It was sweet revenge for the 2012 Burnt Hills football team when they defeated Sweet Home of Section VI 40-20 for the New York State Class A Championship at the Carrier Dome in Syracuse. The Spartans had been beaten by Sweet Home in the state final in 2008 and 2009. Coach Matt Schell’s squad was not to be denied this time around, coming out strong and taking a 26-0 lead at halftime, then trading scores with their former nemesis in the second half. The Spartans exhibited a well-rounded attack all season, and the state finale was no different. They played well on both sides of the ball. Key contributors were quarterback Ryan McDonnell, senior captain Nick Marchisiello, Dan Maynard, Eric Dillon, Dan Nuzzi, Logan Ball, Dan Newell, Dan Porter, and Josh Quesadaamong others. A lot of Dans on that squad.
