WVU’s quarterback commit for the 2022 class had a storybook season as a senior — and the epilogue keeps getting longer.

Nicco Marchiol was named the MaxPreps Arizona High School Football Player of the Year on Tuesday, a day ahead of the start of the early signing period. He finished his career at Hamilton with an 11-1 season, but fell in the state semifinals.

Marchiol, a four-star prospect and a top-five recruit in Arizona, threw for 2,429 yards and 35 touchdowns in his final campaign. He also added 286 rushing yards and six scores on the ground.

This honor comes a week after Marchiol was given his first such nod, as he was named the Gatorade Arizona Football Player of the Year on Dec. 7.

Standing 6-feet, 2-inches tall and weighing 216 pounds, the Chandler, Ariz. native gave his commitment to Neal Brown and the Mountaineers in June.
