More records could be on the way for the four-year varsity player who has thrown at least 50 touchdown passes in each of the past three seasons. He has unofficially thrown for 12,222 yards, putting him 315 yards away from breaking the Texas career passing yardage mark of 12,537 held by Garrett Gilbert of Lake Travis (Austin).

Quintanilla broke Graham Harrell's mark of 167 career touchdown passes in Friday's win over Danbury. Quintanilla had eight touchdown passes as a freshman, 53 as a sophomore, 57 as a junior and 50 this year.

Refugio (11-1), which won the Class 2A-2 state championship during Quintanilla's sophomore season in 2011, advances to the third round of the playoffs to play Rogers.
