At the time of a lightning delay with 7:39 remaining in the third quarter, the 6-foot-6, 220-pound senior had completed 19 of 29 pass attempts for 467 yards and four touchdowns, helping St. Pius X take a 34-14 lead over Concordia Lutheran (Tomball).
Hunter Lile of Booker held the record, throwing for 14,408 yards between 2011 and 2014. Familiar names like Garrett Gilbert (Lake Travis), Graham Harrell (Ennis) and Drew Tate (Baytown Lee) also dot the state's all-time Top 10.
