Junior quarterback and highly recruited Will Grier from Davidson Day (NC) had what will most likely be the best game he will ever have at any level he plays at. And it will probably end up being the craziest as well.

Grier threw for a national record 837 yards and 10 touchdowns in a 104-80 high school playoff win against Harrells Christian. The old record of 764 yards was set in 2000 by David Koral of Pacific Palisades (CA). Grier said, “It was the craziest thing I’ve ever been apart of. It was ridiculous.”

Grier and Davidson Day now advance to the North Carolina Independent Schools’ Division 2 state championship.

And ridiculous indeed this record is. I know a lot of high school quarterbacks who are lucky just to reach 837 yards in a single season let alone in one game. Not to mention the 184 combined points that also broke the previous state record of 142 that has stood since 1930. Those type of numbers are unimaginable and seem unreal and I don’t know if we will ever see anything like that put up again.

Grier is a 6’3″ 180 pound pro style quarterback that, before this game, has already garnered enough attention for himself. The junior quarterback has received numerous offers, but as of now (granted I know there will be plenty more to follow after this game and into next year) is leaning towards the Florida Gators, North Carolina Tar Heels and Tennessee VolunteersGrier has taken two unofficial visits to the Tar Heels and also an unofficial visit to the Gators as well.

With not only one game left this year but his senior season as well, one can’t help but think that Grier’s stock will continue to rise. I’m not even garner a guess as to where Grier will end up choosing to play college ball because I know that more and more offers are going to come his way. It’ll be real interesting to see how Grier follows up this monumental game and if he can keep playing at a high level for his senior year.
