PRESTONSBURG Ky. (WYMT) - Last Friday night was a night for the record books in Prestonsburg, as the Blackcats defeated the Pike Central Hawks 83-49.
Sophomore quarterback Jarredd Jarrell completed 18 of 27 passes for a Kentucky state record 676 yards, while tying a state record with nine touchdowns . Jarrell says the offense was just clicking that night and says it's an awesome feeling being in the same group with some of Kentucky's all-time greats.
"You know, like you said, we were just clicking", said Jarrell. The line did a great job, and I threw it to (Bryson Williams and Grant Anderson). You know, they went up and got it. There wasn't much else I could do. It's going to be real awesome, you know. It's a great accomplishment being up there with those guys, a great group of guys. It's just awesome. It's unreal."
Jarrell wasn't the only one playing his way into the record books. In his first game back from a concussion, senior wide receiver Bryson Williams hauled in eight passes for a state record 357 yards, to go along with five touchdown receptions. Williams says the performance came as kind of a surprise, and that he wasn't sure what to expect once he got back on to the field.
"I made a comeback. Everybody knows about the concussion I had, and had to sit out against Belfry, and I thought I'd make a good return", said Williams. I mean, eight catches for 357 yards, what they tell me, isn't bad, so I guess it was a good return on that aspect. I didn't think I was going to do much because I didn't really do much all week, just kind of just threw it around and trying to get back into things. Also being winded, out of shape lot, made a big impact too."
