Mike Richardson sets Texas single-game passing record

Setting a high school football record in any state is a big deal, but setting one in Texas? Well, you know the saying.

Marble Falls senior Mike Richardson set a state single-game record for passing yards with 715 in a 62-55 win over Boerne Champion on Thursday night.

According to the description of the video uploaded above, Isaiah Carson just became the answer to a trivia question that only the most die-hard high school football fans will know. Carson caught the 16-yard pass from Richardson that broke the previous record of 683 passing yards set by Wichita Falls' Dylan Sheffield last year.

"I didn't really think about the yards and completions," Richardson told the San Antonio Express-News. "I just played the game."

Richardson played his game well, completing 35 of 44 passes for seven touchdowns. The Mustangs needed every one of them, as Richardson's counterpart, Kyle Poeske, threw for 595 yards and six touchdowns.

Marble Falls coach Todd Dodge, who has previously coached at Southlake Carroll (Texas) and the University of North Texas, said the record-setting performance was a group effort.

"He was fabulous," Dodge said of Richardson.

Yes. Yes, he was.
