After the last couple of years with Myles Brennan it didn’t seem like there were many St. Stanislaus records left to be broken.

Then sophomore Pat Greer completed a 26-yard touchdown to older brother Will Greer during Friday night’s 41-6 victory over Moss Point. According to SSC athletic historian Joe Gex, the pass was the first brother-to-brother touchdown in the school’s 102 years of playing football.

Pat Greer, who started in place of his other older brother and usual QB-1 Jake Greer, ended up completing 25 of 32 passes for 277 yards with four touchdowns.

“For his first real varsity action we were a little nervous going in obviously because he’s unproven,” SSC coach Jeff Jordan said. “He had a rough first series, but once he completed his first pass, settled his feet and trusted his offensive line he had a fantastic game.

“He was very impressive. I’m real proud of him – and Will, too.”

Greer also threw two touchdowns for 10 and 7 yards to Harrison Brewer as well as a 3-yard strike to Lee Negrotto.

Andrew Trapani and Cahill Marlowe rounded out the scoring for SSC (5-4, 3-1) with respective touchdown runs of 10 and 22 yards.

Brewer finished with a game-high nine receptions for 94 yards and the two scores.

Moss Point (2-8, 1-3) actually opened the scoring Friday when Dewanye Sipp returned a fumbled snap 30 yards.

SSC travels to Pass Christian next week to close out Region 8-4A play; Moss Point visits Bay.
