Arnold stands tall at Hampton's passing camp

The stalk from the beans that Jack planted couldn’t have stood any taller than what sophomore quarterback Nathan Arnold did on Saturday in Hampton’s passing league.
He led the Longhorns to a second place finish and caught the eye of several area coaches with his pin-point passing throughout the day. One touchdown pass he delivered was being talked about well after the semi-final game.
The Longhorns were tied with Happy Valley with .08 remaining. Arnold dropped back and threw a 40-yard strike to Samuel Icenhour in the back of the end zone to win the game 28-21.
It was one of many good throws by Arnold during the two-day event. Icenhour’s catch was just as impressive.
“We’ve got all kinds of playmakers on this team with plenty of speed,” said Arnold. “They can all make plays. We gained a lot of confidence from this.  I’m real pleased with the way we played.”
Arnold emerged hotter than a flaming charcoal grill to start the day on Saturday. He began the second game with six straight completions. He racked up five in the following game.
