Report: NC high school quarterback throws for record 837 yards
A North Carolina high school quarterback threw for a national record 837 yards as his team also put up 104 points, reports the Lake Norman Citizen.
Will Grier, a 6’3″ 192-pound junior quarterback from Davidson Day in Davidson, N.C., completed 35 of 42 passes and also threw for 11 touchdowns in his team’s 104-80 victory over Harrells Christian Academy on Friday night.
The numbers are all unofficial, but if they stand up, Grier will have bettered the previous national mark of 764 set in 2000 by Pacific Palisades quarterback David Koral.
According to the paper, the teams combined for more than 1,600 yards of total offense.
Grier came into Friday’s game with almost 4,500 passing yards, 54 touchdowns and five interceptions.
“I don’t really have good words to describe it,” Grier said. “If I didn’t see it myself, I probably would not have believed it. I just feel it’s unbelievable.”
