Top 100 single season passing yardage totals in high school football history

According to best-selling author Malcolm Gladwell, the "tipping point" is "that magic moment when an idea, trend or social behavior crosses a threshold, tips, and spreads like wildfire."

For high school quarterbacks, 1998 was the tipping point.

Prior to 1998, the record for single season passing yardage in high school was 4,656 yards by Philip Deas of Evangel Christian (Shreveport, La.), set just two years earlier in 1996. But in 1998, five quarterbacks broke the record, led by J.R. House of Nitro (W.Va.) with 5,526 yards, Josh Floyd of Shiloh Christian (Springdale, Ark.) with 5,221 yards, Kyle Boller of Hart (Newhall, Calif.) with 4,838, Brock Berlin of Evangel Christian with 4,834, and Kelan Luker of Stephenville (Texas) with 4,697.

Since 1998, single season passing yardage totals have "spread like wildfire" to the point that Deas' total now ranks No. 92 overall. Compare that to the single season rushing yardage record which hasn't been broken in 70 years.

Texas does not have a quarterback in the Top 10 for single season passing yardage totals, but it dominates the Top 100 with 25 total entries. California is next with 15 and Arkansas has 12.

Three coaches have accounted for 24 members of the Top 100. Kevin Kelley of Pulaski Academy (Little Rock, Ark.) has coached 12 of those quarterbacks while Kris Richardson of Folsom (Calif.) has coached four. Mike Mauk, who coached at Kenton (Ohio) and Glendale (Springfield, Mo.) has eight, including the top three and six of the top 13.

Four quarterbacks make the list three times. They include Jake Browning of Folsom, Alex Huston of Glendale (Springfield, Mo.), Layne Hatcher of Pulaski Academy and Grant Gunnell of St. Pius X (Houston, Texas).

Among the most successful of the Top 100 include Heisman Trophy winner and 2019 No. 1 overall draft pick Kyler Murray and Super Bowl champion and NFL MVP Patrick Mahomes.

High school softball: Sheldon begins 2021 season atop preseason OFFICIAL Top 25 Sac-Joaquin Section rankings - OFFICIAL
High school softball: Sheldon begins 2021 season atop preseason MaxPreps Top 25 Sac-Joaquin Section rankings
It was nearly a year ago when the announcement came down that the 2020 high school softball season was canceled due to the rising COVID-19 crisis. Sheldon (Sacramento) was two games in before being told it was all over. Now, the Huskies are back on the field and enter the 2021 season as the top-ranked team in the Sac-Joaquin Section.

Coach Mary Jo Truesdale's ball club is filled with talent. Appalachian State University commit Kennedy Upshire and senior captain AJ Vasquez are the lone seniors returning, but don't let that fool you. Dakota Kennedy (Arizona), D'auna Johnson (Cal) and Reina Zermeno (San Jose State) are some of the top players in the country in the Class of 2022.

Five miles from the Sheldon campus is home to the Thundering Herd. If an early warmup game with third-ranked Del Oro (Loomis) tells us anything, it's watch out for Aissa Silva and Elk Grove. The Class of 2023 pitcher struck out 17 of 23 batters faced. And Del Oro has one of the best lineups in the area.

We will roll out our regular season rankings starting March 23. We will also have a players to watch list coming out next week. If you have a player worth keeping an eye on, email [email protected] or follow on Twitter @smontoyamp

High school football: After fight with cancer, St. Frances Academy standout Aaron Wilson passes away at age 17 - OFFICIAL
High school football: After fight with cancer, St. Frances Academy standout Aaron Wilson passes away at age 17
Aaron Wilson of St. Frances Academy (Baltimore, Md.) has passed away at the age of 17, according to 247Sports recruiting analyst Brian Dohn. Rasheda Mayse, the mother of the promising defensive end prospect started a GoFundMe page in March when it was announced he had developed a high grade midline glioma. He underwent brain surgery to remove some of the mass and was undergoing radiation therapy on his spine.

Wilson had a bright future in football and was regarded as great leader and teammate with a positive attitude.

A testament to his talent on the field, Wilson had 18 offers that included the likes of Florida, Georgia, Miami, Penn State, Tennessee and Texas, according to 247Sports.

During his sophomore season he had 43 tackles, 16 tackles for loss, 11 sacks and two forced fumbles while playing at Ocoee (Fla.). He transferred to the Baltimore power in the spring of 2020 and was selected to the MaxPreps Preseason Junior All-America team before Maryland announced the fall season would be canceled due to the ongoing pandemic.

High school girls basketball: Denver South's Timiya Guevara makes Colorado record 15 3-pointers - OFFICIAL
High school girls basketball: Denver South's Timiya Guevara makes Colorado record 15 3-pointers
Timiya Guevara stands 5 feet, 3 inches, but she can put up some big numbers from long distance. According to Prep Hoops Colorado, the Denver South (Colo.) senior outdid herself Saturday, making a state-record 15 3-pointers while scoring 55 points during a 115-10 win over Lincoln.

The point total is the third most during a game in state history, according to the Colorado High School Activites Association record book. It trails only Abner Waner of ThunderRidge (61 in 2005) and Tracy Hill of Ridgway (59 in 1982).

Guevara's 15 treys shattered the state mark of 12, set in 2020 by Emily Lavier of Alamosa.

According to the NFHS record book, Guevara was two off the national record of 17 shared by Rebecca Greenwell of Owensboro Catholic (Kentucky) in 2013 and Alicia Reyes of Pueblo (Ariz.) in 2016. Guevara's 3-point mark is tied for fourth all-time with six others.

Denver South improved to 11-1 with the victory while Guevara upped her scoring averaging to 22.5. Two games ago, she scored a previous season-high of 30 in a 72-34 win over Thomas Jefferson.

An Arkansas-Pine Bluff commit, Guevara entered the game having made 25-of-53 3-pointers this season while averaging 7.5 assists, 5.0 rebounds and 5.2 steals.

In her three previous seasons, she averaged 19.5 points, 6.3 assists, 5.1 rebounds and 4.6 steals. Her previous career highs were 38 points and five 3-pointers.

Guevara was one of the top 20 players to watch by the Denver Post heading into the season.
Ademide Badmus named 2020-21 OFFICIAL Massachusetts High School Basketball Player of the Year - OFFICIAL
Ademide Badmus named 2020-21 MaxPreps Massachusetts High School Basketball Player of the Year
Each year since 2006, MaxPreps has recognized outstanding performers in high school basketball. America's source for high school sports continues the tradition to close out the 2020-21 season by naming the top player in each state. Selections are based on team success and individual excellence, in addition to local and state accolades.

Ademide Badmus of Lynn English (Lynn) is the 2020-21 MaxPreps Massachusetts High School Basketball Player of the Year. The 6-foot-7 senior center helped the Bulldogs to a 7-0 record in an abbreviated season, capped by a 75-71 comeback win over Everett to claim the Greater Boston League Cup.

Badmus, a four-year starter, had 20 points and 16 rebounds in that game. Earlier in the season — another victory over Everett — he had 15 points and 16 rebounds to go over 1,000 points for his career to go along with 984 rebounds.

Undecided on his college plans, Badmus averaged 22 points and 13 rebounds per game this season.

During those four seasons, Badmus led the Bulldogs to an overall record of 74-7 with two state titles. He put up double-doubles regularly even as a freshman, showing off a nice natural touch around the hoop while also displaying a strong mid-range game.
