High school football sectionals begin Friday night. The team with a big target on their back is Rush-Henrietta. Three sectional titles in five seasons don’t seem to be enough for the experienced bunch who expects nothing less than a chance at another state title.
Two words to describe Rush-Henrietta Comets is senior leadership. The stacked team of 30 seniors is poised to lead the way in Class AA once again.
Joe Montesano, RH Head Football Coach: If you allow yourself to get comfortable this time of year, it doesn't go well. We try to win Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and hopefully we've done the work that come Saturday we can play well.”
Rush-Henrietta won it all last season in Class AA defeating Pittsford in the championship game. R-H won a state championship two years led by quarterback Ashton Broyld. Their spread no-huddle offense continues to fit for current quarterback Chauncey Scissum, who was Broyld’s wide receiver.
Chauncey Scissum, RH Quarterback, said, “I don't prefer one to the other just making plays. I like to think of myself as a good player, guys making good plays on the outside I can make plays and I had a good QB making me look pretty good.”
Scissum is an elusive quarterback leading a high powered offense that averages 34 points a game. Runningback Bay Barley also has a lot to do with that, his speed and athleticism also helped to define this team.
Bay Barley, RH Runningback, said, “Being a senior comes with leadership you have to it its sectional time and buckle up leadership is the key. It's either win or go home no one wants that we're going to focus on what we can do to win this game.”
The Class AA quarterfinal game between No. 1 Rush-Henrietta and No. 8 Webster Thomas is set for Saturday at 2pm. Class A quarterfinal games get underway Friday night. News10NBC will have highlights on News10NBC at 11.
