Mike Richardson and his offensive line earlier this season.

In a game that featured over 1,300 yards of passing offense, Marble Falls (Texas) quarterback Mike Richardson set a Texas state record for passing yardage in a game Thursday with 725 in a 62-55 win over Boerne-Champion (Boerne, Texas).

The 725 yards, as confirmed by head coach Todd Dodge via TexasHSFootball.com editor Christopher Lyke, ranks as the second most in national history behind the 764 yards by David Koral of Pacific Palisades in 2000. This game was also tweeted out by @texashsfootball.

The Texas state record was 683 yards, set last year by Dylan Sheffield of Wichita Falls in a game against Denton. Only two quarterbacks in Texas history, according to Texas Football, had ever thrown for over 600 yards in a game. There were nearly two in the game between Marble Falls and Boerne Champion.

Boerne Champion quarterback Kyle Poeske, who had 577 yards in a game earlier this year, finished with 595 yards, according to the San Antonio Express-News.

Richardson's total nearly doubled his output for the previous three games. He had thrown for 760 yards so far on the season.

Dodge has coached for 26 years at both the high school and college level. He's most noted for his seven years at Carroll (Southlake, Texas) where his teams went 98-11 with four state championships, including three in a row from 2004-06. Each of those final three teams were named mythical national champion by either USA today or the National Prep Poll. He was named National Coach of the Year by USA Today in 2005.

Dodge is in his first year at Marble Falls and has led the team to a 3-1 record.
