Drew Pyne has thrown 16 touchdown passes and a mere one interception for New Canaan his last seven games, while his Greenwich counterpart, Gavin Muir, has 28 scoring strikes, while being picked off only six times this season.

Yes, like their respective teams, Pyne and Muir are playing at a sky-high level and with the strong-armed quarterbacks leading their offenses, it’s no a coincidence their squads will collide in Saturday’s CIAC Class LL football final.

The much-anticipated 10 a.m. matchup at Stamford High School’s Boyle Stadium is a rare father-and-son competition, between New Canaan coach Lou Marinelli and his son John, Greenwich’s coach. It’s also a game featuring two of the premier quarterbacks in the state.
