Holy Spirit quarterback Tom Hehre has completed 13-of-21 passes for 182 yards this season.
St. Joe quarterback Anthony Giagunto has completed 6-of-7 passes for 98 yards and a touchdown.
Hehre and Giagunto aren't as well known as their teammates, and the two haven't thrown the ball much at all, but they could be called upon to make the key play that helps decide Saturday's much anticipated game between the two state powers. Neither team is going to throw the ball 30 times, but timely completions could keep scoring drives alive.
Spirit (2-1) and St. Joe (2-0) kickoff at 2 p.m. at St. Joe in Hammonton. Spirit is No. 1 in The Press Elite 11 and St. Joe is No. 2.
"I think it will come down to the quarterback play on both sides," Spirit coach Charles Roman said. "Whether it's throwing the ball or scrambling for a first down. Somebody's quarterback is going to make a play, and it's going to be the deciding factor in the game."
