All St. Stanislaus quarterback Myles Brennan needed Friday night was 125 yards.
He eclipsed that and more during Friday’s 40-14 win at D’Iberville to become Mississippi’s career passing leader.
Brennan threw for 366 yards and five touchdowns on 28 of 32 passing — in three quarters. He now stands at 12,801 yards.
“It’s a huge honor and a huge accomplishment,” Brennan said. “Not just a personal accomplishment, but a team accomplishment.”
He passed former Rockachaw Dylan Favre, who threw for 12,559 yards during his prep career, on his fifth completion, a 17-yard pass to running back Andrew Trapani on a screen pass.
Brennan didn’t find out he broke the record until he came off the field following a 14-yard touchdown pass to Chase Rogers.
Brennan, an LSU football commit, entered Friday’s game, having thrown for 12,435 yards during his SSC career.
To get to this point, Brennan threw for 111 yards in a single game as a freshman, 5,797 yards as a sophomore and 5,248 yards as a junior.
This season, Brennan had passed for 1,279 yards through four games.
He passed for 430 at Biloxi, 248 against St. Paul’s, 354 against Long Beach and then 247 last week at Brother Martin in New Orleans.
According to the Clarion-Ledger’s records, which were last updated in 2014 and didn’t include Oxford’s Jack Abraham (12,021 yards from 2012-15), the rest of Mississippi’s leaderboard includes: North Panola’s Clifton Davis III (9,309; 1988-91), Shannon’s Romaro Miller (9,070; 1993-96) and Brookhaven Academy’s Chandler Rogers (8,800; 2007-10).
Friday’s game was called with 1:03 remaining in the third quarter due to lightning.
