BATTLE GROUND — They played like they have known each other for a lifetime.
Oh yeah. They have.
Canon Racanelli, a junior quarterback, and freshman wide receiver Sawyer Racanelli put on a show Thursday at District Stadium, leading the Hockinson Hawks to a 41-14 victory over the Prairie Falcons in non-league high school football.
Canon threw for 429 yards and five touchdowns, while Sawyer caught 10 passes for 188 yards and three scores.
Sawyer caught a touchdown pass last week in the season opener, but this was his first real big game with his big brother, with Hockinson (2-0).
Not a surprise, according to Canon.
“His eighth-grade year, wow, we could have used him,” Canon said. “We knew he was going to be one of the best kids on the team because he’s one of the best athletes in Clark County.”
Sawyer was not as sure as his older brother.
“It’s shocking,” Sawyer said. “It’s a privilege to be on varsity and play with him. I don’t know what to say.”
