Friday Night High School Football Scoreboard - October 28th

by Jeff Fisher
High School Football America

I've been around this wonderful game of high school football since I was 8-years old, and in the 42-years since, I can't remember a bigger weekend than this one when it comes to milestones.

First there's J.T. Curtis' historic 500th win in Louisiana.  His father's namesake, John Curtis Christian Academy beat Clark tonight 49-6 to improve J.T's record to 500-54-6 in his 43 years of leading the program.

Curtis is only the second coach in American high school football history to reach the 500 win milestone.  John McKissick of Summerville in South Carolina is the all-time leader in wins with a record 592 victories after a 17-7 loss tonight against Beaufort that dropped the Green Wave to 6-3 this season.

I spoke to both of these incredible high school coaches on the August 11th High School Football America radio show.  Click here to listen to those interviews.

Last night, Kenton (Ohio) High School's Maty Mauk set a new record for all-time pass attempts.  Mauk passed his brother Ben's record of 1,905 in his team's 52-32 win over Wapakoneta that also gave the Wildcats a perfect 10-0 regular season and the Western Buckeye League championship.

Mauk did come-up nine yards short of his brother's all-time yardage mark of 17,364 yards.  Mauk threw for 286 yards last night and ran for another 183 for 469 yards in total offense.  Mauk should set the record in his team's opening round playoff game next week.

Already this year, the Missouri-bound QB has set national marks for career completions, touchdown passes and total yards.

Back on July 27th, I spoke with Maty on High School Football America.  You can listen to that interview by clicking here.

Then there is Dorial Green-Beckham of Hillcrest High School in Missouri, who Thursday night became America's all-time leader in receiving yards.  Beckham-Green caught 11 balls for 303 yards and four touchdowns, giving him 6,109 yards in his career.  The senior passed Abram Booty of Evangel Christian (Louisiana), who had 5,867 yards in the mid-90's.

Below is the catch, an 81-yard catch-and-run, that broke the record.
