14 of the greatest single-season QB performances in high school history
When it comes to generational talents on the high school football fields throughout the game’s history, few positions have lit up the stat books and scoreboards like quarterbacks. Athletes who were nearly impossible to stop, some QBs have put up numbers that would be record-setting accomplishments for a four-year starter—yet they did it in one season. From 5,000-plus-yard passing clinics to touchdown totals that seemed like a lopsided video-game simulation to undefeated marks that culminated with state titles, these 14 single-season quarterbacking performances have stood out as the best of the best in high school history.
Nick Gerber, Levelland (Levelland, Texas), 2016
Stats: 5,617 yards passing (337 completions, 522 attempts) | 77 touchdown passes | Four losses during Gerber’s senior year keep him from moving any higher than 14th, but it’s impossible to completely overlook his single-season accomplishments—especially considering he holds the Texas state record for passing yards and touchdowns.
