Spartans blitz Ballard
Skyline High School quarterback Jake Heaps tuned up for his big battle with Nick Montana Sept. 10, when he tossed two touchdown passes and ran for another as the Spartans blitzed Ballard 42-12 in a nonleague football game in Seattle’s Memorial Stadium.
Skyline, 2-0 and defending 4A state champions, will entertain Montana and Oaks Christian School, of Westlake Village, Calif., Sept. 18 in a nonleague contest.
Montana, son of former National Football League Hall of Fame quarterback Joe Montana, and Heaps are regarded as two of the top high school quarterbacks in the nation. Heaps has committed to Brigham Young University while Montana has committed to the University of Washington.
Heaps threw two touchdown passes in Skyline’s 28-point first quarter. He connected with Connor Brandt on a 26-yarder and with Miles Edwards on a 9-yarder. Heaps also ran two yards for a touchdown.
Cooper Pelluer scooped up a fumble and ran 20 yards for the other first-quarter score.
Skyline wrapped up its scoring in the second quarter on a 6-yard run by Kai Jandoc and a 3-yard touchdown pass from Tait Stephens to Mitchell Kim.
Oaks Christian defeated Mission Hills Alemany 28-17 Sept. 4. Montana passed for 152 yards and a touchdown. Last year, as a junior, Montana threw for 2,404 yards and 33 touchdowns as Oaks Christian posted a 14-0 record.
