The 6-foot, 175-pound junior quarterback threw for 628 yards and nine touchdowns, leading the Cavemen (4-0) to a wild 69-49 win over East (Salt Lake City).
Tied at 34-34 at halftime, Madsen threw five touchdowns on American Fork's first five possessions of the second half and came within one of the state mark of 10 TD passes set by Cammon Cooper of Lehi in 2017.
Madsen has now completed 102 of 159 passes for 1,592 yards and 20 touchdowns for the state's No. 3 team. His numbers are actually ahead of Jaxson Dart
, who has gained a lot of national attention for nationally ranked Corner Canyon (Draper)
Dart, who just received a colllege offer from Arizona State last week, has thrown for 1,386 yards and 19 touchdowns for the 4-0 Chargers who are nationally ranked. American Fork is scheduled to close its regular season Oct. 14 at Corner Canyon.
On Friday, Madsen threw three touchdowns each to Fisher Ingersoll
(9 catches, 240 yards) and tight end Noah Moeaki
(3 catches, 40 yards).
It's not known if Madsen is related to former Los Angeles Lakers forward and current Utah Valley University coach Mark Madsen. But American Fork coach Aaron Behm told the Deseret News
that his quarterback is a total team player like the former Stanford standout and two-time NBA champion.
"Maddux did a great job executing our game plan and really used his weapons well," Behm said. "All the receivers were making plays and Maddux was putting the ball in good spots."
