BYU's lone quarterback commit of the 2013 class was in action last night, as his King's High School took on Archbishop Murphy in a matchup of undefeated teams. Despite Archbishop employing a milk-the-clock, hold-the-ball offense, Green still put up big numbers to lead his team to a big win.
At the end of the night, Green was 18-31 for 316 yards and five touchdowns as King's was victorious 40-15. Green also added King's sixth touchdown on the ground, and the big win came despite King's being up just 14-9 at halftime.
Ten of Green's 18 passes were to Caleb Taylor for 176 yards, who may start to get more college looks via Green's publicity. Green had worked out for USC and UCLA coaches, and was set to work out for Washington before committing to BYU.

Jake Worthen of Scout.com and Jayson Jenks of the Seattle Times were on the scene, and here are some nuggets of insight they provided:
Perfectly thrown ball by Billy Green for a 32yd TD. Showed patience all drive. Kings answers, all tied at 7. #wafbscores— Jake Worthen (@JakeWorthen) September 14, 2012
After an AM fumble, Green uses his legs to buy time and convert a 4th and 15... Green off to great start. End of 1Q, Kings in redzone.— Jake Worthen (@JakeWorthen) September 14, 2012
Green, so far, has looked like the real deal. Can throw the ball accurately. Can run when he needs to. Makes great decisions.— Jayson Jenks (@JaysonJenks) September 14, 2012
#BYU commit Billy Green impressive through one half... Although opponents strategy of running the clock all half has limited his touches...— Jake Worthen (@JakeWorthen) September 14, 2012
Green with another TD pass splitting safeties... Showing great touch. Avoiding temptation of most HS QB's to throw everything as hard as can— Jake Worthen (@JakeWorthen) September 14, 2012
Pressure in his face, Green hits WR in stride for 4th passing TD. #BYU fans check for interview/eval in am. Hint: positive— Jake Worthen (@JakeWorthen) September 14, 2012
Man, Billy Green has a knack for moving around in the pocket. Unreal. Great feet.— Jayson Jenks (@JaysonJenks) September 14, 2012
