    Down 3 to Joliet Catholic. Thirty-five seconds left. Montini ball on the Hilltoppers' 1-yard line. This meant War. Joey Borsellino, who 20 seconds earlier saved Montini's season on a fourth-down conversion, got the play call from his father, Lewis, the Broncos' offensive coordinator. "War," it was — quarterback tucked tight under center. Get low. Everybody push. "He said, Go under center. All you need is 1 yard and we'll go to state,'" Joey Borsellino said. "I was like, All right, I'll get 1 yard, Dad.' We did. It was great."
