Video: Marvin Mims 2019 highlightsSee the new national record holder in action.
Hats off to Lone Star (Frisco)
for its 38-20 win over Lancaster on Friday night in the Texas Class 5A Division 1 state playoffs.
While it was no doubt a team win, special recognition has to go to senior Marvin Mims
, who unofficially broke the national record for receiving yards in a season.
The future Oklahoma Sooner finished the night with 2,483 yards, surpassing the NFHS record book's
previous best of 2,464 by J.P. Shohfi of San Marino (Calif.) in 2015.
Mims has also piled up 104 receptions and 31 touchdowns this season.
Cody Cardwell of Stephenville, who piled up 2,427 yards in 1998, was the previous record holder in Texas.
Friday night against Lancaster, Mims caught 10 passes for 214 yards and two touchdowns. 247Sports pegs the 6-foot, 180-pound receiver as a Top 300 prospect.
Lone Star advances to the semifinal round, where it will meet the winner of Saturday's Colleyville Heritage-Denton Ryan game.
