Mike Richardson, quarterback for Marble Falls high school, just broke a Texas high school record, throwing 715 yards.
The senior completed 35 of 44 passes and threw for seven touchdowns. Richardson led Marble Falls to a win against Boerne-Champion 62-55.
“I didn’t really think about the yards and completions…I just played the game,” says Richardson.
As great as Richardson played, the team had to play until the final whistle. Both teams combined for 1,310 passing yards, which is currently an unofficial state record.
Marble Falls offense was just spectacular. The team had six touchdown drives hat took less than six plays. Garrett Gray, receiver for Marble Falls, was one of the main reasons Richadson played so well. Gray had 13 receptions for 294 yards and five touchdowns.
Richardson’s counterpart Kyle Peske also threw for an amazing game. Poeske threw for 595 yards on 36 of 60 passing. Poeske tied for the No. 4 all-time mark and already passed 1,485 yards in three games.
The Texas QB broke the original state record, which was held my Dylan Sheffield. Sheffield threw 683 yards against Denton high school in 2011. Richardson joins an elite class of Texas high school quarterbacks. His 715 yards is not only impressive for a high school player, but any football QB at any level. I wouldn’t be surprised if the Texas star is not highly pursued by great college teams.
Although the Texas quarterback broke the Texas high school record, incredibly he comes second to David Koral’s 764 yards for California’s Pacific Palisades high in 2000.
