdowns. “He’s a sophomore quarterback. He has a bright future. He’s going to be great.”
Three Unatego players reached triple-digits in receiving yards, Winchester (6-147), Komenda (11-117) and Spaulding (2-118). Marszal contributed 82 receiving yards and Henry had 75 as seven Unatego receivers caught passes.
“On offense against them, we did some really good things, even in the first half,” Microni said. “We moved the ball.”
Unatego will graduate 13 seniors.
“We’re going to lose a lot of important guys, but I think we’re going to do real well next year,” Feyerabend said. “We’re good already.”
