Family: Parents, Shaun and Mike; sister, Sam, 27; sister, Ally, 20.

Academics: 90 average.

Last week: Tied a Section V record when he scored eight touchdowns, all runs, during a 59-35 win over York-Pavilion. He finished with 323 yards on 29 carries. Avon, winner of the Section V Class DD Championship in 2014, improved to 6-0.

“My line was phenomenal,” Loomis said. ‘Most of the runs I had, if you watched, I didn’t even get touched. They were getting five or six yards of push.

‘”It feels good that I’m in the record books, but we got the win. That’s all I was concerned with.”

About me: Third-year on Avon’s varsity football team … 5-foot-10, 185 pounds … Scored his previous high of five touchdowns in a game earlier this season. He has a total of 18 through six games … Wears jersey No. 7 … “Winning sectionals last year, that’s what you dream of as a kid, making the whole town proud.” … Plans to major in criminal justice. “I want to be a police officer and then go up from there.” … Also wrestles at 160 pounds at Avon. He advanced to the SuperSectionals last winter … “I’m a big soccer fan, surprisingly. I never played, it’s just something I’ve enjoyed watching the past five years.”
