San Francisco 49ers v Denver Broncos

High School Football Passing Records- A nod to Peyton Manning

 

Sunday night football kicked off at a crisp mid-60s in Sports Authority Field at Mile High Stadium. Millions were tuned in to watch the Denver Broncos host the San Francisco 49ers. While the viewership is common for any Sunday night football broadcast, this night was special as Peyton Manning was biding to break Brett Favre’s passing touchdown record of 508.

Manning let there be no doubt he would break the record Sunday night as he started off the game seaming touchdown passes to Emmanuel Sanders and then Wes Welker. Each in the open field as if Manning’s offense had completely stifled a normally powerful 49ers defense.

Growing up as a Colt’s fan, I’ve had the pleasure to watch Manning evolve into the quarterback is currently is. I remember the excitement that would come every game day watching Manning pump-fake, step up in the pocket and nail Marvin Harrison. Harrison’s lightning ability as a receiver complimented Manning much like Demaryius Thomas and the rest of the Bronco’s receiving core does now.

Watching Manning line up out of the shotgun with Demaryius Thomas out wide right, I could almost predict the pass was going to him. When Manning took the snap and turned right you could see Thomas get slight separation and Manning laced it with just enough space for Thomas to drag his feet as he hauled in the reception. While it was exciting to watch, it felt more right than invigorating. Manning’s hard work has been well documented throughout his career and getting to this point seemed inevitable.

As a nod to Peyton Manning’s amazing acomplishment last night, the ScoreStream group took a look at some high school passing records.You won’t see Manning’s name in any national high school football record books, which should motivate young athletes everywhere to work hard if their dream is to play! Below are some of the high school football passing records we found most impressive.

219- The record for career touchdown passes thrown set by Maty Mauk from 2008-11. Think about that number for a second: 219! Yes it’s the NFL, but it took over 16 seasons for Peyton to reach the touchdown record of 509. In just 4 seasons oh Ohio high school football Mauk was able to reach almost half of that number!

What’s more impressive is that the record for second is 34 touchdown passes behind him! Mauk is currently in college playing for Missouri Tigers. It will take a lot for this record to ever be beaten!

15- The most touchdown passes thrown in a single game set by Arthur Smith in 1921. In a time when football wasn’t about spread offenses and passing, Arthur Smith somehow managed to throw 15 touchdown passes in a game. We aren’t even sure what to say. Instead, we will stand back, give him a standing ovation and shrug! You, sir, have  more passing touchdowns than the person closest to you. If this is ever broken, we hope to see the game.

91- The most touchdown passes thrown in a season set by Corey Robinson. Isn’t Kentucky known for basketball?! Corey Robinson didn’t care in the 2007 season as he put up 91 passing touchdowns against opponents! Another record that blows away the next closest which is 77, it will take an impressive season to break. Robinson better have been homecoming king, as he provided the team with 546 points through the air (extra points not included)!

18,932- The most career passing yards set by Maty Mauk from 2008-11. It’s not surprising the see Mauk back here knowing that he also holds the record for passing touchdowns. Fun fact, in his high school career the amount of yards thrown by Maty Mauk translates to nearly 11 miles, or the length of over 63 football fields. That’s a lot of space Mauk covered!

A more interesting fact, Maty Mauk dethroned none other than his brother Ben Mauk from the most career yards record. Ben held that record from 2002 until his brother passed him in 2011. Ben is still nearly 2,000 yards in front of second place!

The Mauk’s may be considered the Manning’s of high school football!

St. John Bosco at JSerra preview

bosco_v_jserra

 

 

With a huge matchup coming up tonight, us football fanatics at ScoreStream wanted to take a deeper look at why the St. John Bosco at JSerra Catholic matchup is so special.

On the surface it’s easy to see why this is exciting: St. John Bosco is near the top of every national rankings (including 5th on our ScoreStream ranks, 8th in USA Today Super 25, and 1st in Fox Sports West CIF-SS rankings) and JSerra is off to its second 6-0 start in team history. JSerra is on the cusp on national rankings and after an impressive win against Santa Margarita last week where they had to put up 21 in the 4th quarter to win, it is clear they will give Bosco a tough game at home. St. John Bosco’s hope for an undefeated season ended early with a loss against the nation’s #1 Bishop Gorman Gaels, but they are on 18 game winning streak against other California teams.

How these teams continue to win isn’t too different. Both teams have a Junior running back that is putting up massive big numbers! JSerra’s rusher, Edward Vander, has reached over 900 rushing yards and totaled 17 touchdowns in the first six games. Vander is putting up an impressive 10 yards per carry and over 150 yards per game. In order to win, the Bosco Braves will need to find a way to slow this Lion down.

On the other side of the field, Junior Sean Mcgrew is coming off his best game of the season posting 119 yards and a touchdown in the Braves’ win against the then #1 Mater Dei squad. While he’s been given the rock over 14 times a game and averages just over 100 yards per game. While Mcgrew’s work is impressive, his biggest importance comes in balancing out the dangerous Braves’ offense.

The X-factor: Prolific St. John Bosco quarterback Josh Rosen.

Rosen, a UCLA commit, is the highest ranked QB and number 2 on the Rivals250. He is regarded as one of the most polished offensive players in high school football right now and has kept his Braves competitive in every game that he is under center. Rosen spreads the ball around to an impressive upper-class led receiving core where nine different players have receiving touchdowns.

In order for the JSerra Lions to win this game, they will need to pressure Rosen early and contain the receiving group. Will they be able to keep their undefeated season alive or will the Braves streak against California based teams continue? We are excited to see!
