It looks like the Folsom Bulldogs have found their quarterback of the future.
In possibly the greatest high school varsity debut ever, sophomore quarterback Jake Browning
threw 10 touchdown passes for Folsom (Calif.)
in its 68-28 season-opening win over Woodcreek on Friday. The 10 touchdowns ties a national record held by six players, most recently Tucker Israel of Lake Nora (Orlando, Fla.) in 2011. It also ties the California state record set by David Koral of Pacific Palisades in 1999, according to the Cal-Hi Sports Record Book.
Browning also completed 34 of 51 passes for 686 yards. The yardage total ranks No. 2 in national and state history behind Koral's 764 yards.
Browning had been in a quarterback battle with Taylor Miller-Wing and up until Wednesday, according to an article in the Folsom Telegraph, the choice of a definite starter had yet to be made.
However, as of Friday, Miller-Wing was no longer listed on the Bulldogs' MaxPreps roster.
Meanwhile, Browning made the most of his start. He threw four touchdown passes in the first quarter to help Folsom build a 27-7 lead. He added two more in the second quarter for a 41-28 halftime advantage.
Three more TD tosses came in the third period and he added one to tie the record in the fourth quarter.Phillip Carter
caught five of the touchdown passes for 20, 37, 60, 66 and 78 yards. Troy Knox
caught three for 8, 14 and 9 yards. Rodney Ellison
added a touchdown catch of 9 yards while Lucas Owan
caught a 66-yard scoring toss.
Carter caught 10 passes for 317 yards. The yardage total is a new Sac-Joaquin Section record. Owan caught 13 passes for 236 yards. Qwixcore
Browning replaces Tanner Trosin, who threw for 5,185 yards and 49 touchdowns last year. Browning did not play for the varsity last year.
