Three Wisconsin commits marched into Camp Randall Stadium Friday, eyeing a state championship for their respective schools. All three -- 2014 commits Joe Panos, Jaden Gault and Billy Hirschfeld -- took home titles.

WIAA Division 1

George Panos and Billy Hirschfeld, Arrowhead (Hartland)

Quarterback Johnny Duranso threw for 235 yards and three touchdowns while running for another 55 yards, as the Warhawks took down the Franklin Sabers, 45-24, to capture their second straight WIAA state championship. The offense scored 14 points in each of the last three quarters to seal the victory. Per the WIAA website, Arrowhead gained a Division 1 state finals-record 465 yards, while the two teams broke the all-time yardage mark in a D1 championship game (892).

WIAA Division 3

Jaden Gault, Monona Grove (Monona)

Monona Grove came back from a 17-point deficit at halftime against the Greendale Panthers, scoring 21 unanswered points in the second half to take home the Division 3 championship, 21-17. The Silver Eagles employed a balanced attack, gaining 209 yards on the ground while throwing for 217 through the air. Brock Offerdahl's 1-yard touchdown with 53 seconds left finished an impressive comeback for the Monona Grove.
