Comparing high school football statistics across different states or classifications is a lot like apples and oranges. But it doesn’t make those stats any less impressive for some of the best to ever come through St. Stanislaus.
Ever since the start of the coronavirus pandemic MaxPreps has been rolling out some lists of the nation’s all-time best and Stanislaus was a frequent offender on those lists, starting with the state’s all-time leading passer Myles Brennan. He’s accountable for the 5th best and 26th best passing seasons ever in 2014 and 2015, throwing for well over 5,000 yards in both seasons.
Those seasons sandwiched right around another former Rock-A-Chaw great Dylan Favre, coming in at 16th all-time with 5,511 yards during SSC’s 2009 run to the 4A state championship.
Bonus mention for Southern Miss Quarterback Jack Abraham.
Repeat offenders on the 10,000 yard quarterback club list with Brennan ranking 8th all-time ahead of Favre at 39th overall and then two 5A quarterbacks that went head-to-head in the 2015 title game in Abraham and Laurel’s Keon Howard, the latter winning the gold ball in dramatic fashion. Howard also went to Southern Miss prior to his transfer to Tulane.
Finally, the top 50 all-time receiving seasons featuring SSC’s Krisjon Wilkerson, Favre’s main man in 2009 cracking the top 50 with 2,012 yards.
Those three Stanislaus players are the only Coast players represented on any of these lists.
