Hawkeye State produces back-to-back record-holders


For the second time in two weeks, an Iowa high school football player tied the national record for most interceptions returned for a touchdown in a quarter of an 11-player football game.

On August 26, Urbandale (Iowa) High School sophomore Allen Lazard returned two interceptions for touchdowns in the first quarter of Urbandale's game with Des Moines (Iowa) Hoover.

Just one week later on September 2, senior safety Tim Kilfoy of Davenport (Iowa) Assumption High School did the same thing against Burlington (Iowa) High School. The 6-1, 190-pound Kilfoy returned interceptions of 53 and 77 yards for touchdowns in the second quarter of Assumption's 42-7 victory.

In the process, Kilfoy etched his name into the NFHS' National High School Sports Record Book along with Lazard as national record-holders in that category. Kilfoy now has 14 interceptions in his career.
