SAN ANTONIO – Antonian quarterback Jayce Toscano was named the Davis Law Firm Player of the Game in Game 1 of the KSAT Pigskin Classic Friday night.
QB Toscano threw for four touchdowns — two to Aden Samaniego, one to Jaden Villarreal and one to Raleigh Strode — and more than 230 passing yards.
“Everyone played great. Our offense was a team effort all around, our line was doing good, our receivers were in the right place,” said Toscano in a post-game interview. “It feels awesome. There’s obviously a great crowd you can hear a roar after each touchdown. It just a great way to start the season.”
Toscano led his team to a 47-20 victory over the Holy Cross Knights in the opening week of the high school football season.
Toscano was an all-state quarterback last season who threw for more than 2,500 yards and 30 touchdowns.
The KSAT Pigskin Classic continues Saturday with a triple-header: Southside takes on Somerset at 11:30 a.m., Jefferson faces Uvalde at 3:30 p.m. and O’Connor battles Brandeis at 7:30 p.m.
The 2023 KSAT Pigskin Classic opener was expected to be a high-scoring classic quarterback duel, as both programs return veteran starters to the game’s most important position.
