Todd Dodge coached former Missouri Tiger Chase Daniel at Carroll High School (Southlake, Texas), when Daniel led his team to a perfect 16-0 record and a Texas, Class 5 championship in 2004. Last night, Dodge’s quarterback Mike Richardson set a Texas state record for passing yards in a game with 715 in a 62-55 win over Boerne-Champion, Texas.
By comparison, according to the MSHSAA’s website, the Missouri record for passing yards in a game is 602 by Eric Czerniewski, who played at Montgomery County in a 2004 game against Van-Far. Czerniewski went onto play at Central Missouri and was named the Harlon Hill Trophy winner in 2010, given to the top player in D-II football.
Dodge is in his first year at Marble Falls after spending seven years at Daniel’s alma mater where his teams went 98-11 with four state championships, including three in a row from 2004-06.
Marble Falls QB Mike Richard set the Texas state record and his opponent Kyle Poeske, threw for 577 yards, the fourth most in Texas state history, in a game that featured close to 1,300 yards of passing.
