Aidan Atkinson has himself another record.
The star Fairview quarterback, only a junior, threw eight touchdown passes in Thursday’s 56-14 win over Poudre. That gives him 53 this season, which sets the all-time record for a single season.
The previous mark was 52, set by Alamosa’s Clay Garcia in 2006.
The eight touchdowns Atkinson threw for on Thursday night are tied for the fourth-most in a single game.
Atkinson broke the 11-man single-game passing record earlier this season. He also set the record for consecutive touchdown passes in three games with a combined 22 against Legacy, Horizon and Fossil Ridge.
Atkinson’s 54 total touchdowns (he has a rushing score) are also the second-most in a single season, trailing only Only Woodlin’s Harold Klausner (77 in 2005).
