Not only did Mountain Pointe wrap up its second undefeated regular season last week, but the record book continues to be assaulted by individuals along some team marks as well.
For the first time in school history, a Mountain Pointe team threw for 300 yards, most of which came in the first half when Antonio Hinojosa was in the game, while Jalen Brown tied a record and broke two more in the win over Dobson.
It’s nothing new for the Brown or Hinojosa, but they were reluctant to even talk about it with so much at stake over the next month.
“One day it will be good to look back see all that we did,” Brown said. “Right now though, it’s not important.”
Here is a breakdown of some of the numbers.
* is tied for the most career touchdowns at 45 with Nic Lovett, who played from 1996-99.
* is the all-time leader with 274 points (Lovett had 270).
* has 169 career catches for 3,034 yards and 43 touchdowns, all school marks by a landslide.
* The 177 yards receiving he had against Dobson last week was third most in school history.
* The only receiving record for season, career and game he doesn’t own is catches in a single game. His best is eight while the record is 10 set by Mike Collins in 1992.
* snagged his 15th career interception last week, breaking Collins’ record of 14 set 1992-94.
* In all he owns or is tied for 12 records.
* was the first in school history to break the-300 yard barrier as he tossed for 309 against Dobson last week. The previous record was 264 set by Hinojosa last year and Chad Whittle in 2001.
* is the all-time leader in touchdown passes in career (54) and season (31), most passing yards in a season (2,223) and career (3,885) and is on pace to finish with the season (69.1) and career (64.5) best completion percentages.
* his 23 touchdown passes THIS SEASON would tie for second place for most CAREER TDs in school history with Doug Szanto (1992-93).
* In all he owns eight school records.
* has the most career point after touchdowns at 146 (Jon Mora had 96 from 2007-09).
* he has the second most (62 last year) and third most (49 this year) PATs in a season.
* his nine career field goals are tied for third all time, three behind the school record owned by Kevin Kadisak (2010) and Brian Sellier (1994-95).
* he is expected back on defense this week and needs five unassisted tackles to set the career record currently held by Joey Leal (159 from 2008-09).
* owns the season record for unasssited tackles with 117 (2012).
* four blocked kicks in a season are second in school history and second most in a career.
* four shutouts are the most in school history, breaking last year’s mark by one.
* 312 yards passing last week against Dobson were a school record, surpassing the total of 264 in 2002 against Red Mountain.
* 1,731 yards passing for the season are the second most in school history, topping 1,708 in 2010 in 13 games. The record of 2,372 set last season is within in reach if the Pride has an extended run.
* 501 points scored is the second most in school history behind last year’s 589 but the average scoring mark of 50.1 is record, besting the mark of 36.8 set in 2009.
* 85 points given up is the fewest thus far with 137 (1998) the previous low.
* 71 touchdowns are second in school history behind the 81 scored last season.
* 4,242 yards of total offense ranks fourth in school history behind marks of 4,898 (2009), 5,057 (1995) and 5,720 (2012).
Of course, depending on how long the postseason run is for the Pride many of those can change. While all the team is really concerned about is winning, the history books are still fun to pore over and realize where they stand in the annals of the program.
