Hilton varsity football coach Rich Lipani reminded fans of local high school football that Aquinas senior quarterback Jake Zembiec is more advanced than most quarterbacks his age.

There were people who were impressed with Rush-Henrietta senior quarterback Jared Gerbino, too, last week during the Section V Class AA semifinals.

Zembiec, who committed to play at Penn State University last November, probably is the most accurate passer in Section V. In a twist, the 2013 Class AA state player of the year helped Aquinas defeat Hilton in the Class AA sectional semifinals with 61 rushing yards on 10 carries, including the go-ahead touchdown, a two-yard run, in a 21-14 win for Aquinas.

He ran 55 yards to score Rush-Henrietta’s first touchdown and threw a 36-yard scoring pass to Reggie Robinson in the fourth quarter of R-H’s 20-19 win.
