Totten sets national record for passing touchdowns


On September 30, Finn Rock (Oregon) McKenzie High School senior quarterback Will Totten did what no other person in the history of high school football ‑ be it six-, eight-, nine- or 11-player ‑ has ever done before.

In McKenzie’s 88-80 eight-player football win over Lowell (Oregon) High School, Totten threw a national-record 11 touchdown passes. According to the National Federation of State High School Associations’ National High School Sports Record Book, 10 passing touchdowns in a game was the record for both eight- and 11-player football.

In the Lowell game, the 6-foot, 165-pound Totten completed 19-of-26 passes for 553 yards. By doing so, he also set the eight-player national record for passing yards. The former record of 541 yards was held by Luke Lindell of Dufur (Oregon) High School, who set the mark September 13, 1996 in a game with Touchet (Washington) High School.

Totten also rushed 15 times for 117 yards in the Lowell game, including a 65-yard touchdown run. Thus far this season, he has amassed 1,841 passing yards and has thrown for 29 touchdowns while leading the Eagles to a 4-1 record.
