High School QB In Oregon Throws For 11 Touchdowns In One Pretty Good Game
A high school quarterback in Oregon has accomplished a feat never before done in organized football history: in a high-scoring affair, McKenzie High’s Will Totten had 11 TD passes in an epic game against a team from Lowell High.
Totten also tacked on 553 passing yards, ran for 117 more and added a rushing touchdown in his team’s 88-80 win. An impressive display of quarterbacking, to be sure, even when it is taken into account that the amazing statistical performance was accomplished in an 8-man football league, where the field is traditionally smaller and games are more wide open and higher scoring.
At first, the team believed Totten threw for 500 yards and 10 touchdowns, the stats that were originally reported, but after an additional video review of the game footage, it was discovered that Totten had a far better game than originally reported.
Said Totten regarding his remarkable achievement (via Prep Rally):
“It was a wild-west shootout,” Totten told The Register-Guard. “One of the most fun games I have ever been a part of. I’ll probably remember it for the rest of my life.”
Indeed he will. Treasure it now and forever, young Will Totten. As far as amassing insane stats at QB are concerned, this is the best it’s ever going to get. Unless he joins the Arena Football League, I guess. Numbers like the ones Totten put up are pretty commonplace in that league.
Arena Football is still around, right? I have to be honest, I have no idea.
Statistically speaking: QB’s 11 TD passes may be football record [Prep Rally]
