Folsom quarterback Jake Browning sets national career touchdowns record

Jake Browning was already in all the record books. Now he’s made certain that he’s at the very top.

On Saturday, Browning threw six touchdown passes in No. 13 Folsom’s 44-7 rout of Tracy. Those six pushed his career total to 220, passing the prior mark held by current Missouri QB Maty Mauk.

Browning finished with six touchdowns through the air and one on the ground for Folsom, which continues to paint a dominant picture in the region. Now that he has the record, Browning can look back on so many of achievements, all while insisting that that his own key to success was never fixating upon the marks in front of him.

“I don’t think about it,” Browning told the Sacramento Bee. “Someone might tell me afterward and I’ll be like, ‘Oh, that’s kind of cool.’ But then you move on. If we broke a rushing record and were still undefeated, then I’d be just as happy. Because we’re winning.”

If you thought Browning’s title chase would come without controversy, think again. While the quarterback was routinely pulled early in the second half during earlier blowout victories, he remained in throughout Saturday’s game, eventually breaking the mark on a touchdown during Folsom’s final drive.

If that’s the biggest complaint most can make about Browning, that’s a heck of a compliment about the way he plays and who he is.
