The nephew of former Boston College and NFL quarterback Doug Flutie, Troy Flutie broke the record of 103 touchdown passes late in the first quarter, according to the MetroWest Daily News, with a 4-yard pass to Alex Hilger.

Flutie, who is headed to Boston College next year, threw three touchdown passes in the game to Hilger and finished with 201 yards passing on 16-of-21 passes.

Flutie, who now has 105 touchdown passes, broke the record of 103, set by Jonathan DiBiaso of Everett in 2011.

Earlier this month, according to ESPN Boston, Flutie set the Massachusetts career yardage mark by surpassing the 8,126-yard total of D.J. Cook of Barnstable. Flutie currently has 8,698 yards on the season.

Natick plays its final game of the season against Framingham on Thanksgiving Day.
