Texas high school quarterback throws for 724 yards

A Texas high school quarterback threw for 724 yards Thursday night, setting a state record.

Marble Falls senior quarterback Mike Richardson completed 35 of 45 passes in throwing for the second most yardage in national history behind the 764 yards by David Koral of Pacific Palisades in 2000.

Richardson also had seven passing touchdowns in the 62-55 win over Boerne-Champion.

Richardson broke the state record of 683 yards, set last season by Dylan Sheffield of Wichita Falls.

“It’s one of (those) deals that we knew we were going to score a lot of points because they were pretty explosive themselves offensively,” Marble Falls head coach Todd Dodge, who won four state championships at Southlake Carroll, said. “We started off hot, got some match-ups we liked. We threw for 722 yards and needed every single one of them.”
The school confirmed on Friday that Richardson threw for 724  yards not 722 as Dodge had stated after the game.
