What we learned from Section V football’s Week 3

Your team is in great shape if you have a good quarterback.

Section V has plenty. But to name a few of the area’s best signal callers, just look at McQuaid’s Will DiMarco, Honeoye Falls-Lima’s Matt Meacham and Avon’s Chris Thompson. They all led their teams to one-score Week 2 victories.

Others played well in defeat. Take Fairport’s Jackson Rucker for example. The dual threat senior was close to leading the Red Raiders to an upset over four-time Section V champion McQuaid and impressed coach Knights Bobby Bates, who urged fellow Class AA teams not to take Fairport lightly this fall.

“Jackson Rucker is one heck of a quarterback,” Bates said. “He did a fine job finding his receivers. He’s a run threat as well. That’s a tough team to prepare for because they have so many weapons.”

McQuaid junior quarterback Will DiMarco played as well as advertised during the Knights’ first true test in Week 3, narrowly defeating Fairport after a pair of blowout wins to open the season.

McQuaid won 35-28, but Rucker helped Fairport (1-2) open with a 13-0 lead, and nearly engineered a game-tying drive in the final moments. Rucker guided receivers Sam Pucci, James Poligone and Patrick Nobes’ plays down field, forcing the Knights (3-0) to move their safeties over. Rucker threw a nice jump ball on Pucci’s touchdown, and called his own number on two rushing scores he ran for 89 of his 320 total yards.

McQuaid quarterback Will DiMarco has to pass over Fairport defender Joseph Roselli.

The Knights leaned on DiMarco to bring them back. His pass to John Harding pulled them within six. But DiMarco’s highlight came when he stepped up in the pocket and found Brenton Paladino up the seam for a 48-yard touchdown as time…
